A bit of progress…..

Just a soupçon. A morsel. But progress it undoubtedly is.

What am I blathering on about? My mental and physical health, that’s what. I’ve been to see my CBT counsellor today and there was certainly some good bits to report. The weather is good, for starters. I’m not shivering under 12 sweaters like last February and March.

I’ve been feeling a bit better physically. Sleep has improved and I’m waking up with a little less fogginess and a bit more zest to get out of the flat on some days. I wouldn’t say that I’m skipping along the road with delight, but the enthusiasm seems to be getting there. Better sleep seems to be equating to better well being maybe?

I’ve been out a couple of days, once to the coast and once to a famous British racecourse. I’m enjoying the fresh air, the green space and some escapism from the problems that have bedevilled my existence for the last few months. I’m trying not to let things beat me. They’ll have a good go, but determination is more of a strong point with me nowadays.

So some progress and some positivity to report. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to speak in such terms. A bit more consistency is appearing now and those dark times during the last few months are starting to recede. Long may they stay in the recesses of my mind for some time.

Off now for some lunch. See ya.
