hyper and excited by going shopping :)

So as the title suggests I went shopping...

there was me and the three children, we went to three shops - even had a chat to someone we know who was going on holiday - and nothing was wrong, didn't worry about feeling sick, didn't feel sick and picked up everything we went out for...doesn't sound too exciting but I was euphoric when we got home - even a few whoops, woohoo

Hi

Yes that is a big thing

Taking 3 kids shopping for one you have to be very brave :-/

Then managing to get what you went for , be sociable & your fear keeping it at bay well all I can say is well done & I hope you feel really proud of what you did today

Love

yeah feeling pretty courageous - never noticed how hard it was before, I guess there is something good about the raised sense of awareness anxiety brings...

Well done on your achievement going shopping with the children and managing to get what you went for. :) Some people do not manage that alone.

Glad you managed to have a little chat while you were out not feeling anxious about being sick.

This is a brilliant goal and you have every right to feel woohoo :)
