Thanks to Ashley over at
for nominating anyone who wants to do this challenge to give it a try.
Today on the last day of the challenge, my quote is from the one and only eeyore, who is one of my favourite cartoon characters.
“The nicest thing about the rain is that it always stops. Eventually.”
~ (Eeyore), A.A. Milne
Isnt that beautiful? I thought so.
I nominate anyone who wants to try this challenge out, to give it a go! You’ll be glad you did!
has set in. I just feel so defeated.
I really cant deal. I am so overwhelmed. I really cant wait until tomorrow to see dr. barry. I need the apt. I need to talk this out. If I can, that is.
I am also seeing my OT mark tomorrow morning. I used to see him once a month. but since I started the ILS course we don’t see each other much. But he’s always only a phone call away.
Tomorrow will be our first apt in a while. Its just a general catch up.
I just feel so blah tonight. Everything feels like its going in slow motion. I feel very sluggish and slowed down. I don’t feel like doing anything. I need to shower for tomorrow. I put the hot water on but I don’t feel like getting in the shower. I just want to curl up and hide.
I will shower later on because I know its the right things to do so I don’t smell bad. I don’t want to go to see dr. barry and smell bad and look dirty because I didn’t shower.
I’m just on a bit of a downward spiral. And I cant seem to pull myself out of it.
so much for having a week off. If I knew it was going to be this bad I wouldn’t have wanted a week off. I hate when my mood is so bad. It is just so all consuming.
I decided on Thursday I will go to the basement club. I haven gone there since I started on the ILS course. They will think I don’t want to come in any more. Truth is though I haven’t had time. I haven’t had any time off to just go there and call in to see everyone. I am looking forward to doing tha tthis Thursday and possibly Friday too.
i’m really struggling this morning. i’m struggling to stay upbeat and positive.
I feel so depressed. I cant seem to shake it. my mood just feels very low.
I will still go volunteering, I’m hoping getting out of the house and meeting other people will lift my mood and that going there will also make me feel good about myself.
Even the fact that the weather is nice outside and the birds are singing outside my windows isn’t even cheering me up.
Nothing is doing it for me. I just feel so blah.
I’m due my 3 monthly injection tomorrow. I’m glad I’ll be getting it. I always know when its close to time to get it. My mood always dips.
Anyway. Hoping I can turn the day around. We shall see.
well its 4 AM. I’m not asleep as you can see.
I tried but couldn’t drop off. So got up again, no point to lying there thinking a million thoughts and unable to shut your brain up or off.
So I am up. I am just pottering around the house, and pottering around online.
I have the radio on low. And its very peaceful. Not a sound to be heard.
Just how I like it. Nitros fast asleep. He was dreaming in his sleep. He was whimpering, I think its so cute when he does that.
Is anyone else up?
Talk to me if you are?
so you all know I volunteer on Tuesday at the cork city partnership, this is an organisation that works with vulnerable, and elderly people, and people living in disadvantaged areas.
Last week my supervisor said she had two blind people, who needed training in how to use their laptop and I phone.
she asked me if I’d be interested in doing it since I am blind myself, and could give them first hand experience.
so I jumped at the chance.
Well tomorrow I start the job. One of the girls who just got a new laptop will come to me from 2:30 until 4:30. I am excited. But nervous too.
Will I be a good teacher? Will she like my style?
She already knows me. I know her boyfriend, he teaches at a local centre for the blind near where I live.
Well I hope she’ll enjoy it and get a lot out of what I try to help her with learning.
And hoping I get and gain a lot out of it too.
At least I have patience and don’t mind going over things…that helps, right?
Goals for today, not many. If I can get these done I’ll be happy.
