Hi all,

I am now better following from my day's severe anxieties which built up, suddenly some what, unknown the reason how, within the day today, had finally gotten round to listening to music, and by the early evening, i was having excessive hunger problems, along of anxieties, anyway, I started to feel, hunger again, so i repeated the homeopathic type, can repeat, a few times a day, or every half houir, until the level of acuteness wears off. I am now feeling eaier for during the evening. I was feeling anxioius long before, I took my 20ml dose, of antipshycotic, and hearing voices all in one med, so I know I can't blame for having the dose so late on in the day, for that. These were external factors out of home.

As a precaution, I am now wearing my travel bands, to help ease up the anxiety acute levels, mentally.

HI all,

Apologies for taking so long to post today.



I'd been out on local errands, much much better, I think, because i took a dose of homeopathics, to calm my anxieties down, and thankfully after returning home, I;d been fine. However, I wasn't well, owing to sinuses headache, I've just used my headache rub on so far, and my small inhaler stick. I might move on to my sinuses med, actually.


I'll see how I am by the late afternoon/early evening time, if I might feel upto for a light load of working out.

Otherwise, tomorrow.


Will be listening to music, and needleworking as always. Or even knitting, to get my hands a booster of circulation.

Happy New Year, in advance, of tonight, it's too late for me, to try and keep up, to see the New Year in. NO doube, I'll get disturbed, by the fireworks, as usual, trying to settle to sleep.

Natalie.

HI everyone,


I'm fine now very well, after bouts of anxiety flare ups, for reasons unknown, on Friday, 30th December.


You all recall me reporting, elsewhere in the MHF site, that I became very anxious, on Christmas Day, due to a unplanned, power cut, and it affected virtually the entire section of our road, until the break, in the road, and a new postcode starts, well, we had a knock, from the network power company, for a follow on update, and they stipulated, this was today, by the way, mum phoned on Thursday, complaining of lower power, reduction, that we were to be registering, at a certain level of figure, and we were just as in a clock, half an hour shorter, of rate of power, as a bit like a clock of 2 and 3 pm, anyway, they explained, that they will be doing external work, to refix the problem, and then we should be up and running back to full capacity of power, it;s early days yet, and they said we'll probably hear them digging, soon, well, where we are, we won't hear, anything much, and I'll presume, that they will then give a confirmed upto date report much later on, today, or tomorrow.


So this very much has been right fun and games, since the power cut on Christmas day, and mum moaning, that she had reduced power in the kitchen area.


One will see, how things will progress, in fulness of time. So its thankful, mum did report, maybe a bit too late on in the week, the problem.


i am not anxious over the power situation now, no, I am well.

Hi all,


I have just completed a workout session. I just based around low impact traditional aerobics, now, mental health wise, I'm feeling much better, and mentally fitter from the workout, I must try to remember, or certainly if needed to, workout on a daily regular basis; that's apart from weight reasons.


i'll next workout again, on Next - a New year, Bank holiday Monday.


Have a hopeful good time, and keep well hopefully everyone, for tonight, at Midnight, a New Year,



Natalie.

HI all,

In my localised area, the fireworks, have been going off, like crazy, something chronic. I was feeling to settle down earlier for the night, only, I don't think so, not with all of the fireworks going off, and there's another one, whilst I'm preparing this post! It's not, I'll stress, even Midnight A New Year, yet, a while. (sigh)


I'm fine, no irritilbity about, in terms of the bad weather recently experierenced, then, I took a dose of my Evning Primrose, to helpme feel lifted up more.


And that's something else, I was reducing down to 20ml, due to irritliby however, I increased back up. I'll monitor the weather for the New Year week, and I'll chance me then, to reduce down slightly. I'm very well, no mental health acute nor severe problems to report. On 25ml.


i have done a workout this evening, and I am still feeling the benefits, following on from the workout, for 7.- 7.30pm, for half hour.


Happy New year, all,


Natalie.

Hi all,


I managed to have roughly all night of sleep. There wasn't too much more fireworks, happening, in my area, not far from me, although locally near me, there was apparently.


I'm very well, no mental health problems acute nor otherwise, to report.


Will hopefully be listening to music, and needleworking in some moments.


I might well get another workout done, I don't know, just yet.



Happy New Year, 2017, everyone,


Natalie.

HI all,

I'm ok, I'm very well. i'm consdiered to be a well character, rather than ill.


I haven't had a chance moment to sit and probably relax, and to focus on mental healht supplementary techniques today, I am in and have been in the steady throes, which I hadn't been able to get round, due to painful knees, and or head, in terms of sinuses, over time, and that's sorting my room. I had it mind to do it this weekend, anyhow, and I had the extra incentive, from my father, strangely, I'm not feeling so stressed, due to that thouigh, maybe because it's the festive season, and I have the peace and quiet for the moment, withoiut the need to monitor and then having happily to get to volunteering.


i shan't bother about zumba this Wednesday, slightly colder for my liking, outside wise, and I don't wish to catch a cold, either, all being well, the following week, I'll attend Wednesday morning then.


Hopefully for during this evening, I'll settle down, to focus on my mental health techniques, music and cross stiching, or knitting depending which f rame of mind, I happen to be in.


I might wish to get a workout done, also.


Natalie.

Hi all,


I felt that I couldn't overdo things, not all in one go, so I felt I'll take a couple of hours out, excluding dinner time to have a break from sorting my room. Have been listening to musical and cross stitching.


I don't think somehow I'm going to get working out today, I'm just feeling worn out mentally from the tidying.


Certainly from mid week onwards, I intend on working out on a regular basis. I might not go to go zumba on Wednesday due to the slightly colder temperatures, as I say, and I don't wish to catch a bad cold, either.


From the beginning or later on, no, from the beginning of this next week, so to allow for Wednesday onwards, I'll begin monitoring and hopefully; for volunteering ad hoc duties, and then from at some point I shoudl know about a vague promising offline volunteering role, for me. i decided, I shan't phone ahead, I'll let them call me, or email me, and then I'll take it from there, if I haven't heard, I might then phone or email. I might have my communication difficulties also, separately from mental health, I continue as always to press on to perservere and rise above the communication - speech problems.

Hi all,

I'm very well, managed to gain proper staying asleep all night.


Have resumed in tiyding up my room, now, there's a strong chance, though i don't know, just yet whether If I'll be able to join mum and dad, for a luncheon out, so I'll have to monitor, and see what happens on the part of dad, on that one.


I am reducing me down to 20ml, i always always do find, that 25ml is very very strong in the waking alerting sense, and I prefer to be comfortably awake on 20ml. I always supplement me with self help managemen and also fitness management, anyway.


Once again, Happy New Year,


Natalie.

Hi all,


Just to update, I have been given the go ahead, and join parents, for their lunch outing, today, to a restaurant we always go to, locally.


i am almost complete, with my room tyiding, so I should then be happily given the further go ahead, for in due course, for going out to volunteer, he's let me go dad, and it's a long story, a couple of times, volunteering.


I don't think, I'll be working out today, due to a possibly had, heavy lunch. Well, italian based, anyway.

Hi all,


I am hoping that the next couple of months, this one and the one following, will be a much calmer and relaxed mode for me, via in on the home front, and also interms of external factors, ie, now that the festive season, and we are very much now into the start up of the New Year, I'll be returned to as normal, regardign monitoring for voluntary work ad hoc duties, offline and outside of home, or a vague prospective promising role, to materalise, and I'll have an idea, about that, within this month, too.


I am looking to be working out in at home fitness, much more, than I haven't been able to, over the past year, for regarding painful health problems, of some sort or another. Mainly knees. Plus the odd sinuses, in head, flaring up. If i caught drafts, from windy weather at chiller temperature levels.


Plan to be knitting much more, than cross stiching, I'll give that a breather and put that to temporary bed, for the time being, it will be so colder for me during the afternoons, through my reynoulds, or unless, lol, I happen to have the odd couple of hot flush feels here and there, during an afternoon, than I might well feel to cross stitch.


So I shall be all being well, commencing, from this week, monitoring of my email account, and in doing so for that, be preparing to workout regularly, so I might be spending sometime as always, lengthy breaks, from MHF, whilst I prepare, for travelling purposes, asorbing those in head in preparation, and for the type of possible work, once I know, what work will be, oh, volunteering will be.

Update for the evening/overnight;


My irritiblity levels somewhow or another - have remarkably improved, and completely bounced off, and I am bouncing back, and recouperating from all of that, I don't also have any main major mental health symptons, so all is well there on that front.

i've basically just been relaxing down, for during and onwards resuming for the evening.


I am hoping that tomorrow, during the afternoon, I'll get a workout done.


I'll probably won't be on properly to MHF, not until sometime, in the early to mid afternoon, and keeping an eye on New Posts here and there, and an eye on my volunteering nofication emails, just in case, in time for later on this week, well, I never know what can happen. Which is why, I'll keep a strong monitoring checks tomorrow, via my emails.


Wednesday morning, I'm hoping to go to zumba in my local community setting, not far from me, only 10 mins walk, weather permitting, and I'll need to double-check, that the class will be on. i'll either phone the community centre, or the fitness outfit, to double-check, in advance, tomorrow. i figured that in terms of the seeping colder temperatures, at the moment, now, in this building, the zumba is done upstairs, so I'll be much away from the lobby entrance area.


if the zumba shan't be on, I'll do a home workout later on on the day, instead.


Regarding the late week, i don't know what will happen, or rather anything volunteering wise can happen, the least expected.

HI all,

I'm very well, a very very bitter day today, this afternoon, I shall make a hot drink.


i have recieved my first volunteering notification, request, for helping to complete a mailing tasks, the filling items will arrive tomorrow, at some point, so I'll go in to this organisation on Monday, to help out, I'll be volunteering externally offline, from 10-10.30-2.30pm. I probably shan;t be logging on, not until, just maybe the mid evening, after the evening meal. Just to allow me to have my breath back, after travelling back home, from volunteering.


i can't resume my working out just yet, I still have a problematic condition, which my mother is now assisting me with, on my shoulder, which is in a awkward position, for me to deal with. When it is much better, I'll resume working out. i had been extremely low, for one reason and or another, so that's why these boils have occurred, nothing to do with food intake snacky side of things.


I'll be resuming to monitor emails, for volunteering requests, and also listening to music, and in this very very colder weather, knitting, rather than cross stiching.


i'll sign off now, and be back, the late/afternoon, or better still, during the evening at some point. Keeping in mind the problems which I encouintered, last night, or early evening rather.

Hi all,

I have jus taken my medication dose, for antipshycotic and hearing voices.


I'm very well no undue problems, I have been having a quietish afternoon, of knitting, and music listening.


i was so suprised, having recived a volunteering notification, for today, in my email inbox, I had thought probably tomorrow, or Thursday. Anyway I'm all set for volunteering next Monday. I cannot at times adapt to short notice of volunteering so whilst I had the options, I took for Monday 9th, rather than a day this week, later on.


i am feeling much better from my boils condiitons flare ups, so I am hoping to, tomorrow, get going, with the start up safely, in terms of my working out on a regular basis.


I'll return to on here, later on sometime between 7.and 9pm.
