Thread: cautiously optimistic

    cautiously optimistic

    so it seems joining up here and talking things out is helping immensely. i feel less isolated and more connected, and i'm doing things more. tentatively i'll say i'm feeling better. i fully expect a relapse at some point (it's just how it seems to work with me) and we'll see how i feel once the show is ovwer and i go back to work, but for now things are on the up.

    Well done. It is pretty brave of you to say you are feeling even a little better in the face of what you consider to be a possible relapse. Try to remember how you feel right now not as a rarity, but perhaps as something you have always been capable of all along.

    You've stepped on my point there I was going to say ups and downs are natural in everybody's lives and I'm do glad you're seeing some light
    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass

    i think haing made a firm decision about the masters helped immensely (i really like that word at the moment for some reason). there's much still to do, but at least im not trying to go through multiple doors at once.
