Keeping Up

I enjoy that this is a website i don't need to come onto every day, or even every week or month. I visit Write to Recovery website two or three times a year and it is such a handy resource for me to have when i feel i have exhausted a lot of other avenues during a particularly bad spell. The thing is i am not really having an overly bad spell. I am actually coping better than i thought i was. 

I have 5 weeks left at college and i was worrying about having all the work done in time and i spent the second week of my easter break worrying about finishing however at college last week we went through some assessments and i have managed to complete 3 nearly 4 assessments over the weekend. I am up to date and ahead of the game by at least 1 week. Now is not the time to relax though, i need to get the rest of the assessments finished plus i need to get the results back for the assessments i have already done. 

I can't wait until the end of June where i will celebrate my birthday, the end of college and my wedding anniversary by going on holiday for 5 days. It can't come quick enough and i just want it to hurry up and get here. I am in desparate need of the holiday. 

On another note i am nearly 6 months into my employment. This has been the first job i have had since 2009 and i have been through hell in the last decade regarding my mental health, but i have also been through so much recovery and self management workshops that have helped me to get the job i now have. It might only be 1 day per week but it is enough for me just now. I may get more hours later on in the year. Fingers crossed.

Thank you Write to Recovery for always being there for me to ramble and just clear my thoughts.
