Pardon the interruption…

Yesterday was crap, no two ways about it. From all the joy and fun of the summer so far to a crash to the bottom. But that’s the beauty of living with a mental illness. Ups and downs, like rolling hills in the countryside. Today, an improvement. Yesterday I didn’t even want to go out of the front door and do anything. Shut myself away and let this interruption to the well being pass. And it has. Despite the cricket being cancelled, I’ve ventured out for a spot of lunch and getting that fresh air (such as it is) back into the lungs. Another steaming day outside. The good, positive me has returned. I’m learning to deal with the short, sharp crashes to earth. Learning to pick myself up, dust myself down and start all over again, as the song goes.A reasonable week coming up with cricket, volunteering, football and Peer Support being the main activities of choice. And I will be there for each of them. Back from that resounding thud of yesterday.A.S.D Brooks
