I had a decent nights sleep

I made myself go to bed relatively early. I watched a documentary on tv after the 9 O’clock news. That was over by 10:30 and once it ended I went straight to bed. I didnt think I’d sleep but I surprised myself, I fell asleep almost straight away. I did wake a few times on and off, but overall I slept well. I only woke at around 4 AM. I decided then to get up. So now I am up but I feel a lot better than I did yesterday, the sleep must have did me good. I made a coffee and am drinking it now. It tastes like heaven. I am listening to the radio also. I heard an interview with the author Louise O’neill who wrote the book, asking for it. That was a good book, its about a girl who was raped, its fiction but its an irish author, and a great read. My PA frances will be here at 9 AM. I need to to to the pharmacy to drop off my prescription, and I also have to hand it into the doctors as the pharmacy can only dispense one week worth of it, after that you have to get the rest of it from your GP. I’ll be starting the clonadine tonight. Well I hope I will, I hope the pharmacy will have it in stock.


And I go on despite how I feel

I want to cry. I feel so awful. Will crying help? Who knows. I just feel intense sadness. Thank god for Nitro. Thank god for his cuddles. I badly need them right now. I really dont know what I’d do without him. I’d be lost. Lost in a sea of overwhelm. He calms me. He keeps me sane. He needs me. I cant fold. I have to be there for him. I have to look after him. If I didnt have him I’d curl up in bed and never come out. I’d just hide. I really feel like hiding right now. I am in so much emotional pain tonight. I just feel so down. Depressed. Anxious. Its neverending. Its a horrible way to feel. I wish it would go away. I’m going to make a cup of tea. Watch a little tv for distraction. Then maybe read, if I can concentrate on my book. Must remember to take my night meds. Must forget them. I’m trying to do better about taking them. Its an uphill battle. Wonder if I’ll sleep tonight. I never did fix my mac. I tried everything. I dont know how to fix it. May ask on facebook as I have a lot of blind friends on there. Perhaps one of them has a mac and can help me out. We’ll hope.

Making sense of psychiatric diagnosis by Ashley Peterson

Ashley who blogs at mental health home, has written an amazing book, and I thought I’d promote it for her!

I think its a must have for anyone dealing with a mental illness, or anyone who has a loved one who has a mental illness.

Here is a blurb about the book.

Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnosis: Understanding the DSM-5 covers the DSM-5 criteria for a variety of mental illnesses, including what’s involved in making a diagnosis, the symptom criteria for each diagnosis, and an explanation of what the various symptoms actually look like.

In order to give a clearer picture of what different psychiatric diagnoses are actually like to live with, the book includes first-hand accounts from people who have actually experienced each diagnosis.

With the fusion of diagnostic information, clinical experience, and lived experience, this book offers a unique, well-rounded perspective on the reality of mental illness.

Its available to buy in paperback from amazon, or on kindle, or for a cheaper price from Ashleys website, the link is below.

I’ve also attached the cover of the book to this post!

So go on, what are you waiting for, go out and buy this great book, it will make a great addition to your bookshelves.


Day at home

I’ve had a relatively quiet day. Did not do much today. Decided to just stay home and chill.

I did not sleep well at all last night, so caught up on some sleep in the afternoon, got about 3 hours. My friend Norma woke me up, she called me to check if I was ok, as we hadnt talked in a few days, and thats unlike us.

I’ve been just watching tv, judge judy, and some chat shows, and the news. I’ve also been reading and trying to finish up the cathy glass book, I have 1 hour 52 minutes of it left to read now.

I should finish it up tonight! I dont know what I will read next, but I’m not short on books to choose from thats for sure.


Quote of the day and my thoughts…

The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.
Alan Bennett

so true!

Sometimes I read and I go wow!I was thinking the same thing!

And I love when that happens!

Just knowing I am thinking along similar lines to someone else is really helpful at times!
