Hi all,

I had been feeling giddy a bit somewhat, I am prone to giddiness, even withouit getting a workout done, anyway, i felt to have rested from the computer for about half an hour and knitted and listened to music. I also had a painful head, in which I took a painkiller, mum;s supervising the amount of painkillers, I take now, though, I have greatly improved from taking painkillers, than, when i first became ill all those years ago, back in 2004 onwards.


Anyway, I'm finer now following on from the bout of giddiness.

i'LL ensure and am ensuring I take in plenty of fluids, if my brother knows me as well, and parents, dad mainly, i don't drink enoiugh, at times, I have probably a valid reason, for that, which i shan't at all disclose.

Hi all,

I couldn't feel for posting, or reading up on New Posts last night, during the evening, I was feeling very tired. So I retired early for the night.


I happened to be up earlyish today, so I thought right, I'll get possibly a workout in, before the day arrives, and before parents are up and about.


i'll be also monitoring through my email account, voluntary work role, and or ad hoc duties.



I'll also be music listening and knitting, for the time being.

Hi all,


I felt very very cold, and had a hot drink, soaked my hands, in very hot water, so I couldn't manage to get round to working out - not this side of lunchtime. Possibly early evening again.

HI all,

I had been f rom about 9 and 10 onwards, extremely irriitble, also, and I realised this eventually, my anxiety and paranoia levels had been up from Monday during the afternoon onwards, so this morning, to help counteract teh severe irrtiblity as well, I had to increase my mental health dose up to 25ml. Also, I needed to take a dose of Evening Primrose, too.


I just half hope we don't in LOndon, get a very dark, dull gloomy morning aroudn 10 onwards, unlike that again. Now, it's brightened up!!! I could have done with that, this morning.

Hi all,

I'm well, this afternoon, early evening.


Much better, daytime wise on 25ml. This is how i know, that over time, and i can't receive decent proper night sleep, then my anxiety and paranoia levels kick off, and I am then having problems, so although trialing me on 20ml, and I became also irritilbe, possible due to the weather this morning, i knew, i had to then reincrease the dose. It will now remain there. For the time being, I just am not able to drop it back.

Now that I am increasingly better mental health wise, i am needleworking, cross stitching with music.


i felt I shan't workout, until maybe at the end of the week, unless i feel the need, urgently to then workout tomorrow, late afternoon, some time.

HI all,


Just a short update for during the evening; I am now balanced and stablised once more on 25ml, so I have recovered from the mental health problems of recent times, and earlier this month, well, i say recent times, I'll probably will always get distruptive sleep. I can never keep asleep overnighters tright through.


Will resuem crosss stitching and music, after my evening meal.

HI all,


I have hopefully just got 2 days worth of volunteering next week, i originally was doing a back to back, however now I have happily a 2nd task come up in my very orginal organisation, I am feeling that I can not manage to adapt to 3 days worth. I have contacted my original number 2 line manager, and see if he would be willing for me only to be volunteering for him, just on MOnday.


The Monday work will consist of mailing, putting items into envelopes, now the work on Wednesday shall invovle me, putting 5 items, into 100 bags, so you can understand, why I wouldn't have wanted 2 days worth at my other place.


I am hoping that, if not today, then over the weekend, I'll workout, and then on Tuesday, working out then as well.

Hi all,

I have just seen an email, following on from my brand new organisation, which I now help in the radius of North West London,my prospective line manager left me feeling rather confused so I emailed him back, it's in terms of volunteering, only I wasn't sure, whether if it was for me to phone, in, or to be in and help on Tuesday next week. Hopefully whilst on today still, I'll have that clarified, or if it gets clarified, tomorrow, I won't mind which.


So it is now looking though I am not sure, just yet, possibly likely, there could be either a meeting, a task, or just over a phone call, for me, for next Tuesday. In which case, if there is a task, I'll have 3 different bookings for early next week. I am happy, I won't mind having 3 bookings potentially.

Hi all,

I now have it confirmed and clarified, that I'm to phone the prospective line manager, on Tuesday morning.


That will be a relief, I didn't really want to do a back to back at the Monday organisation, and I have a task at my organisation my very original haunt, on Wednesday. So preferably, it will just be a phone call.


im well, I don't have any major acute main symptons up, and I am taking 25ml. Just can't risk me on 20ml, for the forseeable future.

Hi all,

I hadn't been physically well, plus very tired from not physically well today, so I wasn't up to logging on for this evening. All should be as normal, tomorrow evening though. And throughout the day.


Mental health wise, I'm fine, no problems there to report. No it was is just my physical health.


Relxaing down this evening needleworking, and music listening.

Hi all,

No major mental health ailments to report; I'd been out twice today, and I am overtired. It will sound ridicoulous i know, I feel I'aim for an early night tonight about 9/9.30pm.


I'll spend the afternoon, recovering from my time out twice, needleworking, and listening to music.

I've just realised, I need to take my dose in a short while, of my antipshycotic and hearing voices combined medication. 20ml I am trialing again.

HI all,

I'm very well, was overtired, earlier in the day, I then made up a energy drink, and I am fine now.


i am hopefully on Wednesday, if i get the green light, from my volunteering co-ordinator, I am going to do which is all internal in the same premises, a zumba class session, before volunteering. I'll email her tomorrow, before I am out early to volunteer somewhere else on Monday, and I'll take note what comes back to me. It might well be ok, as she did offer me 11am originally. Still, I'll check with her beforehand.

I never like to feel sluggish, in time for volunteering anyway, and also it makes it very handy the zumba will be and is in the same premises locality set up.


I am still at it, listening to music, varying kinds, and cross stitching needleworking.



Have a good Saturday evening, and I'll be back later on this evening,


Natalie.
