    Spoke to GP. I’d been talking myself out of it for weeks but finally did it. She’s increased my meds and told me to phone again in a few weeks for possible referral back to CMHT.

    Well done @independent_, that's amazing and not easy to have that conversation at all. <3
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Managed to go to work today and handled the busy work environment much better than I thought, despite being freaking anxious.

    Contacted Winston's Wish for support with the bereavement that is bothering me.

    Not specifically today but I've had a very busy week getting things sorted out so I could get a new car, the whole process was a nightmare but getting it all sorted has me very proud of myself! :blush:

    Right! Decided to revisit Tumblr after a very long time, and edited my blog appearance using HTML codes.
    I know next to nothing about HTML codes but I've picked up a few things along the way! :3
    Took ages but we got there.

    Hoovered. Dusted. Loads and loads of tidying and sorting cupboards out.

    Still got a bit to do but think I can fill tomorrow with that

    Just a little thing but I managed to save a mouse from the clutches of one of our cats and let it free in the field behind our garden. It didn't look injured or anything either so hopefully it's gonna be okay. =)

    Put up a fight today. Been struggling with self harm urges but really am fighting to make it another day harm free. Currently winning

    Brushed my hair today. I hadn't brushed it since Sunday and I have to go to school tomorrow for a covid test (as long as it is a negative test then I go back on Tuesday.)

    Putting myself first for a couple hours. I don't give a shit if anyone gets upset or offended by that. I'm struggling too so time for some self care.

    Today we spent less than £10 in the shop, which is really helpful since we only had £10 cash until SAAS comes in next week.

    My advocate got us food from the foodbank and I'm proud that I'm not ashamed to admit that I needed help.

    Finding work has been a nightmare and we had absolutely no income over the summer months, no parental support from mine or my partners parents and all our savings is down the drain but we survived summer.

    I'm proud that today we've jumped over one of the last hurdles before we next get paid :smiley:

    I admitted to my English teacher that I struggle with doing language analysis in any PQE (Point, Quote, Explain) paragraphs that we have to do in class (it really impacts my grades) and she said that she will try and help me. It was after she had a look at the PQE paragraph that I did today during English.
