Well done Kiran. Getting lost can be extra stressful. Well done for sorting it out calmly. The conference sounds awesome. I hope you have lots of fun!

Sorry, I've only just seen this.

I'm not sure there is an adulting secret to be honest, its more been a realisation that I can't just ignore everything completely all the time. Knowing when to take a break when stuff gets too overwhelming and accepting help when I need it.

Thanks Jill and you're right Cat. I am also breaking the habit of a lifetime of burying my head in the sand and it does seem to work!

More Brighton planning occurred today.
Threw caution to the wind and managed to engage in a long conversation with a supervisor I had previously found quite awkward/difficult to talk to and now any awkwardness has vanished between us.

Yesterday I went to fertility clinic alone which included an invasive scan and also called the clinic's accounts department which at one point I never would have done in a million years.

Well done everyone great work :)

I made it safely through the weekend without self harm.
I made a budget which I'm attempting to stick to.
I helped a friend in need and stayed safe even though it triggered me.
I asked for help when I was struggling.



Given enough tea I could rule the world.

Well done Lillie, super proud of you! Great work yourself!

I've done my allocated mindfulness training three days in a row now! Trying to make it a habit.

Three times makes a habit, Kiran, so you're there already in theory! Mindfulness is so simple yet so hard somehow...I envy your efforts <3

Well done, Lillie. It sounds like you're working through some big things.

I joined my sister for her music therapy today and it was brilliant fun!

Jill I know exactly what you mean with mindfulness. I I find using the Headspace app good because it's just 10 minute sessions and you can timetable a reminder to do it every day to help it be easier to fit in to your life

Glad you fun today. Sounds like you and your sister are finding bits of happiness amidst the things that are going on. ALL the love.

Networked with lots of people at the conference and people seemed to like me.
One workshop facilitator told me my comments were really insightful and asked if we could keep in touch.

Well done with the swimming!

I have no doubt they loved you at the conference, Kiran.

I made it through work today and I think I did a good job and I held a handstand for about 15 seconds.

For switching my phones off for remainder of the day as I don't have the emotional or mental strength to deal with anything else at the moment. I need some space.

Saying to G that I won't be seeing him today or possibly tomorrow. I am sorry he he's pissed me off so many times and mentally/emotionally abuses me and makes me feel utter ****. (See post on forum)

Have you ever confused a dream with life? Or stolen something when you have the cash? Have you ever been blue? Or thought your train moving while sitting still? Maybe I was just crazy. Maybe it was the 60's. Or maybe I was just a girl... interrupted.
I know what it's like to want to die. How it hurts to smile. How you try to fit in but you can't. How you hurt yourself on the outside to try to kill the thing on the inside. I tried groups, didn't work out just made my depression a lot worse.

Well done guys!

Hope the new psychologist is helpful Jodes <3
Cat could you do your next hero entry with b because that would really please my mind!
Ellie, well done they do sound like really smart decisions that you made there.

I have marshalled myself to do some necessary things to day that for some reason I was blowing up out of all proportion.

Reminded myself that it's okay to be human and to cry and be sad. To show empathy is a beautiful way of acknowledging another's pain and I'm proud of myself for finally seeing it that way. It is not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength.



Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention. So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world awaits in darkness for the light that is you.

^ That is really beautifully said.

I went to a mental health social group type thing and was bricking it, ended up having a real laugh, holding my own in conversations in a way I haven't been able to in so so long, then going into a drinking environment, ordering a soft drink and genuinely not even noticing within a few minutes other people drinking alcohol (luckily person I was with was on soft drink as well, but this is the first time I've been in a full blown drinking environment since stopping drinking 3 and 1/2 months ago so for me big deal). And I still had fun and a laugh despite some anxiety. And I managed to navigate getting home safely wheelchair and all without falling into major anxiety night+male taxi driver+mobility etc. So yeah. *stops rambling*

^^ That is a brilliant achievement, well done! I'm glad you managed to have some fun despite the struggles too. You should feel very very proud. :)

Well done to all for recent achievements! This is a lovely thread to read, very inspiring.

Today I:

Have dropped a card in to say thank you to the police officers who had to get me medical help last week. Although I have no memory of what happened, I know I am covered in restraint bruises and am told I was very agitated and resistant. I am feeling so ashamed and guilty and I wanted to try to apologise. So it's a start.

I have also agreed to hand in the month's worth of medication I was discharged from hospital with but should not have been, and keep to weekly prescriptions, despite my head telling me to not say anything.

These are not sounding very positive, but they are steps.

Also I bought a white chocolate Toblerone so it feels like Christmas, and that must deserve Hero Points surely?
