Talking by a River…

26 Jul

So just off the phone with my councillor (who’s lovely) which was our third meeting. First was an initial assessment, then our first chat where to my horror I steadily worked my way through a box of tissues! This time I sat by the river at work and we went through the workbooks I’ve got. I’ve been given the NHS ‘overcoming’ booklets which are a bit frothy and light for my liking but Laura has also pointed me at the Australian CCI site which is fantastic. We’re going to focus on Low Moods (depression) first and then see what results from that.

I’m going to be working through the Back from The Blues worksheets. these are more in-depth and reach out better to me. I will also be filing out a mood / activity dairy where I rate my daily activities. The plan is to help us both balance and understand my schedule more and avoid spikes and intense periods. The other upshot is that I’ll learn to appreciate my victories more and celebrate success no matter how small.

So until next time 🙂
