Gosh still feeling pretty awful today, woke up with a bad back and a bad headache, it’s all just so annoying at the moment. Still I have taken some pain killers and have the TENS machine on my back giving me little shocks as we speak and as I am typing. I spent most of yesterday indoors as I still feel pretty ropey and the medication they gave me for my stomach feels pretty yuck also. I was hoping to get out and do a few bits today although now I am not sure as my back is killing me, will have to see how the machine does.
On a better note…. Today I have written a cheque to http://www.mentalhealth.org.uk which is my first donation from money raised from the sale of the wristbands. It was a very nice feeling to write the cheque out, post it on the page and then send it down the road to be posted. I chose The Mental Health Foundation as my first donation as they have been a HUGE support of my work to remove the stigma attached to Personality Disorder. I have a great contact there and she is always so supportive and positive about the things I am doing and has posted links to my work several times.
The PDSN competition will still be happening although I am waiting on another delivery still. I would also like to feel a bit better before I start and hope for the last third of the wristbands to sell too. The feedback from the wristbands has been fantastic and I am glad everyone feels just as good about them as I do.
I have been a busy Bee the last few weeks, the one I look after has been asked to move. We have been over his place trying to clear out as much as we can as he is only being offered a smaller place. We have given loads away to Help The Aged Charity which makes us feel good. The good thing is they even come to collect whatever items we have but we make sure it’s worthwhile. We have been moving furniture out also but the only problem is the council will only take items at a time so it’s taking some time to do.
The thing is the people asking him to move aren’t making things easy for us so we have decided to seek some further advice. The only reason he is being asked to move is the fact they are saying the place is too big for him. On the other hand he has lots of reasons why he wants to stay in the place with one of them being that he was born there.
As for me at the moment, I have been doing well most of the time, I have had the odd occasion of anxiety but it’s not been too bad. I haven’t been able to exercise much as I’ve managed to hurt my shoulder now, doh! I have been doing some walking however and carried four bags of heavy shopping home the other day so it’s not all bad! Plus the fact that we have been busy here moving things about so that must be burning calories also. My two kittens always keep me busy also and they are such a delight to have and have brightened up my life.
My depression has been a lot better lately also, I don’t feel nowhere near as down and I have a lot of motivation. I have suffered with it for most of my life so it’s nice that it’s not dragging me down at the moment. The fact that I have so much going on and not enough time to worry about my problems really help, so keeping busy is the key.
The fan page is going great, we’re almost at 200 fans now and new people are joining every day and we all share the same understanding. So if you haven’t already then come join us…….
