I was contacted and asked to share this blog so I am sharing it here today. The blogger writes the following about their site.
It’s a personal and honest site, using my experience to describe my coping techniques and trigger awareness methods. It’s not just about helping people now, it’s about saving them.
I am 1 3rd of the way through my assignment for college. I will get the second journal entry written later this afternoon, and if I feel up to it I may even finish it this evening, it all depends on how tired I feel though, so now that I am 1 3rd of the way there, it means I can actually go into work today, and not be stressing out about getting my work done!
Yay, so glad about that!
I love it when my stress level is down!
Good morning and happy tuesday!
I hope your all having a lovely start to your day, or if it is night time where you are then I hope you had a very nice day!
I am wide awake. I woke up at 3 AM. I couldnt go back to sleep, so I have been watching tv and listening to the radio. And drinking diet coke.
My relief PA gets here at 9 AM. Its her last day working with me today. And I will be so glad to have my other PA back!
I missed her! Its funny how you get used to working with one particular person, isnt it?
Anyway not much on the agenda today, except to get my assignment for college done and handed in! I need to just sit down for a few hours and tackle it. I never got to it at the weekend, so I need to do it today as it is due in on friday!
Heres hoping! I am not in the mood but I know once I sit down to do it the words will just flow. At least I hope they will. Its journal style entries, so once I can gather my thoughts to write, that will be good.
I am meant to be going volunteering too today. I am not sure if I will go in yet though. If I can get the college work done this morning, then I will go in!
Anyway do let me know in the comments what is on your agenda today!
Have a nice tuesday all!
I have so much I wanna say. I cant. I am lost for words.
My chest is tight my stomach hurts.
I feel clammy, sick, sweaty.
I am losing my shit. I wanna talk but I cant. I need to. I just cant though.
Everything is wrong. So much going on. I just need someone to hear me. Hear what I am not saying…
Dr. Tonya at salted caramel blog nominated me for a blogger recognition award!

- Nominate 10-15 other bloggers for this award, and inform them of their nomination.
How my blog started…well, I wanted to raise awareness of mental health, especially of dissociative identity disorder, which is my primary diagnosis. My blog also focuses on therapy and on my psychotherapy sessions. But over time it has evolved and now includes daily living, recipes, quotes, etc. I had an old blog under another name but I deleted it and restarted using this one about 5 years ago.
My two pieces of advice would be to be real, and honest. Write from the heart. And write what you know! Oh and write often and be engaging! Respond to comments! Ok thats way more than two pieces, lol!
And I nominate the following bloggers for this award!
trina of its good to be crazy sometimes

Enjoy and have fun!
So I’ve started to be serious about exercising. I have a treadmill, and I need to start using it regularly.
So today I decided, I will make a start. I got on the treadmill twice. I did 10 minutes at a time. I also have an apple watch, and I am able to track my time and distance and speed on it.
I am happy with the result. I feel brilliant and I am impressed with the speed I was able to go at.
If I can keep this trend up, maybe I can really tone up my body. Plus I’ll become super fit. I wont do 7 days a week on it, but I intend to do at least 5 days a week on the treadmill. I will take a break at the weekends as I am not home usually on weekends.
They say it takes 21 days for a habit to form. I hope I can make this a permanent thing and form a new habit of using it regularly.
It is difficult to live in and enjoy the moment when you are thinking about the past or worrying about the future. You cannot change your past, but you can ruin the present by worrying about your future. Learn from the past, plan for the future. The more you live in and enjoy the present moment, the happier you will be.
