And I'm feeling good!

Hello Everyone, as the title says I'm feeling good!

I am planning a bus ride out to pick up some things I need and I am not even worried abut it! Shock and amazement are not strong enough words. The simplest of tasks and I'm not worried. Do you know what I put this down to? being able to come on here among friends that know what I am talking about. YOU.. yes you.. have made this possible. Thank you very much! I wish you all my very best from the bottom of my heart ( yep I have 1 of those too lol ). My daughter called to see me yesterday with my 2 youngest grandchildren and we had the whole visit without 1 single moan from me about me. That is because you put up with me and my anxiety and depression, because you understand how I feel as I understand how you feel. Now I know all too well that this won't last, but while it does I will appreciate every minute. Even if it's for an hour or less it's a bonus I did not expect!. My elderly Mother has other plans for today too so I can come and go as I please : / I know, I know...I should be able to do as I like anyway but living next door makes that impossible. I feel like a 2 year old that's been let loose in a sweet shop haha or............maybe I am a fruit loop and I have gone insane after all? LOL . I will be back soon xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi. ellabella. Yes. it's me and WHOOPEE. What an achievement!!! I put this down to your journey for that dreaded interview the other day. YOU SUCEEDED in spite of yourself and you did it with humour. (Well, you made us laugh, anyway). Success, however small, is always a BIG step forward. Bless you and we all go with you. jonathan.

Thank you all you inspire me so much! I had a wonderful time ! Boy I will sleep tonight! I wish you all have such a day as this has been! I just got home before a big thunder storm, yet while I was out it was beautiful, sunny with fresh winds. I saw the horses with their foals! I am a bit simple minded.... I thought they were only born in the springtime LOL . Oh Rose I hope you were able to help your friend as you help us. My heart goes out to all who are suffering tonight. You have some hope, honestly....you too might get a "day off " soon God willing, and it will be when you are least expecting it ; ) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

At the start you were made to feel like some sort of nut job because it wasn t so common. unfortunately at the min I m goin through a tough spell.

Hi Sliphop

You might do better to start your own blog/thread - you're more likely to get answers/support that way. Sorry you're feeling so down atm, do post again, there's lots of support on here from wonderful people who understand and don't judge.

Welcome to the site :)

Good luck

Hi. slihop. Yes, start your own thread and let us hear from you. The help you can get here is amazing. If you are not good with words just put down how you feel. There is no one on this site who will be upset by what you say. Good luck. jonathan.

Well Done EB... it gets easier each time you go on a bus. At first I was really bad about getting on public transport but I am absolutely fine with buses now. Next is to tackle the trains!

This is brilliant to read. I am so glad you're doing better and have had a moment of feeling good. As you know, the more bus rides you do the easier it should get. You sound like you do a lot for other people, so I hope you're able to take some time for yourself too x
