It's a beautiful spring morning here and very welcome it is too!
I'm really pleased to see you back on the thread sinbad - your last post was very thought-provoking and sensitive. I do know quite a bit about BPD and it's obvious that you're working incredibly hard every day to counteract the issues you face. I'm also very pleased to be part of a community here that you find to be helpful, friendly and non-judgemental.
Cinders - I hope you get out for a run today. I'm sure you would be fine doing the new parkrun but maybe a private time trial or two would be good first. I haven't run in ages and really need to make some positive lifestyle changes again, including getting my running shoes on!
trigger- great news in the cross country pb! I also hope you enjoy your week or so of trashy TV!
I hope everyone else is good - I seriously need to get my drinking, eating and exercise back on track as it's been a bad month or two. Other than that, life feels pretty good but booze and laziness do keep creeping up on me (along with some unwelcome added weight)!
Sinbad - don't let the training go to waste as you'll be in really good shape for a 10k and it might mean that you enjoy running, rather than feeling pressure because of it. For what it's worth, I think you've made a good move, as long as you don't think negatively about not doing the marathon.
Sinbad - I can't imagine the trauma you've experienced and the difficulties it continues to cause. Do you feel that you have exhausted all avenues of professional support available to you? I know there are some fairly new methods of working with trauma that have been effective so just wondering if you're still being offered new therapies/treatments or whether the support you get now is more of a practical and maintenance kind.
I hope everyone else is OK - I'm still battling to get away from my boozing, bad food and non-running lifestyle. I'm in a rut and although I keep peering over the edge I haven't been able to pull myself out just yet. We have violent wind and rain here so not a good day for running.
Oh, Sinbad, about the new thread on beginners. It's a very thoughtful thing to do, although I'll struggle to leave this one, just because of all the years and memories. However, if it proves that there is no way to get this thread appearing where it should, I would consider changing where I post because we wouldn't want to be a closed group - that's just not what this thread is about. Surely we can get an explanation for why this one no longer appears though??
