Can confirm, is frickin' COLD here too!!  I put the fire on first thing this morning!  My car is covered in frost... ugghh!  Winter really is a thing, huh. Siigghh...

 

I hope your appointment goes well!  Let us know yeah?

 

I totally, totally, totally get the thing about meeting friends.  I'm the kind of person that makes plans ok, but then as it draws nearer I just... don't want to.  And it's not even really for any of the same reasons, I guess?  I'd just rather stay home in my own space and relax and watch trash TV in my sweatpants??  It's comfier, and especially after a long day of mental struggling the last thing I want to do is expend that effort to be social face to face... I know that probably sounds bad??  But it's a real feel for sure!

 

Hey Shaar.... it doesnt sound bad at all... if thats how you feel then OWN that feeling and be comfortable with it :)

 

I think if im alone TOO much, i get the head panic, i start to hallucinate more, and generally can become one of those strange isolated arty type freak haha talking to myself and crawling the walls.... :o its good for me to see friends and make an effort to dress up, put some lipstick on and my hoop earrings , you know?!

 

Anyway, im staying home. Ive just been to the post office and the shops, im now home, the fire is on, my music is on, i have some chicken and crusty bread for a nice sandwich later with salad....ill maybe regret it, or get restless later on when im thinking i could be boozing...but ive made my decision. 

 

Therapy went REALLY well again. He is so fucking amazing, seriously. We spoke about my little drinking problem a bit. Talked about meditation. Talked about some childhood stuff, for the first time EVER in therapy (and ive had a LOT of therapy) i actually cried a little bit. Maybe i realise some things that happened where not my fault?! He told me to go to my self as a younger me, and what would i do or say..... i said i would say, it gets harder from here so enjoy  yourself, but also, you will survive. You will become an adult and you will do good things and have a lot of friends and people who love you. I just started crying :( but anyway, im getting a little emotional right now actually haha. 

 

So yeah... it was good. Thanks for asking Shaar xxx

Glad to hear the day is going well.

You know "I'm broke" is the best excuse ever for not going out drinking if you don't want to share what you're going through with everyone.

I get the conflict though - having people around you can definitely be warm and positive. It's great you're thinking all this through. Good job!

Your pic of the ducks reminfded me of our visit to the UK many moons ago. (25 years). Our friends took us to Oxford (I think) to a tea shop and to feed ducks somewhere.  Only they didn’t tell us they were psycho ducks,  oh yeah and there were like five million billion psycho ducks.  They laughed their asses off.  I am now mildly terrified of ducks.

Love your Christmas tree and all the lights. And you look adorable. It is rather unnerving seeing yourself on video though. Whenever I post a video, I worry about how many wrinkles I have, or the bags under my eye, or that my tummy looks too big, agh the list could go on. I am trying to stop that negative talk to myself though.

AWWWW THANK YOU <3

 

Yes, i guess my accent is part Yorkshire, part Manchester. Other English people may say differently. But i think that describes it. I was born in Liverpool, moved to Yorkshire when 6, and lived in Manchester for 8 years now. And ive definitely picked up the 'Manc' accent. haha my family in Liverpool all say 'ewwww you sound Manc!!!' haha
