I joined this about a year ago and am finding it really helpful
its in a church hall although apparently they are not church people
the people there are cheerful and happy
I feel like I have never seen such happy people
and they actually seem to like me !

I find it difficult to ' switch gear '
coming from so many years in mental health environments
used to talking about triggers and stuff like that

to start chatting in the ' normal ' way
of people who have not had these problems

which takes me way back to before my problems started

I went to a party last night where I didn't know anyone so could talk about anything I wanted and not talk about anything wanted, it was amazing to blend in well and make people laugh and listen to their lovely lives

that is amazing really isn't it
when you get a taste of the ' normal world '
I know, with a bit of irony isn't it ...
the happy world maybe

It's great to remember what it felt like before, to remember that you can do it, it's not a life sentence for definite! I wish you more and more moments!
