Hi. Didn’t have the best of sleeps last night and consequently I’ve been rather edgy and jittery today. In a bit of a daze as well, as though recent bad news is affecting me today.

I was contemplating not going into the Peer Support group. But I turned on the TV, had breakfast, and managed to cajole myself out of the door. We had a new person turn up today and the group went quite well, as a matter of fact. Going out is preferable when the brain is in a bit of a muddle, as mine is.

Sitting here having lunch, and the daze hasn’t gone really. Maybe a better night’s sleep tonight may improve things. I hate feeling like this. But I have a good reason for these feelings I suppose. A little bit of emptiness is the overriding emotion? It’s all been a turbulent ride this year so far.

Still, must carry on, must keep going, must do the things and meet the people that keep me well. If I don’t, well the consequences aren’t good. But I’ll get through this.
