I missed last month’s catch-up because I
had loads of important things to do couldn’t be arsed. Sorry! To be fair though, it’s been a bit manic in our house for a while and things are only just winding down. Hence why I’ve only just had the chance to sit down and catch you all up!
I’ve been pretty quiet on social media over the past month as house renovations have taken over our lives. The house is currently in chaos which makes my brain feel like chaos. Does anyone else ever feel like that? In amongst the chaos, there were some good moments. I thought I’d sit down to write a quick catch-up post 🙂
And just like that, April ended and May began! April was lovely as J and I had some annual leave which we spent really productively doing projects round the house. I also treated myself to a couple of new things!
Hello! Happy belated new year everyone!! 2020 is finally over and although 2021 still remains pretty uncertain, at least we can hope for a better year, right??
So October is over and we’re now into November! October was a pretty good month for me as my anxiety has been pretty quiet; I think going on loads of walks helped (although I’m not a fan of the rainy weather.)
August is always a good month, there’s usually loads of warm sunny days, I take a couple of weeks off and it’s also my birthday!
July was a pretty good month overall 🙂 I’m still working from home, which has been lovely 🙂 Although lockdown restrictions have eased, we haven’t gone anywhere, apart from the supermarket for our weekly shop. I’m not really in a hurry to go anywhere, although I am missing IKEA!!
I’ve now been working at home for the past three months, which is longer than I was working in the office for!! It’s kind of become the new norm but it’s still been a bit of a struggle. I’ve now been referred for CBT therapy to help with my anxiety and I really hope it helps!! June hasn’t been all bad though; I’ve started going out for walks again and had loads of chats with my mum and dad which has really helped!!
The end of April/beginning of May didn’t exactly go particularly well for me. I was really struggling with anxiety so I ended up having to phone my GP and got put on Sertraline. The side effects made me feel pretty sick for the first week but luckily I started taking them over the bank holiday weekend (and I’d taken the Monday off which I was super grateful for) so I mostly sat on the sofa watching Murder, She Wrote! Thankfully I’m now starting to feel less sick and less anxious all the time.
Well, April was an absolute shit show, wasn’t it? I was ill at the end of March and then lockdown happened. Life completely changed overnight and, I’m not going to lie, some days have been an absolute struggle in terms of my anxiety. I’m trying to look at the positives though; my friends and family are all okay and I’m grateful that I can work from home.
I really hope that you’re all okay too and I’m sending you lots of love ❤️❤️
