I feel like I’m finally getting somewhere. I finished my dramatherapy sessions today and it’s been so helpful to me.
On Sunday I went along to a Mindfulness event hosted by Paddy Brosnan. Paddy is mindfulness teacher and inspirational speaker. I was lucky enough to be invited to attend and I thought I might learn something.
Yet again I’ve given myself a bit of a kick up the backside and told myself to ‘cop on’. This old depression thing is a devil, one minute I’m riding along the crest of a wave, the next I’ve fallen on my surfboard and overwhelmed by a wave….but I have so much to be grateful for.
It’s been a mixed bag of emotions this week. I feel like I’m on a wave, sometimes I’m a champion surfer riding the white horses, other times I’m struggling to stay afloat. I have found a new thing that helps though.
I bumped into a lady this week who has been reading the blog. She stopped and we had a lovely chat. She shared some of her story. It’s moments like this that remind me why I write about my anxiety issues.
Since being diagnosed with anxiety I’ve spent quite a lot of time looking at the way I behave, it’s quite therapeutic in a way, it’s also quite annoying.
