I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
My heating is playing up. The timer keeps getting stuck so it tends to stay on when it is supposed to be turning off and the house is getting too hot. So I am haivng to turn it off when I go out meaning that I come home to a cold house
Well I'm going to attempt a running club run. Feeling OK today but definitely still got a cough. Will take a bottle of water with me. If it's not to be at least I'll have tried.
Run achieved - almost 6 miles as well. It actually went better this week than the last couple of weeks. Having the cold to worry about actually seemed to work better for me than worrying about the anxiety. The cold was therefore a handicap but nowhere near as much of one as the anxiety normally is. Really got to work on something here to be able to focus my thoughts in a better way when running.
Another action point identified. A friend of mine has flagged up on her Facebook page something about Mental Health Awareness Week. I know that she has suffered from depression herself - but it was somebody else who told me so I've been wary of bringing it up. This gives me the chance to tell her about myself. Hopefully this will be beneficial as I've found with people that know so far, a couple of friends who know do know try to be supportive but really don't seem to understand things- so opening up to someone else who will understand seems a good idea.
Great news, solb.
Got a message back from my friend. Turns out she spent 10 years on anti-depressants is currently not on them but is going back to the doctors as is having a bad spell and thinks she'll have to start again. Sad news again in that I didn't realise there was a problem again - but the good thing is there's someone locally that I can talk to and compare notes.
Ooh that's fantastic, yay!!!!
I'm tired out, have been to see my half sister who is always a bit mean to me which made me sad but then called in and saw the minis so I'm happy again. I feel wiped out, I was supposed to be doing lots of stuff today and I've achieved nothing, I'm really running out of time too. I need to go out again now and I want to sleep instead. I feel a bit like I need to get a grip today!
I had a fun night out eating pancakes last night.
Just been proof reading through my job app, it looks fab. It gets submitted tomorrow.
Good luck Bear!
I've taken a risk and done something scary that I can't talk about on here. I hope it turns out ok.
Been lazy tonight (other than on the mundane forum) due to football being off due to untimely snow. Dare I say I'm feeling a bit better at the moment.
My boss paid a visit to the office today - but I totally wimped out of saying anything. No regrets though - really need to think things through before doing anything like that - which I hadn't.
I did it, I did it!!! HA HAAAAA take that OCD, I just phoned a total stranger and made an appointment for tomorrow - yay!!! I think I've beaten OCD too now, I still have to work at each thing but there doesn't feel like there's anything that's completely outside of my control (in theory, sure I'll still fall over a bit, and I choose to comply with some rituals)
Hope you can find a handy plumber by eck
