Hey Deb!

Thanks for thinking of me. I don't use this forum so often so I'm sorry I've been a tad quiet.

How have you been?

Ups and downs my end but less downs at last. Have been maintaining voluntary work for the first time in ages and selling my painted flower pots and preserves in local shops and fetes. I'm also actively looking for part time non-food related work and have had some trial shifts and interviews. I have my last CBT session for depression tomorrow and start CBT for the anorexia twice weekly next week. Also have a little break booked to Malta in three weeks and have been enjoying spending time regularly with my little nieces and nephews.

Things are still a bit tough at home. A lot of tension. Sooner I start earning, the sooner I can move out and be my crazy self without the pressure, fear and worry of upsetting my parents.

Let me know what's new with you. You can write back on my old thread if you like.

I don't want to crash aatmp's thread, hehe!

Much love to you both

Em xxx

Hi Em

I'm glad your downs aren't. as often. Good for you with your voluntary work and selling your stuff.

I had about ten good weeks. It's up and down again now. I'm working on mindfulness with a teeny bit of success.

Perhaps the forum doesn't suit your needs now. I'm glad to hear you're coping though.

You will get to move eventually. I'm sure.

Take care
Deb x

Hi mate.

It was a good game! I'm ok. Meds are doing a job for me. Not a cure but feel so much better.
Not posted here for a bit because nothing to say. Not got anything to contribute to new posters either.
How're things with you?

Yeah. Be happy to play. There are peeps I miss too. Em is doing really well, all things considered and Amaya seems to be enjoying life at the moment so I am happy for them. I hope Natalie is OK. Her posts were always good to see, warm hearted and strong with bags of common sense.

Yeah, I chat to them when I can. Because this site doesn't have messaging, I set up a dedicated email ages ago, andthistoomustpass at gmail dot com.I don't check it everyday but I trade messages with Em, Amaya and one or two others.

Hi guys,

ATTMP and Sir Hugo

Firstly awwwww bless you both for your nice comments and secondly

sir Hugo...less of the old..I'll have you know I'd beat you speed walking anyday :D

I literally came on and have been searching for my old, ooops I mean fellow virtual mates to see who's still using the site,,and hence found the most recent posts,,

How are you doing? Glad Medes making things easier.
Yes please a new game, I'm up for playing.

I disappeared for few months felt quite low Dec and January as you both know, but pushed through and started to get some support and less pressure from people around me, did mediation with my daughters father, and basically told him he's causing aLot of stress so back off from me (actually went to solicitors to get injunction based on emotional harassment, that's when he new I was serious) and just keep it strictly routine regarding my our daughter. I had the same mediation with my father who is quite toxic I began to realise, and once I found the triggers in people I was able to back off and then figure out positive ways to move forward, and just focus on the internal issues I faced and the social issues (housing , poverty etc) it was slow but by may I moved into my new home with the kids, been such a beautiful two months, got wifi connected recently so I'll have access regularly) still have anxieties as every one does etc, but no longer triggered by people disrespecting or crossing over my personal boundaries. Not on any antidepressants, although at times I feel maybe I should just to stay level and not feeling the need to drink.. I've been really working on myself and decided to stop being hard on myself...surprisingly that Sh@t works :P :D , never stopped thinking about you guys though and the support yiu gave in those really dark dark days was unmeasurable.Thankyou.

Anyway I don't want to do my usually million word posts and bore you, but Sur Hugo let's get started on a game, I'm your second guinea pig.
