Mixed day so far, so a 5. Going to a Samaritans meeting tonight, about the possibility of volunteering. Not sure what the timescale would be, maybe I'm not ready yet, but it's something I'd really

That really is amazing, Cindy. To use your experiences and your obvious compassion and empathy to help other people (besides just helping us!) is so wonderful. You are ready, even if you aren't sure.

What are the Samaritans? Is that related to the Bible story? I'm sure you're good in that!!

They're mostly a massive charity based phone line for people who need help. They probably do other stuff but I don't know that.

If youre not ready, theyll probably train you, and, as in all things we do often enough, we develop over time.

Feeling quite confident today despite being behind with a lot of things at work. Still feels strange to feel this way. Leaving work on time tonight to go to a talk with my neighbor/friend

Really struggling today. Feeling tearful though not in sense of being able to cry. Didn't make it in to work. Slept a lot again. Been thinking about stuff a couple of people I work with said - and

of course, overthinking. Important lesson, though: it is up to me to manage my feelings, and there are going to be days when I revert to my old habits. Just because job is going well doesn't mean 'Doubting Cindy' is gone.Still question myself, and

Tough to compete against yourself with your thoughts...to always be fighting those doubts and self-destructive feelings. I know how that is. But just knowing it, I think, is good! I hope you manage and are doing better today!

Got back to my flat late afternoon, after nice lie-in and conversation. Spent evening with my neighbour/friend, felt sad that it felt like an obligation and after an hour or so wanted him to leave.
Cindy M
23 Oct 2017 ·

Didn't say that, though, and he didn't offer to leave, obviously wanted to stay and talk, which made me feel worse. He left around 10.30, which was quite late for me as next day was working day and I need to be up quite early (he does know that).

Cindy M
23 Oct 2017 ·

Annoyed with myself for being irritated by it all, because I should have just said - I did give him some time, and we are meeting up at an event later this week.
