My Positive Perspective on My Journey

A POSITIVE UPDATE ON MY RECOVERY

Its been a few months now since I have written anything as at the time I was revisiting areas which require more input from counselling which I am still awaiting.  An update since my previous stories I have come a long way in my recovery and getting stronger ever day.  Obviously it has been difficult at times and with the right input from appropriate professionals I am beginning to get more confident with who I am and not blame myself for what happened.  I am proud of myself looking back at the hurdles I had to overcome which many times I did not think I would ever overcome.  I enrolled for a course "Understanding Mental Health" to do online whilst I am off work and although I havent studied properly for man years I am enjoying the course as it is giving me a better insight into my own mental health condition together with understanding many other aspects of mental health.  Therefore I am feeling happier within myself and gaining my confidence back resulting in me being in a better place mentally.  My pysical well being is what I am dealing with now and all going well this should be all sorted and hopefully get back to work after one attempt at going back when I wasnt ready.  Overall I am feeling more positive and trying to keep fit by walking and hopefully when fitter going to the gym and trying aqua aerobics.  Might even try to learn to swim again and get over my fear of water.  In my future I want to look back as this blip in my mental health as a learning curve as one of my biggest fears was to end back in Hospital which I managed to stop happening.
