Planning to make myself well again
Over the past few years I've pushed myself far too hard and my health (both physical and mental) has taken a beating. I'm waiting to see a specialist for my physical health problems and I'm high up the list to be seen by a therapist. I've not really had the opportunity to properly look after myself and focus on what I can do to make myself feel better. I've now got the next month or more to really focus on making myself better but I'm not too sure of where to start. I have mountains of self help books and a occasional support worker who I don't see very often, but it's a very big issue to tackle and I don't really know which angle to go for first. Lots of people have been telling me that I need to have some kind of structure in my life, which I agree with but do I write a plan do I just set alarms? Any ideas about how to go forward with this? I've spoken to my doctor and he just tells me to " take it easy" whatever that means!?
