    >Just a quick note to say I’m pretty tired today but feeling a lot less stressed and depressed and bitchy. I’d even go as far as saying I’m feeling good today but I don’t want to jinx it!

    >Kinda Meh and Bitchy

    >I feel kinda meh and bitchy today. I’ve been surfing Facebook and thinking everyone else has a better life than me and I’ve been reading blogs and not able to leave comments because most of the ones I want to leave are not the supportive friendly ones but the “welcome to my world, now you know what it’s like” ones. And I could cheerfully have killed someone earlier for moving my chair with the brakes on – when I’d only had them tightened an hour earlier. I just let them do it tho. My counsellor talks about how I will never not have bad days because they are a normal…

    >Sailing Stuff

    >On Tuesday I went to Sailability as I do most Tuesday’s in the summer/spring/early autumn. I had the best time I have ever had up there. Usually I sail an Access Dinghy – Specifically the 2.3 model shown there although I have sailed the double with my friend Neil’s daughter many times. in fact, all but one time this year I think. We’ve not been getting on very well with that boat lately when we have both of us in it. Much as I have lost a lot of weight this year the two of us together pushes us over the weight limit for it, I found out this week…

    >Small Changes ~ No Regrets

    >So… it’s Tuesday and time again to report my progress for the Tales from the Scales May Day challenge. And I stayed the same this which I am totally fine and completely happy with. I am very pleased with how I ate and moved my body last week and how HEALTHY I was/am. It’s a bit of an eye-opener for me but a good one because it means I don’t have any excuses left any more. I planned that I would have a treat on Sunday. And between Wednesday and then I stuck to my diet completely and utterly. Just the treat on Sunday too nothing else, no “well I’ve…

    >I love my job, I really do. I would, obviously, love it more if it were paid but never mind. Situations being what they are it’s better for me that it is not. But some days I am sat there with my clients wondering quite why I am spending my time volunteering for CAB. And lately I’ve definitely been finding the patience and compassion that is sometimes needed to be in short supply. Which occasionally is fine but usually is not. I am tired, and I’m stressed and more than ready for my upcoming break. But I do need to find my “that was really annoying but this is my…

    >Random thoughts on health and life

    >Lots of sleep last night; 12 hours. Possibly slightly too much because I still feel somewhat lethargic but equally no real aches and pains this morning and a bit happier. So I don’t know really. It’s the second of June and I haven’t missed any medication this year! Well, technically I missed one dose of my antibiotics because I dropped it on the floor and couldn’t reach it BUT I’ve not missed any of my regular meds. I haven’t had any extra treats or some such on my diet since Tuesday. Yay! And I’ve been a for a few long walks in my manual chair this week. I’d forgotten how…
