Well how tie has flown by, it’s been a busy week for me, have not even had a chance to come on and write. All weekend I was looking online to find a kitten, my kitten is 9 months and wanted to find a friend for her. The problem is so many people want kitten’s so if you’re not first in then they are normally taken. Plus I’m a bit picky and wanted to find the perfect kitten so that made it harder also. Still I kept persevering and eventually I found a little stunner on Tuesday morning. I sent a text immediately and asked if he was still available, said that I wanted him if so and the reply was good news. I carried on texting and asking questions until a blow came saying someone was coming to pick up the kitten later. I was pretty gutted as I was unable to call at the time so I politely replied saying I had said from the first text I wanted him. Not long after that I got a reply saying I was correct so I made a call and said I would come later to collect him. So in the evening, I drove over and collected my new bundle of joy and I am so happy that I did. The little one looks like the big one when she was little and has all the same trait’s, it’s great.
As my older one is female and the younger one is male I thought they would get on easier, however the first introduction there was a lot of hissing. Most of the hissing was from my older kitten and I was a little worried to begin with, although I spoke to my friend and she reminded me this is normal for the first few days. Luckily now they are getting on a lot better now 3 days on, chasing each other around the place, so happy days. We were trying to think of names for him too, we were going to call him magic although in the end I decided it didn’t sound right. The little one has a small white marking on his chest and we nearly lost him to somebody else so I we decided to call him Lucky.
So apart from all the stuff with the kitten’s, I am still sore due to my injury and I am going back to the Osteopath today for some more work. I really ache this morning as I went for a run yesterday so I am glad my appointment is today.
I have also been asked to take part in a talking from experience project s going for a meeting to talk about that in a couple of weeks. It’s a good way to educate young people about your own experience and try to dissuade them from making the same mistakes.
I went to see my psychiatrist this week, although it was a new one this time, I rather liked the old one to be honest. The problem is the SHO’s (who work under the psychiatrist’s) they rotate every 6 months so you end up with new one’s after a while. I told him how well I am doing and that I have stopped my medication and all was fine. It’s really nice to be free from the tunnel of darkness for once as that has been a reoccurring pattern in my life. I am thankful that I am busy enough not to think and worry about my problems as I did on the past and am looking forward nicely. I have been networking with lots of people that work in the BPD side of things too and I am hoping that something good will come out there also.
I need a haircut……… so I am going in the morning to get my hair cut and this time even shorter than before. It’s such a mess at the moment that I’m wearing hats all the time. I talked about pampering last weekend and didn’t do enough so maybe I can return to it this weekend.
I have been in a fair bit of pain for most of the week so no training has been going on. It makes me feel a little sad as my training is what make’s me feel so much better and I have to ease off of it for a while. Going to watch what I eat as much as I can and try and drink 3 cups of green tea per day. I am trying to lose some weight you see and without all the exercise I’ve been doing then I am not going to get anywhere. I have completely stopped one of my medication’s now which I believe is partially to blame for my weight gain. I guess only time will tell if that was the main source of the problem but I am hoping that it was.
I said I was going to pamper myself this weekend but so far I have only had a go on my shiatsu foot massager. Mind you it’s great, it’s electronic and heats up with infra-red and after you feel so much more relaxed. I have stayed in mind you and took it easy because of the pain and I have spent some time looking for new cars. I can’t really make my mind up what I want, apart from small, economical, but one that look’s nice too. As I said before if I do change car then I am really going to miss my little one.
So to add to the pain, someone I’ve known for a long time from the past told me today that he’s going to be a Dad in April. Bit of a kick to the stomach and a bit of a long story to explain but was pretty gutted to hear the news.
Got a fair bit to do this week so should keep me nice and busy, just hope it isn’t too long till I can have another workout.
So all in all I hope this week is better than the last as I’ve been on a bit of a good roll recently and I have been happy with the balance.
I haven’t had such a good time this week as I’ve been in a fair bit of pain, I didn’t feel good on Tuesday and the pain came back on Wednesday night. I had this sharp twinge in my shoulder which made me feel sick every time the pain came. A few weeks ago I did notice that a previous muscle tear in my back was aching but carried on working out. Anyhow I booked to see the Osteopath that I saw before about my back and they started working on me. Turns out I have a case of scaliosis as my spine has gone out of line and the muscle’s have been working harder. I also have some issue’s with my neck and right rotator cuffs, so basically falling apart, lol. I had some soft tissue work done and then a nice whole lot of cracks in my back and spine, nice! Still feel a bit better for it today although I still ache and my shoulder still twinge’s from time to time
So as things have been really quite good recently, this is a slight set back although I am not going to let it get me down too much. I was meant to be at a friend’s birthday tonight but think I will just give it a miss and have a nice chilled one instead. I made a stew last night which was lovely and there’s more left for this evening’s meal
I have finally put in to be a carer for the one I look after so a little reward will hopefully be coming there, I have been doing for a long time for the love so a little something would help. I mean as much as it keeps me busy looking after him I also have to go through a lot of stress which isn’t so good. We are thinking about getting a new car though, as I mostly drive everywhere, so that will be nice if it come’s off. I will really miss my little car but it’s not so practical these days, like when we went to Devon for a week in a little two-seater. I am going to have to find something pretty special so I don’t miss my old car so much so having a look about to see what’s out there.
Think I should make this weekend a pamper one, seen as I’m not feeling too great and hopefully it will cheer me up………
Things are still really good at the moment so I am happy to say that I’m not complaining. I have been so busy what with my PD course, voluntary work and then looking the one that I care for. I completed my course last week so really pleased that I can start doing some training soon. I went for a meeting at my Psychotherapy service today and had a chat with my therapist before we started about how it all went.
The meeting went well also, we all had to give our feedback about how we found the service and the one thing that we all agreed is what a good service we have all had. Some area’s are not so lucky to have such good service’s but hopefully after the feedback then other area’s will get the PD service they deserve and are entitled to.
I also had my monthly supervision this week so had a good chat about things that have been going on recently. I was lucky enough to be taken for lunch also so that was nice after the long drive to Kent. Mind you next time we are going to try it on the telephone, going to be strange… but will see how it goes.
Things in general are on the up and that in turn makes my days brighter… in 2008 I was hardly functioning and now I am really busy doing so many positive things… Happy days
PS – need to do another training session, not long till my half marathon now…………. :s
