Over the Christmas and New Year period I read ‘We are all completely beside ourselves’. I had intended to read a few books while Paul was on holidays and I had more time to read. However this book tripped me up and I haven’t been able to pick up a book since finishing it nearly two weeks ago. So I need to write about it obviously.
Last week I shared with you my goals for 2015. I’m also breaking these down further each month, reassessing where I need to be and of course learning what is achievable. That’s the great thing about goals, they don’t have to stagnant.
Before I start this post, I must say that I don’t have any health qualification. Everything that I say in the following post is my own opinion based on the observations of my own weight struggles.
One of the constants during my mental health treatment has been that I am not my illness. I HAVE depression, I am not depression. It helps to realise that we have an identity outside our mental illness. However that doesn’t really work for obesity. It’s not something that I have, it’s something that I am.
If you do any kind of writing, whether it be for work or pleasure, then no doubt you have come against writers block once or twice. There have been a few times for me over the last 3 years where I have sat and stared at the screen, the cursor seeming to mock me, willing the words to come. Once I have started, the words flowed so I want to share with you the things I do when writer’s block has come to stay.
Last week I read this post by Dorothy (she’s really writing some awesome stuff at the moment!) on Anger. It really hit home with me because anger has become my default emotion recently. It used to simmer under the surface, now it bursts out before I can get a handle on it.
