So glad the job suits you. Being paid for what you would do for free is ideal!
£500 is amazing! You should be proud. I hope you are taking your costs of materials though, makes it sustainable and besides, there is more than one type of self care.
I am able to turn my life around because I have! I am driven, motivated, hard working and emphatic!
Agreed, agreed, agreed, agreed, agreed! I am proud to be your friend.
Work is going well, tough schedule as ever but as long as I keep thinking 'What would Em do?' along with being clear when I can't take on anymore, I keep on top of it all. Study is going well. Got a break from study until New Year. Wayhey!
Therapy has sort of ended, sort of not. I have been equiped with a new set of tools and sent out to see how I do with one session every six weeks or so to keep me on track. Two sessions left. The therapy has really been great for me. Really am so much more open and comfortable with my emotions. So much more comfortable with myself and other people. If I tried to list the improvements I would be typing for days. The damaging compulsions and depression with its negative predictions are still here but I think I know how to improve both. Some good progress with the compulsions today which has really changed my view of them. A good first step. Got the medication appointment in a little over a week. Hopefully I will get something in a dose that will help the depression. If not there are other things I can and will do which may well help on their own.
I've got some fun planned and want to give myself the promised reward of seeing a couple of shows before study kicks in again. Have you got any rewards planned for yourself?
I am strong, intelligent, trustworthy, warm hearted, playful and care about my friends. I am learning to value myself. I also write rhymes which are far less terrible and more amusing than the evidence would suggest.
Bye for now my wonderful, capable and lovely friend.
