I was wanting to post with tales of improvements and big achievements for my next update but unfortunately last week had some truly terrible episodes for me and I feel a bit broken. So I thought I would try something different. I was trying to picture what a good month would look like, not a fantasy one but a real one. My example is below, it would be awesome to hear what some of your 'good months' would be.
So here goes........
' Wow that was a good month. Managed to do my full time hours at work and made some good progress on that project that has been worrying me. It was lovely having a coffee and meal with Jackie, walking the dogs in the Trossachs was awesome. Managed to walk the little dog nearly every day and she seems happier for it. Went to choir four times and didn't miss a week, even managed to memorise a song! Getting up is getting easier and I have lost a bit of weight through eating no takeaways (well there was that one curry). Got the new canoe and fitted it out, first trip out from luss on to Loch Lomond was terrifying but camping on the island was so cool. Went on two walks with my walking club, starting to remember people's names now. Wrote a few replies on Action for Depression, hopefully it helped. Next month I have my first trip to the hospice with my wee dog who I have signed up as a therapy pet, nervous but it will be nice to make people smile'.
Looking forward to reading about what a 'good month' would look like for you guys.
Thanks for being there, Matt
