Enjoy your day tomorrow. Being alone with your cat will do you good!
I hope you really enjoy your alone time tomorrow!! Some me-time is very importantly!!
Sounds good, John 😊
I don't feel as good now. I'm just doubting myself. I'm really tired.
Without doubt there is no certainty, so I'm happy to have both.
Hope you get good rest tonight. Always good to sleep without pharmaceutical help if possible.
Congrats! You earned a good rest
Well done! Love your perseverance and determination!!
Good job. That s inspiring
Heat packs heat packs dirt heat packs!
Speckled Wood butterflies are everywhere in this part of Sheffield over the last few days.
Yay for butterflies!
Oh, poor baby. I can relate, been ill lately, too. We'll get through it! Many hugs
I thought carbs provided fuel...unless you're eating wrong kinds, e.g. cakes.
Carbs carbs carbs I want some caaaarbs!
Carbs are ok if you are already fit. I'm a want to be low carb until I get to a weight I'm happy with.
*grammar and words in general
Good one, John!
Applauding both your poetry and choredoing magnificence. I should be doing stuff, too.
Thank god tomorrow's a new day for household chores! :D
Lydia, O joy! The delights a new dawn brings. The day refreshed and wonder springs. Opportunity beckons hope and love. To all who seek the peace of a dove. So much glory to be had. Instead chores and work will make me mad.
Thanks for the huge and everything, everyone!
*thanks for the huge amount of hugs
Any progress is great progress! I believe in u and great jb doing what you've done so far!
Also, I had a 10 - 20 second loss of reality earlier today, and tried to shrug it off, hope it's just a drug related flashback and nothing more.
We're proud of you xx
I've got Amazon Prime, barely use it, going to watch a film so I can get my money's worth.
Just watched Brazil, it was a good film indeed.
Congratulations on completing week 1! I've never seen Brazil ; must give it a go sometime, it does sound interesting.
I've seen Brazil a long time ago, I only remember it'd left a very strong impression on me.
Well done on completing week one. You must feel great. That's awesome!
I've cut down on sugars and food in general too, but I managed to make the scales go higher when I weighed myself earlier. I hope it's just formation of some leg muscles I need for the running...
Yeah, we have been making big changes to our diet. I just have to find the motivation to exercise. Any tips?
http://bit.ly/Exercise5k This app made all the difference, but it's UK only, but you can get around that: https://www.androidpit.com/how-to-install-incompatible-apps-or-region-restricted-apps-on-android (apple workaround is different)
Yeah, I need Apple. Thanks though! I'm glad you found something that works for you.
Wonderful! Are you going to colour it?
I'm colourblind, so absolutely not! ^_^
I love it!! You are very much into small details, houses, mountains, apples, a coffeeshop in a rock. Do you live near Nasa? There is a is a spaceship ready to be launched.
Don't overdo the exercise! I usually start things with lots of enthusiasm, doing it several times a week, only to find out i can sustain that, so in the end I just quit completely.. better start a bit easy, till you get into the rhythm and increase
Don't worry! I definitely won't overdo the exercise! I don't think I'm capable of it, and being on anti-psychotics at the same time.
You can do it! Exercise is the best way to feel good naturally!
Then it is okay!! You go for it and before you know it, we will be cheering you on for a 5km, marathon or 50 miles race!! Proud of you!!
Congratulations! I did a Maybe-I'll-runToCouch 1m walk.
1 metre or 1 mile, Love? You're strength and meditation workouts will give you a base in terms of spending energy and controlling breathing.
I went on a second run of the day, now I'm wheezing a bit and coughing. I maybe shouldn't have done that, but I just wanted to get more prepared for next week.
I think it might be exercise related asthma. Although I'm sure I wasn't affected pre-clozapine. That medication almost destroyed my breathing and swallowing reflex.
1 meter from thought about running to strenuous walk to couch. hehe
Week 9 is 30 minute run.
Always wanted to try a fitness app like that. I might give it a whirl. 🏃🏽♀️😌
Well you have something to look forward to in week 9! But good for you! Keep us posted about the app and I might join you at some point
Great, I always wanted to try one of those apps too... but I hate running... :)
I have used one before - I suspect the voice of Michael Johnson could make me do anything. Hee hee. He 's quite inspirational and amazing. And scary. Very scary.
I love his commentary on the athletics on tv. His pronunciation of the word 'baton' is hilarious to me!
It's called One You Couch To 5k by Public Health England. It's totally free so don't do a paid one!
Hey John, I'm making an animation about depression for a competition and I was thinking of using your track “Mellow Sleepytime” for it. I just want to know if I have your permission :) your name will be in the credits as well
Yes! Of course!
Send me a link when the animation is done and I can provide a 'scored' version of the track especially to fit the animation. I still have the project file so it will be simply moving the different sections of music around to fit what's going on.
DM @jwtownshend on Instagram when you're ready so I can work on it ASAP when needed.
That would be great :) thank you so much
I'm ok, just feeling signs of brain functioning erratically, and a slight general melancholic feeling. I've made plans for another big walk next week, it'll be nice to get out by myself again. I just wish I could stop myself from some stupid,
unnecessary comments to a number of people. I have short times of giddiness and I just want to be quiet during them, but can't keep myself under control.
I have that problem too. Sometimes I'm just so happy to be around people I can't stay quiet, and I always regret being the fool after...
Howdy John! Just dropping by to say “hi” from another fellow schizoaffective warrior. Sending positive vibes your way
Thanks Herbie, 🌿🍂🍃🍵
