Oh dear. I think the most important thing right now is that you seem to be able to spend more time with the minis. They grow up so quick so that's a important part of your progress to be able to so them and give them treats.
Hope the appointment goes OK.
I've got orienteering again in the morning - if I can force myself to decide that it's a better option than exploring the four corners of the duvet.
The 'oh dear' was for the first post - not for the Christmas cheer!
Morning. I'm a bit fragile today but a lot better than yesterday. I didn't wake up till 9! I've slept for hours and hours.
Solb - hope the coughing is sorted. Sounds very unpleasant so good luck at the doctors on Monday. (don't be scared if he sends you for an x-ray, its standard practice for coughing blood and if he/she doesn't then you should ask for one. Most turn out okay so I don't want to panic you but its best to be thorough).
SOLB have a good one today and don't worry about trying to eat when out. I'm sure everyone understands.
SD - hope the sleep has done some good. My evening sleep just seemed to lead to only half a nights sleep at the right time. I suppose it adds up to the same but has left me feeling a bit rough this morning.
Oh that's so dreadful. I can see why it can be so difficult for you. That was a really big thing to come out with on here. As you know, people on here are with you all the way. Take those deep breaths and go for it!
Oh SOLB sweetie that's terrible Well done on being brave and talking about it though
Well done for going in SOLB. You're very brave to talk about it and deal with it, I mean that genuinely and in a non-condescending way. Hope it all goes well and make sure you go to the doctor about your coughing!
Hooray for hugs and hooray for SOLB for going through with it today. Tremendous effort.
great news SOLB
have got the inevitable mood crash from yesterday
SOLB, be proud of yourself! There's nothing wrong with feeling like you achieved something. You felt the fear and did it anyway (to paraphrase the book). I'm fairly sure that's most people's definition of bravery.
As for the post-social event shame, don't worry about it! I bounce from one social faux pas car crash to another. And people still talk to me (I don't know why).
Just been out to the woods for a run. 33 minutes this time - I keep pushing myself to do an extra minute each time. It's been a tough week and I felt pretty rough when out orienteering yesterday and I really couldn't see how I was going to make it out today. I felt a bit better as Saturday wore on though. What made the difference though was seeing what SOLB achieved yesterday. I thought if SOLB can achieve that then me getting out for a run should be easy by comparison. Thanks SOLB - you made it happen and I hope in return it gives you something to help your mood today.
Frodo, these situations can be difficult at times. It's not pathetic just at times it can be too much to face up to. After all, they could have come over and spoken to you. It's something I often feel awkward about when I'm out. I'd rather just sit where I am and feel awkward about going over to anyone else that I know. When I'm not on top of my game it's just so difficult to open a conversation. Also people are always in the middle of another conversation so I always thing what if I go over there have no idea what they're talking about and can't work my way in. I'd feel such an idiot. These things aren't easy even if some people make them look easy so don't beat yourself up over it.
I am glad that you mentioned the new shed was arriving tomorrow though, otherwise I would thought the old one had been destroyed in frustration!
I see SOLB's name has received some festive decoration!
