Hi guys,

Thanks to the people who've mentioned me while I've been off the board.

Just to let you know, I'm doing really well at the moment. After getting through the SSRI withdrawal my anxiety is much lower than it's ever been off meds. I'm feeling more confident and because of that have been offered some more interesting stuff at work plus a pay rise, and I'm even managing to be more assertive with my parents when they start trying to convert me to all their insecurities and hang ups. Even my psoriasis is starting to clear and I'm getting a consultation for a more effective treatment.

Anyway, I don't know why this has happened now or how long this will last but I'm treating it like a holiday and am right now sitting in a departure lounge at an airport about to visit friends in Berlin. I'm going to make sure I make new plans so I always have something to look forward to, so think I'll go to Bath for a couple of days next month too.

Once I feel like my mood is definitely stabilised I'll start coming back to the board to offer support but I'm aware that it's such early days I could easily get triggered and start spiralling again, so I think I'll need to be away from the board for a bit longer.

I'm thinking about all of you though, and I know that some of you are going through a rough time. Of course I hope you'll be happy for me, but mostly I hope you'll keep looking after yourselves xxxxx
