Had DBT skills group this morning, I had to DRAG myself out of bed and to the bus lol, but as the session got started I got more energised as I was able to bounce off everyone. The new girls were more chatty this week, which was great! At the end of group I was chatting with DR whitty, he’s a p-doc and he is also help to run the DBT skills group, any way we were chatting and he said I did well to sit for 4minutes to do the mindfulness this morning, and I asked if that will help with my concentration, he said yes, which is cool! He also said I may have a touch of A.D.H.D which threw me a bit as over here I thought it was only seen as a childhood illness… But hey things change all the time! So I am going to ask my p-doc about that at my next app, and maybe do some research into it. He said it’s because I fidget and move about loads, and I only concentrate for shot bursts at a time. Would explain a lot I suppose. Would like to hear others opinions…. 🙂
Other then that I haven’t done much today, just been looking after myself really. I came home, and chilled out watching family guy, I had a shower to freshen up, and I made myself dinner. I was going to go out again, but I was just too tired to be bothered really. I did however sat and wrote out my new “plan of action” to take to my next p-doc app, as on my care plans there my goals are old! and have changed somewhat.
This is my list.
Dyllan’s plan of action
Get level 2 English – Done
Get level 2 Maths – Still in progress exam 19th July
Continue with DBT skills group
Start and complete DBT
Look into doing a youth work degree at the open university – to start after DBT is finished
Look into and start voluntary work
Continue counselling with stepforward and work with M.R at the youth hostle (will know more about what I’m doing tomorrow when I see M.R)
Maybe start grievance counselling – Depending on how DBT goes and what they suggest/can offer me
Maybe start meds again to help stable out my moods.
Continue pulling bits together to start writing my own book
To move house
Good plan?! I expect it will change a tad.
So S moved into her new room today. I helped load up my mates car, I didn’t go as her gf is helping her the other end, plus I didn’t want to be home to late as I’m tired. Going to miss having someone else around keeping me company, it’s been real nice having her here.
Mentally doing ok today, got a bit manic and excited at group, I think that’s only because I had people to bounce off. Despite feeling ill I’m still feeling quite good!
Physically just ill, probably a viral infection and I’m sure I will need anti-biotic’s to get rid! so may need a trip to the docs this week.
