I've been reading this thread since the start and you have made such progress sadpunchingbag, you should feel really proud of what you have already achieved. Your latest posts also show a lot of positivity and determination - something mental illness strips you of, so you are winning! There's no stopping you now. :hug:
thanks so much BatDuck that really puts a smile on my face it really is a struggle feels like climbing a mountain but in the end it should all be worth it just gotta practice catching myself when i get in a cycle but i am already practising that now

Today was a bit of a sleeper day Sunday and all. I noticed i have not been washing in the morning just slouching around i worked out why i have been going to sleep later i dont get my medication. Codeine for soft tissue damage till 9.30pm takes 1 hour to kick in and i need to nod off so i am going to ask for it earlier so i can end my nights earlier. I assume it should go fine but we will see how the nurses handle it they have been some bad times here when it comes to meds but fuck it we will see lads.

Also i said i would bring up important things if needed so there was a patient who attacked me 2 times in 2 days for no reason he has psychosis anyway they asked me can he come out for 1 hour in the garden because he is the ICU ie rubber room i said sure but let me know before hand they agreed as this is a high intensity dangerous problem anyway they didnt do it in the last 2 days so its a massive problem my primary nurse is going to sort it because again this is a act of negligence from the nurses and the people are meant to keep me safe not doing there job. but anyway that should get resolved if not ill be ready for him if he goes for me this time around.

Got a few plans tomorrow i got a new psychologist and a new OT so i gotta ask them both what my times are for the sessions for the week then add it to my schedule. Also got a dentist appointment i was not informed till tonight which is better than the morning of so i gotta do that so i will be up early tomorrow

I am going to the gym tomorrow the hospital one do 1 hour of cardio thats the goal and will go for a walk on after dinner.

spoke to my parents on the phone its been 1 month since i saw them its for my own good in terms of my mental health currently but the chat was nice

gotta rewrite my ward round notes wont take longer than 30mins

also want to study but i am going to try get all the important shit out the way then chill

we will see how it ends off i am still losing weight so thats good sorta sad my primary nurse is leaving because he is a legend but i know how to operate in a psychiatric hospital to get things done/ be respected by staff who dont take advantage of what my lack of knowledge of the system was but now i am good.

night people post how you are doing i would like to know xxx

You’ve been doing that punch and it’s working so well
for you.
I think the saying is
“ it’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon”
Keep doing what you are doing.

Today was a start went to the local hospital gym spent 30mins on cardio which is something i will increase next time on wednesday ill try for 50mins 25mins on the rower and 25mins on the seated bike.

was going to go out but a few problems with staff not doing there job for the psychotic patient but it will be what it will be with these staff running things i cant expect competency

played pool with a few other patients also spoke to some staff nice convos.

did not revise makes me sad but just trying to get more consistent with the balls i am currently juggling before i add another ball

have ward round tomorrow so i did my notes all done. going on a walk tommorrow with staff i most likely will be the only patient like last week lol but its fine i have a plan tommorrow to go the the local gym also go for the walk then go out again to get some tangerines and a present for my nurse leaving on friday and a card

bit of a boring day but you know not everyday is a home run just ramping myself up to crush again

ps last thing before i forget they forgot to bring my food for lunch and dinner i could not eat the food provided so i had a apple just for lunch and had plain chicken and beans with a couple wedges it was actually good thank you to the nurse who went the extra mile to try help me find something to eat i cant say your name but i will remember it :)

I've had a horrible cold. I feel lucky to just be alive. Although my pumpkins are starting to grow bigger. My garden is a bit slow and alot of grandma's are doing better than me. Punch, do you ever like to do yoga. Sometimes I need gentle exercise at my age. It's good that you have so much energy. Just made some fried rice. It's great that we are eating more veggies at my house. I noticed a difference in energy and temperament

Today is bible study and I did my bible study homework. Looking for a good book to read. Found some books at the library about mental illness. It really helps to know that I'm not alone. The forum has helped alot too. Was watching emmamadeinjapan on youtube. She was making mesquite bean jam and this weird sandwich. Supposedly in Asia, people like potato salad, cabbage and jam sandwiches. I think that they are called Ikigayo sandwiches. Was reading up on buffy the vampire slayer. I liked this character called Drusilla. She had a romance with spike.

Not to worry and checking on reports his more important to you and with what they're saying.
Oh I feel better being back and i'm not letting this mental block stop me either, I've not got a clue what causes it. x
