I've spent the last couple of years the majority of the time worrying,panicking,being low,hiding, trying to survive.

I've just had a very large piece of chocolate fresh cream cake with ice cream and it felt good.

I'm going to try and notice a little more ,those naughty but nice moments, as there aren't many but they are worth noticing when i can.....

I've not really treated myself yet and I've been off school for a few days now. I've been through a break-up, I'm worried I haven't started any work yet (typical) and I've been ill. I'm catching up with Better Call Saul today, which is quite nice - but it feels like more of a distraction/procrastination technique than a treat.

Yes break ups stop us in our tracks, they are really horrible I understand.
Sounds to me like you are due a treat �� as we know it doesn't have to be a big treat just something that has a little feel good factor ��

I have had a crappy few years for other reasons. Relying on the mental health services to help me has been a bad idea. I think it is time I tried harder to help myself, and looking for small things/experiences to make me feel good/start finding out how to enjoy things again, is one place to start.

Cappuccino
Chicken, pesto, salad panino

in a coffee shop

That has actually made me get up and make myself a latte, not as nice as yours as its only from a packet.
Sounds lovely :) x
