    Connections - long term goal - working - lying.

    Had another appointment with connections and the lady (my support worker?) filled out a form to mind housing or mind, i guess mind housing. There was a section about goals? And firstly it was put down about working towards getting back to work eventually or a sort of long term goal? i don't know...

    The one thing i can recommend everyone

    To try at least once is fitness, weightlifting, running or something, anything with weights. I advice this sport because it is an individual sport and you don't need anyone else to do it. So you can do it anytime. And even if it is not your thing, trying it once is not the end of the world...

    How can I get standard knowledge?

    Ok, so setting and meeting a goal offends others... OK, spiritualist thinking aside, if somebody sets and meets a goal to lose weight, is this offensive? or to buy a house? Or to go on holiday? i don't where you live, but then I don't think many people would say striving for something per se...

    Keeping motivated

    I have a hard time staying motivated or feeling like anything I'm doing is making a difference. I can feel that I'm getting better and then a short conversation with someone will pull a trigger I thought I had conquered and I will feel like I have made no progress at all. I can see I'm still...

    period problems

    I know I asked about this before, but I went to see a nutritionist and I got weighed there. I am 113 pounds and I am 5 6". She said that her goal for me is to weigh 120-122 pounds. 7 pounds seems like a lot. My goal was between 117 and 119. My major concern is getting my period back. At...

    Insight - what does it mean to you?

    Do you have 'insight' and do others believe / agree with your assessment? I'm curious, because I have been generally described as having no / limited insight - when I was 'unwell' (dependent on various substances / depressed / suicidal attempts and experiments / paranoid etc) I would argue...

    Hope: When It Seems like All is Lost by Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D

    There may be plenty of times in life where the sense arises in our minds and bodies that all seems lost. Maybe it’s after we lose someone we loved, or after being let go from a job, or perhaps when depression has us pinned to the ground. If there’s one thing we know as a fact, hope is never...
