I find cooking helps me too! The balance of physical and cognitive distraction coupled with the self care aspect to be effective. I find these qualities generally work well for me. What do you think it is about cooking that helps you? We can help with other things that might have those qualities too.

I think it's one of the few things i do that counts as self care.

The constable finally called back after months, he's gonna try and meet me next week, he's a very elusive man but understandable. I scared, but need closure, even though it no doubt will make me relive everything I just need to know that I tried.

And on top of that I have a horrible UTI and peed myself Infront of K, i mean she was so good about it and held me and took care of me when I sobbed. I keep on doing it, they're seeing if they can get me a gp appointment.

Feel horrible, and not sleeping. Just here to vent

That does all sound like a lot of horrible things to be going through. I hope you can get a GP appointment and get the UTI cleared up. I'm glad that K is supportive of you. Did you manage to get any sleep eventually? You are very brave speaking to the constable and I hope it does bring you closure. Is this something that K can support you with too?

I think it might have been ~15th September 2012 so yes!

With regards to cooking, 100% yes. I've never been able to explain why but cooking and eating my own food was a big part of ED recovery for me and I imagine at least some of that was about improving mood. Also we should exchange vegan recipes.

This is probably just silly but the anniversary is only coming up if you are following the Gregorian calendar. If you observe the Pawukon calendar, the anniversary already happened in July and you got through that day just fine.

I hope you get the UTI sorted, it sounds very nasty. Could you get some pads in the meantime to deal with leakages?



We’ll find a way to fight it, we always have.
It's not how tragically we suffer but how miraculously we live.

I met with the constable last week. He read my statement back to me, the unofficial one he took when I was sectioned. It was, was horrible, obviously. I thought maybe I overreacted, even tho most told me I wasn't. I cried. I had flashbacks or whatever they were, It was horrifying. I told him everything, I forgot that I did. I didn't leave a single detail out. Things got misunderstood, like the fact that I text my friend before, saying I had met someone and after that something bad happened. I've since deleted the messages. He said technically something bad happened two to three times. I was thought it was on and off but he counted as more than once. Don't know how to process it. Want to self harm but doing skills. Distracting by playing my uke and guitar obviously not a the same time. He's gonna bring him in for questioning even tho it was historic and my word against his. I just need closure you know?

With regard to the anniversary, I'll read up on it Jenna, but I'm going to spend a few days in the city with k, gonna go to ghetto golf, should be good. Just tired.

UTI is sorted.

Thanks guys ♥️

That sounds really emotional and distressing. Well done for managing that meeting. I really hope you do get some closure and soon. Look after yourself.

Thank you.

Ive been very low for some days now, everything's getting on top of me. Crying everyday. Some emotional and slight physical self harm. Nights are the worse for me. Don't know what to do.

Do you know what's making things so difficult, particularly the nights? Are you managing to do your cooking etc to try and get a bit of a break from things?

Yeah I'm cooking and baking which does help, oh and Jenna I've got a lot of vegan recipes to exchange. I'm going to try and sit with my thoughts tonight and just do some deep breathing. Thank you for replying.

Hey, did I recorded interview/statement with the police, have them all the info I could. I'm exhausted, emotionally and physically but that could be the anemia. I spend hours and hours obsessing about finding him first on social media, I thought if I saw his face, you kbow, I dont even know that I would think . His face has been a blur in the flashbacks and nightmares but I found someone who possibly could be guy, similar name and background and address. Obsessive. So I deleted Facebook. To try and give myself a break. I'm just tired and sad, and k my gf isn't doing so well and it's hard taking care of both of us, but she does the same. I'm scared and experiences are coming back but not as bad thank god, some voices but nothing too haunting. Sorry I'm tired just need to vent again

No wonder you are feeling exhausted. I'm glad you managed the interview, do you have to do anything more for now? Deleting Facebook sounds like a very sensible idea. I'm sorry both you and K are struggling right now, I'm glad you have each other but don't feel pressured to do all the looking after. Do you or K have other people who can also support you? You're welcome to vent here any time if it helps. Sending lots of good wishes.
