So today is World Health Day and I thought it was time I did an update on how I’m feeling.
Last week I managed to queue in the local supermarket without a glimmer of a panic attack or even a slight wobble. I thought I was cured! If I could have high-fived myself I would have done. I was thrilled walking out of the shop…I should have known it was too good to be true.
It’s been a while since I’ve written about this mainly because I wanted to see what I have found helpful in case it might be of help to others. I’m aware this isn’t a one size fits all and what has helped me might not help you. I almost scream when I’m told to go for a walk – been there, done that and to be honest it just makes me think more.
So I did the play on Friday and thought I might have turned a corner and be on the way to winning this battle. The mind has a way of lulling you into a false sense of security and here I am again, a bag of bloody nerves.
Sorry I’ve been so quiet lately, there’s been so much going on and a lot to think about. I really surprised myself today – maybe there’s a glimmer of hope after all.
It’s been a busy week. Most of the time I haven’t wanted to leave the house but I forced myself.
