HI Folks,

Basically, regarding miserable weather today, certainly and they were bang on, with the forcast, for rain at 1.30pm, I have been feeling low and irritible. I have been knitting this afternoon, and music listening, and the two combined have immensely. Also I did take my antisphycotic and general mental health med earlier than what would h ave been the norm, so that was a help.


I am hoping that I'll do a home workout tomorrow afternoon, parents shall be out shopping, I'll have use of the living room downstairs for extra space to work out in.


Generally and overall mental health wise, I'm very well.



Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Folks,


After all of the miserable weather, and t here's blue sky at the minute, round my way, I have since perked up and feeling much better, I had been knitting all day, evening and this morning, now I have switched over to cross stitching, and music combined.

I am unsettled in terms of trying to switch volunteeering day, i am much better weather wise, though.

Hi Mix-Tape,

I'm knitting square pieces, of one colour per square, a mixture of colours overall though, eventually to turn into a blanket, which I have made a couple of before years ago.


Thanks for asking.

Hi Folks,

Sorry it's taken until now for me to actually post.


I have been absolutely shattered today. Went out shopping to another area, and had bus delays with roadworks, via temporary lights, so that took a bit of time, and also I had a dental appointment this afternoon, so the two outings, have had me very tired.


i'm alright mental health main conditions, and just to remind my anxieties are now at ease, in terms of particular volunteering - copy typing. And I'm relieved, there's always copy typing to do, except, I'll be reviewed first and foremost in at some point, certainly in 2 months, in total from April the 24th, onwards weekly.


I am uncertain, when I can be working out again. I don't know yet.


Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Folks,

I was feeling for the week, low and irritible, so I thought i must do something about it, and I took a dose of Fluxoetine, instead of 5ml, I increased it to 7.5ml, liquid dose, which is my norm of dose anyhow, and I am much better. Problem, being though, knock on effect of tiredness, by during the evening, so I needed to take a 1 energy tablet to keep me alert, and I have just had my evening meal.


The low and irritibilty feelings have greatly improved.

I am replanning to get to zumba, on Saturday morning. Just as long, ah h em, I don't oversleep, annoyance feeling in advance of oversleeping just in case that might happen.



Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Folks,


I'm very well. No mental health problems, and I had to increase my dose slightly today, due to irritiblity.

I have been greatly improved, for the afternoon, evening.


I managed to get my workout done today. And I think, half five/6 onwards in the morning is the most preferred time for me to workout. I am not going to zumba gold for a few weeks, I wish to build up my stamina and strength for hard and fast fitness dance.


I am looking forward to my volunteering on Tuesday, I am volunteering along side support guide for me.


At the moment, I have clear mid late week, with no volunteering anywhere else aside.


I am still either needle working or knitting, and music/musicals combined.

And off course, tuning in to MHF.


Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Folks,


Having been up from 4.30am, today, I am absolutely shattered, a light workout of salsacise dvd, and also travel and volunteering combined.


Problem was? I hadn't had my energy supplement for the day, so that was partially the problem.


I'm very well main major ailments of szchiophrenia wise within me, they are down and at bay.


I have been absolutely - tired, and slightly anxious, to have to happily get blood tests done that is the first step.


Relaxing by musicals/music - aplogies for the delay, Iheard a loud sound, had to go to check within at home - cold, one of the overn dishes, fell to the floor apparently, nothing in it, though, relief. Yes, listening to musicals/music, and knitting. Whilst we have some pretty bad weather coming up, i can't focus on cross stitching work, I need to feel absolutley - calm for that.


Regards All,


Natalie.

Morning Folks,


I'm very well mental health wise, no such problems to report up.


I slept mostly very well, and woke up from a deep sleep, around 7, now that's a more comfortable time to wake up upon.


I was planning to get a workout done, however, with a view to get to dental at 2.30pm, parents are out shopping the late morning, this is when I was thinking of working out, I won't have the time, and to fit lunch in as well.


I'll workout tomorrow. All being well.



Regards All,


Natalie.

HI Folks,


Now that the anxieties over to switch or not switch day at volunteering has been sorted, have completely gone, and also I wasn't very well last week, with a deep thigh infection, my shakiness happened to have been very bad, stress wise, my and having lowered dose temporarily to 20ml for a few days, my shakiness - now, on 25ml, is fine. I was just holding the mouse a bit before, and my hand certainly wasn't shaking.


Also, I am feeling much more relaxed in that, my blood tests have now been booked, although no availability for acouple of weeks, couldn't believe it, eventually, have been booked for the 8th June.

Meaning, I can happily get to the mailing on the 6th June. It's a very big mailing, and my co-ordinator, volunteers manager, needs my excess help, and we can never gauge, how many people might show up.


So I am very much glad, this the blood tests, will be on the Friday.


It's a fasting one.


I am then to be requested in by the GP again, after the results or the tests have been done.


I am as always still music, musicals listening, I haven't got round to checking the weather again, and at the moment, knitting, I can't focus on involved needle work, not whilst there will be bad wea ther in tow.


The needle work needs my full attention.


i might however, and they have them, at the moment, buy a floral pre printed mini kit.


Mental health wise, major main ailments, I'm very well. Tired, through not well today, via sinuses, and irritiblity, i took a supplement to help become calmer.


Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Folks,


I had a terrible acute bout of sinuses, come up and also psorasis, combined, anyway, I used my brand new nasal spray, it's excellent and brilliant as a de congestion, I haven't got to take painkillers, no more.

i was just starting to feel irritiblity, and also via my right ear, I'll put softening cream on, occasionally from time to time, I do get hardened dry skin problems, via the right ear, my left ear is always finer.


I am overall looking forward to the meal out with brother and girlfriend, with parents, my parents, tomorrow, although i'm not going to like, wet wet wet and thundery showers, all day and evening long. I'd rather hibenate jokingly and arrive onto Monday, which off course, is Bank hols.


I am/have been/will be settling down, into knitting and music and musicals combined.



I have taken my 20ml dose of med. i feel very much more comfortable in the waking alerting sense at 20ml, than at 25ml, very very strong, waking sense at that dose.


Regards All,


Natalie.
