Hi guys well Thursaday was an ok day 2 of my kids were home (no kindy on thurs), not a fantastic day but still a good day.
Yesterday (friday) was a very productive day, everyone was out so i did my usaual clean up, (for a man i do look pretty darn good in an apron ..lol ), i played some cds on my tv rather than using my mp3 player, and had to put one of my clothes dryers back together ( timer switch burned out so now have to get rid of it), My dad came over and had coffee, and then i decided to clean out the junkyard we call a garage. So i pulled eveything out swept it all out and put everything back in its proper place and now we have room.. We have decided to make half of the space into a play room for the kids so have to get rid of some junk. So all in all i very productive and good day, The only thing i didnt manage to do was get to the beach, (still can't cross main road as yet) but today (Saturday) is fine and sunny and a good day for a walk so i will go for a walk shortly. ( just need a few more coffees Decaf of course).
So i hope all of you have a great day today, and an even better tommorow.

Great to hear you had a fun vacation, Sorry to hear about your tooth and luggage, hope all is ok.
I have to admit that since joining the HW family, i really feel happier in myself alot more than i used to, also i think the increase in meds have boosted me along as well.
A few months ago everything seemed to be a chore, and i didnt even feel like getting out of bed in the morning, and when i did i would sit at the computer for 12-14 hours a day doing nothing.
In the last few months i want to do things, i feel happier (i still have moments where i hit rock bottom, but these are just little setbacks). It's at the stage where i actually want to go outside and weed the garden, and i hate weeding..lol.
I do owe an enormous thank you to everyone here at HW, everyone here is so supportive and welcoming, it's a great boost for me and everyone. Being able to share with others really helps alot, and i ususally cant share with others, so thats another big step i've accomplished since joining HW.
Again thank you heaps, you are all great people, and we all deserve to and will conquer these nasty critters holding us back from total happiness.
((((((((HUGS)))))))) to all.
hope today is a great day for you all.....
I am so glad to hear the postive feedback in your post. I sooooooo agree that Healing Well and the members are just the best.
Joining this group was good for you but it has been you that has taken the steps to come this far and look at you. Meds or not you have pulled yourself up and your posts bring insight to so many. Be proud of you.
I am now known as snaggle tooth after vacation :) Can't let the little things keep us down. We are winners.
Keep on with those good days and I wish you a whole calendar full.
i still have my downs every day but i dont let them take over anymore, i've told myself that it's positive thinking all the way.
My dad saw my doctor a few days ago to get more medication for me and gave him a progress report, and my doctor said he feels it will be at least 12 months before i can go to work again. (cant wait to run a restaurant kitchen again), But with my goals i have im hoping for 6 months, but if it takes 12 months it just means my passion for food will be stronger so not a setback at all.
I called my best friend last night, He and his Wife just had a baby, and he said he can see the difference just in my voice.
The last time he saw me a few months ago he said "The you i knew wasn't there!" but now i sound really good to him so thats another great step.
He is actually bringing new baby over in a week or so, and we have a walk planned, something i could'nt do last time he was here, so looking forward to that.
And Kitt aka Snaggle Tooth, hope your tooth gets better real soon.
((((((((HUGS)))))))) to all and hope everyone has a fantastic day....
Hi there.................Glad you are moving forward and congrats to your friends on the new bundle of joy.
Yes we have bad days but my Pdoc and I have worked hard at helping me to learn to accept some normal not so good days as everyone has them and that just makes me like everyone, not different.
Your goals sound doable and well thought out. I am glad to hear you have set realistic goals yet given yourself permission to extend the time frame if needed.
The snaggle tooth has given me character...........lol. It has also made me keep my big mouth shut so it may be a blessing. :)
Take care my friend and gentle hugs to you.
I would gladly clean your house, as long as you dont tease me about my apron..lols .. My mum is like yours, she used to wake us at 4:30am every morning with the vaccum, and her house was always sparkling clean. And i know the feeling with 4 kids of my own, (WOW they can trash a bedroom in 2.5 seconds..lol).
I'm really happy that you've enjoyed my posts, it makes me feel good to know people enjoy reading them an i hope it helps people as well.
The change in myself since joining the family here at HW is amazing. I never thought it possible to feel even remotely happy, but now i find myself feeling better everyday. I have alot to thank people for.
That is so true, Bad days do make us exactly the same as everyone else, we are no different, everyone has bad days. Now when i have a bad period in a day, at the end of the day i tell myself "tomorrow will be a better day". and i wake up feeling positive rather than negative..
