Aw bummer! I'm so disappointed for you! But there are others! You can get over this injury and get ready for the next one!
Oh, no! That is terrible news. So sorry to hear that, Esther. Remember to be proud of yourself for all the training you did! And rest up! xx
Always more races, Esther. Enjoy the nature and your friends company, this just means you'll come back stronger and faster next time!
Thanks John Cindy and Nixi. 🐼
And I know John but I've been preparing for this one for so long..
I have faith that you'll be able to do it, Esther! I'm 'rooting for you!
Do lots of good stretches...hope it will be ok for your race too! Have you run half marathons before?
Wholewheat pasta, wholemeal rice, frietjes! Keep the fuel levels high! Be sensible if you're injured, there's always another day. If you heal up, think of all the miles you've put in the last 12 months, smash it!
Hope your leg feels better soon. xx
No Jeff I haven't. Have been training for 21k. Running 3 times a week now. But it wasn't my leg apparently but my pelvis!
Ooo, exciting, Esther! I bet you'll do great! Do a lot of stretches for those sore muscles, and you'll get there.
Great time! You're faster than me!
Wow, way to go! :) That's awesome!!
Wow. Go girl
WHOA!! Way to go, Esther! That's incredible! xx
Great job! Happy to see you feeling good from a good run! I love that feeling after a good run... Keep it up!
Wow! I'd be dead after 10 minutes... ^^
Aw, Esther, I'm sure you won't end up alone. :(
🕵🏻♂️💷🧔🏻 Here you go barman, 2 pints please. 🧔🏻🍺🍺🕵🏻♂️ I've got a round in Esther. Cheers! 🕵🏻♂️🍻👩🏻. I've got to go to the opticians, using this magnifying glass is no substitute for glasses. Oh look, a cat 🐈. Keep trying Esther.
You'll get there.
Haha John you've made me laugh :)
I'm watching Ozark too! Season 2 is sooooo slow and dark. I loved Season 1, but this one, I feel like I'm struggling through it.
BF is dying for me to watch it with him. I'm not sure a dark show is good for me right now.
I've been falling asleep too Jeff. I just can't seem to focus on season 2. And Amanda I don't think it's dark in that kind of way. Its about money laundering.
Oh, ok, good then. Maybe I'll give it a shot soon. It'd make BF happy & maybe I'd actually enjoy it.
Wow! Just a few sips is great! I wish I could feel that. Glad you had such a good day. Hope today is even better! 😊
Thanks Manda and Pen! 🐼💕
Glad you had a good day! It's so nice to be able to recognize those nice days and remember them when things get hard again. And wow, just a few sips! Ha...cheap date! :)
I am Jeff! Fancy a date? 😋
Ha! Sure, I'll be right over. If I leave now and run there...wait, I'd have to swim. Bummer! ;)
Haha thats a pity John.i hate swimming
Hopefully tomorrow is a better day!
Maybe go to an lower league/semi pro/amateur match. Something about being stood out in the rain with a pint watching terrible players that is really soul stirring!
Sometimes you have to listen to your body and rest, and that's ok. Sometimes you have to tell your body to suck it up and get out and do things to recharge your mind/soul. Hard to tell when, though.
I can imagine John! Too bad I didn't go. It was a champions league game :(
The 3 - 0 win?? Yep... Definitely curse of hindsight! Don't blame yourself, just enjoy the 3 points.
It's good to take those breaks when you know you need them. Well done, Esther! xx
Yes John! I'm happy indeed. I will go to the next 2 games so will be fine :-)
Thanks Manda xo
How long ppl can wait until they get mental? What a lousy system. We have so much money in our country and healthcare system but we waste it on other things.
That is a horrible system. The people who need help the most right away aren't getting it. :( I'm sorry, Esther. I hope you have support to get you through the waiting...
Wow... Is there any way to have your insurance pay for private treatment in such cases? In Germany, this can be an option, if you can show that all officially covered psychologists are unavailable and you need help urgently.
I have been working with a clinical psychologist through Talkspace for a couple of months now... It is probably not the same as face to face therapy and may not be right for you, but I found it very helpful.
Thanks Tuxi. No if you want to be treated in a private clinic you have to pay it yourself unfortunately. From next week on I will have grouptherapy once a week though maybe that helps a bit.
That's a start. Hopefully, you'll get more support until the clinical therapy starts.
Hope you're feeling better by now, Esther. xx
This has nothing to do with other ppl charly
Don't feel discouraged about what people say or do. Just keep on living your life and forget them.
That sounds very sensible.
Good plan - hope the dr is helpful xx
Good to have a plan like that in motion. Hope you have settled into being home. Thinking of you, Esther. xx
I'm sure you will be at some point if you keep faith in yourself x
I do the same thing...want results NOW! But to be better for the long run, you have to work at it... I'm glad you are working at it!
Sometimes a rest can put thing in perspective. It is possible to put your effort into relaxing too, it can really pay off for your mood.
Please be safe sweet Esther and keep holding on. You will get better I am sure. Your Panda friends understand and are here for you anytime x
Really hope this will help you. Thinking of you! <3
We do understand, dear Esther - been to that horrible place. Glad you will be safe and hope you get help and support you need. Keeping you in my thoughts xx
Thinking of you, dear Esther. This'll turn out great for you. I know it! xx
I hope you're getting help, Esther, that they're able to give you ways to cope and get through these difficult days. Thinking of you a lot. I know there are people who care about you (like us!) and connect with you. You can do this...you're so strong
Thanks a lot for your hugs and comments. I'm sorry that I didn't reply in a decent way. I owe you xoxo
I hope the professionals are able to help you find ways to get through your days... I'm glad you're getting help right now. Rooting for you so hard, Esther!
Wow...that's horrible. I hope you have someone you can call to at least talk to, like family or a friend so you're not totally alone. Dogs are good company at least...hope you're ok, Esther!
Really sorry xx
Thanks. Apparently there was something wrong with their phone..
