I am grateful, that I don't have to be under although the name's dormant, cmht anymore, long may it continue, I prefer the flexilibty and freeedom, see below, and in connection just under GP care service only;

volunteering across charitible orgs, in North West of London,

befriending which I am still on the rechid waiting list for,

working out in fitness, both in at home, and presently in the throes of planning to attend classes;


and also, linked, via my care and community centre to which I am member, and volunteer of, to my very strong mutual very friendly, very good personallity, and who is a bonus of handsome and attractive - admirer.


These are my 4 or 5 catagories, which make me happier, and also stronger in terms of mental health wellbeing overall.

That is a good point too, living in home, together with parents, and brother based in home part time basis, now, girlfriend, long dist ance, Kent, and work, brother's girlfriend this is, from Wednesday to Friday.

Just a final one; having financial help support, as I simply cannot count ha ha, seriously though i can't do sums withouit a calculator - from father.

I am grateful that I have an out-of-work income, a good home, and time to work on my recovery and towards employment again.

I am really grateful that my benefits were approved last year because this year a lot changes for me.

I mean, for being alive still.

Even if my family is hardly rich by any reasonable standard and I'm from a country far below in economic standards to those of the developed world, if I were to look at the data it would probably still be in like the top 30% most wealthy of humanity, just because there are so many people out there living in outright, abject misery while I've always had relative comfort despite never being able to work a single day. It's entirely normal for me but in reality it's a small miracle that I didn't just die homeless in some filthy street years ago.

I don't think I deserve it over so many others that get much less but at least I try to keep perspective on it, as sometimes it's so easy to lose one self in abyss of our problems and forget when lady luck has smiled upon us.

I am also grateful for the benefits i recieve which has taken away any financial worries.
And last but not least, i am grateful for my flat as i have a place to call home and it keeps the rain off my head
