Blog share!

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.

Hanging out with my friend

So i am at my friends house. I got here a little while ago. We aren’t doing anything special, just hanging out and chatting. It’s nice. I like spending time with her, its my friend Norma. She’s blind like me and she has mental health difficulties so we have a lot in common. We’ve been discussing books we’ve read recently, and we’ve also been chatting about our mentors, as she also has a mentor at the basement club, she goes there too like i do. I’ll stay here for about 3 hours I’d say. When i got here her pa was here and she made me a coffee, she makes a mean cup of coffee. 🙂 it was so cool that she did that for me. I got a taxi here, and the partnership where i volunteer for friendly call pays for the taxi’s to Norma’s house, as they consider me to be visiting her and its kinda part of what i do for them as she’s a client of friendly call also.

The book pimped

I’m reading a fantastic book at the moment, it’s called pimped and it’s by Samantha Owens. It’s a really really good read and I would highly recommend it.

It’s a non-fiction book, a memoir, a true life story.

The thing is this poor teenager had to go through our shocking, really shocking. But they are all to relate able to me some of them at least especially the sexual abuse. Since I was abused not in the same way but in a similar way. I mean I wasn’t pimped out to men, it wasn’t that sort of abuse, but I was raped and so I can relate to what she went through in that way.

If you’re not easily triggered, and you enjoy true stories, I would highly recommend this book to you.

It’s available on audible and probably in kindle format as well.

Shit mood

I feel so shitty right now. My mood is very bla. I feel very down. I am depressed. I just feel so awful. Its not cool. I am so done with this shit. I want to feel good!

I had a bath to see if that would help. It sorta did. I still feel crappy, though.

At least I am drinking a lot of water, and eating a lot of fruit, so I am being healthy atleast which feels good.

At least I am taking care of my body! Although I did have a very unhealthy lunch today, but I am pulling back now and being more mindful of what I put in my face.

I just wish this low mood would go away! I hate it!

At least I am remembering to take my meds!

I have remembered all week, win win to me!

I am trying my hardest, that will have to be enough! I cant do any more than that!

Mentoring apt this morning

I am seeing my mentor this morning. Its good to have that extra bit of support. I am not sure what our apt will be about yet. What we’ll discuss during it I mean. I am just going to go in with no agenda and see what happens.

I really like my mentor. She’s really nice. She’s very open about her own struggles with mental illness too which is nice as it means I can relate to her better. I am glad she’s not afraid to talk to me about her own history. That allows us to bond more I think.

I hope our apt today is good but I am pretty sure it will be.
