Trip to my state's capital to go to a specialty grocery store & burger place for lunch. Hope the store isn't crowded. It's always stressful because it's a small building. Trying to remain positive.

I keep forgetting to update. When I try and keep moving I feel pretty good, so that's what I try to do. The paln for today is: a run, a shower after, pharmacy visit, groceries, then going to Inga's

I'm very grateful for a lesson I have recieved last year. It is this: mentally ill or not, we still have a choice to make about how we see our lives. One can strive to be positive or not. Just trying

can make a huge difference. It has for me. I've never felt so good in my life. I'm not crazy happy like a manic person, it is a calmer and quieter type of happy that can last as long as I find it in myself to get over the bad days as fast as I can.

Common sense. Or maybe it's uncommon sense...
32x32

Yeah, John T's the one who's put me on this path. When 'think positive' comes out of the mouth of a person who knows the struggle with mental illness it's very effective.

I don't think I am, Alicia. I can barely control what I do, let alone anyone else... Give yourself some credit and give my ego and paranoia a rest. Still, I truly appreciate the sentiment you are very sweet. *Hugs*

Wrote in my diary this morning. Then replied to some comments on here. Trying to work out feelings about my parents (still) and relationships with friends. I had a dream about my Grandma who recently

passed away. I thought I had written it out somewhere but I can't' find it now. I want to find it if I can because I want to remember it. It was a very powerful dream and offered me a great sense of closure. :) . . . Work going better than it was a

couple of months ago, feeling much more comfortable socialising and even desire social contact/going out again (rather than just bearing it/being more tolerant) which is great! Probably need to work on self care a bit more - had takeaway most of this

week. Need to sort out some ear plugs as construction work has been bothering me. Even now I can hear the neighbour's TV and traffic outside. I was trying to sit in the front room for some quiet as landlord went back to bed but sometimes it feels
32x32
Keeping Track A · 3d
like I can never get any peace and quiet and that proper privacy is very rare too. Have been remembering medication this week which is good. Still have some aches and pains, moments of hot flushes/nausea/acid reflux which is a little concerning. . .

Overall, things are better than they were 3 months ago. The school year is quickly flying by, I am under pressure to finish the course or catch up a bit even with non-exam years but the great thing is I feel like I CAN do it. I feel much more

confident teaching the class, I feel more control and I put the foot down with ceertain students who were continuing to act out so my classes are strating to realise that I expect basic respect and manners from them. It has made my job much easier,

Mood rating of 4 due to tiredness and a feeling of loneliness, being stuck on the treadmill, no desire to do self care like cook for myself and feeling like I'm constantly running and always still feeling behind. But in quite a good place. If I was

. . . Yes, I found the record of my Grandma's dream! I had actually recorded it on my phone which I wouldn't usually do but it's good to know where it is! I guess I wanted to quickly record it before I left for work!

I had a midterm break a couple of weeks ago - one week off but my Grandma had passed away the Thurs. night previous to that so I spent the time helping with funeral preparations and with family time. The last couple of days I spent doing schoolwork.

Then we had Monday 18th off for St. Patrick's Day but I was at a wedding (which involved a long return trip)! So that was all go, go, go! Easter Break - two weeks' off is coming up next. I will have a wedding that first weekend too but at least I
32x32

will have time off to recover. Most likely, I will need to spend time prepping teaching resources and holding extra classes over the Easter break. I was out sick for a significant period before Xmas, I went too slow through the course when I WAS at
32x32
Keeping Track A · 3d
in attendance so now I have to make sure we cover the course before the exams in June. There are only a few teaching weeks left this term as there will be vaious activities and events and the 2 weeks off at Easter. The school did not hire a

substitute teacher while I was out so I am under pressure from parents and a little from management, to make sure I finish the course! So, very fast paced at the moment! But I am managing to keep my head above water! :) Breaks have not really been
32x32

breaks so far. A break from school, yes, but not really a break from work. And even the last weekend with the wedding - was more stressful tryign to make sure I got there on time and remembered everything and then social anxiety. So it wasn't very
