Managed to get myself to bed at a reasonable time last night, well before 2 am anyways. Slept ok-ish.
I even managed to get up this morning in time to eat, shower, dress and take foxy for a wee. I’ve been so lucky that the courses I am on are only a 5 min walk from me.
The 1st one was Basic counselling skills. Which was cool, we did a lot of role play, which was challenging, but good. It’s really hard to think of open ended questions. Small children are the best at open ended questions, but as we get older we learn closed ended questions and they are so much easier then open ended questions. But its all good practice. I need to study the basic model for counselling this week as next week we’ll be doing it without prompts, also have to remember to tell the client about confidentially, which I find easy as I have had so much counselling lol!
The 2nd was the last of the working with anxiety and panic. Today we were talking about stress and how it manifests itself physically. We also did a bit of role play, which was really good 🙂 But I’m glad its the last Friday of courses 10 am -4 pm.
Came home and sorted myself out, then took foxy girl out for a wee, I was too tired to take her any further then across the road. Just been chilling out this evening, talking to friends online and texting friends which has been nice 🙂
Got some great news, my friend L finally had her baby boy this evening 🙂 9lbs 6oz! both are doing really well despite a difficult pregnancy and birth. He is so so beautiful and perfect. He’s mixed race but is so white at the moment, but he will get his colour in the coming days. So welcome to the world Albert 🙂 I can’t wait to meet you.
Decided I am going to trade in/ or sell my WII U ( have a friend of a friend that is interested in it, but want it gone asap) I don’t play on it much and I really need to money so I can get Disney infinity the starter pack and figures and I should have money left over to get the 4 skylander figures I need. So yea cannot wait till the shops open. It’s nearly 2 am so doubt I’ll be up till nearly midday lol
Feeling less stressed about work, they have been so great! But I’m still depressed, struggling with simple day to day stuff like sleeping and eating properly. Still feeling depressed and the self harm thoughts are just driving me mad. Feeling pretty numb too… but not sure why! But I am at least keeping on top of my cleaning which is good and makes me feel better about myself. Self care is hard, but I am trying.
So later today will be filled with bill paying, getting the new game and possibly a bit of food shopping, but I might just get something easy to make just for Saturday and Sunday, so its not too overwhelming. I am also going to try and take foxy girl for a walk maybe Sunday. I don’t want to plan too much and overwhelm myself. Just going to take things small bits at a time.
