Evening ramble

well guys despite a lot of anxiety earlier and a little bit of exhaustion I have had a pretty good and very relaxed evening. I ate a very healthy dinner of roast chicken, potatos, cauliflower, carrots and peas. It was a residents birthday and so there was ice cream and birthday cake, but I resisted it, I didnt have any, instead I had my fruit salad. I was gonna give in and have some, but then I thought about going to slimming world on wednesday, stepping on that scales and possibly not losing anything. I thought about how disappointed I’d be if that happened, and so I said no to the cake and ice cream. Everyone kept telling me how much will power I had to not eat it. I suppose its true I do have determination to be able to refuse it. After dinner when I went upstairs I called a friend whose feeling a little down at the moment, and I talked to her for a bit. Then I decided that I’d take a nice long hot shower. I was hoping that would settle me some as I could feel the anxious feelings rising up again. So I took a shower and I felt so good afterwords. I got this new shampoo and I used it tonight. Its amazing, and smells sooo good you could almost eat it if you didnt know better 🙂 its papaya and mango and man its just amazing! After my shower I lay down and I decided I’d read, and if I fell asleep then that would be ok because of therapy today, I’m always pretty exhausted after the session. I did fall asleep. That was around 7:30 PM and I just woke up at 9:15. I let nitro out to do his nightly thing, of course he was ignoring me and refusing to come in again. So I let him out a little bit longer and I had to just wait until he was ready. He takes his sweet time about it though lol 😛 anyway, he’s in now. I’m about to make some tea now and watch some tv for a while. The anxious feelings have gone for now, again. Thank goodness. I hope they wont come back later when its time to settle down.

“Feelings Don’t Try To Kill You…..”

Fighting for a Future


“Feelings don’t try to kill you, even the painful ones. Anxiety is a feeling grown too large. A feeling grown aggressive and dangerous. You’re responsible for its consequences, you’re responsible for treating it. But…you’re not responsible for causing it. You’re not morally at fault for it. No more than you would be for a tumor.”
