Well I have been writing about my piles of stuff ...clothes, craft material you name it and I probably have it
and I am also going through a mental health difficulty - low mood, so exhausted that I can't get up, feeling that I am of no use to anyone e.t.c.
So I have been sick for a while and I am thinking that writing here might help me perk up a bit and start feeling that I am a bit o.k. and a bit useful.
Also when I am in bed sick I get to thinking dark thoughts and writing here is a way of banishing them.
As I said in a post that I just wrote in the kitchen are - I am not in recovery just now and I do not feel better.
I feel a bit rubbish - but never mind.
There are books, there are magazines and there are films - I have 3 or 4 books on the same topic -and I have 3 or 4 copies of the same book.
For example -
The Importance of Being Earnest 2 copies
Mrs Dalloway - 2 copies (and a film)
I can make you thin (4 copies) -what ever happened there?
and all manner of self help books like CoulditbestressOutwittingStressStressandYouYouandStressDepressionYourQuestionsAnsweredOvercomingDepressionDepressionStoriesHerbalStressControlAmIdepressedAreYouDepressedItCouldBetheBlues…..
and The Compassionate Mind by Paul Gilbert...
So this week ---piles of books---it is you and me...in the ring
But also some of these books have been really helpful - like 'When words are not enough' that discusses mental health medication and how it helps.
Then there is The Woman who went to bed for a year (if only) by Sue Townsend
and The Queen and I by Sue Townsend.
writing here is surely going to help me...and when I am exhausted I can do a bit of writing from the comfort of my bed using my phone.
I hope I can amuse or even be of help to anyone who comes across this post,
thank you, thank you,
Miss Better in Recovery (B for short)
