Making my mental health a priority

I havent dropped into the basement club in a while. For newer followers, the basement club is a drop in centre for people with mental illnesses that I used to go to a lot. Recently though I feel I’ve been neglecting my mental health. I’ve been making other things my priority. I’m going to change that this next week, though. I’m going to make it a priority to go in there 3 days next week, the centre is closed on monday and tuesday, but on wednesday, thursday and friday I am going to go in. No more putting it off in place of other things. Its time to look after my wellbeing. Being in there makes me feel good. I feel accepted. I feel like its a place where I fit in and where I belong. I feel supported when I am in there and it makes me feel good about myself too as I am being a support to others who go in there.
some big changes have happened and I feel I need to be part of those and if I dont go in then I am not part of them and I wont know what is going on in there.
Luckily there is one friend who updates me via email, and I do get texts from them too, but its not the same as going in there and seeing first hand what is going on.
So off in I will go on wednesday after my apt with dr. barry.
