I’ve discovered a little gem…

I went to the library on Tuesday to get some books and CD’s etc that were on the reading list my counsellor gave me.  Incidently, the Overcoming Depression book I had been reading turned out to be the old 2nd edition, so I got the 3rd edition out which is nearly twice as thick!  Started reading it again from the start as there is loads of new material in it.  So that’s been keeping me busy…

I also picked up the audio recording of Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers.  I had read the book a few years ago but never really got a whole lot out of it.  I listened to this audio on Tuesday evening (it’s about 1 hour 30 min I think) and found it so useful.  I can’t explain why really but it just gave me a real sense of ease – maybe that I can beat depression after all.  For the rest of the evening I felt really uplifted, something I haven’t felt in a long, long, long time.  It was amazing!  I will keep listening to it and hopefully will be able to write a more detailed review.

Yesterday I kept myself busy… I made lemon meringue cupcakes after discovering a great blog filled with lots of yummy recipes & other stuff by English Mum.  They were lovely!  G doesn’t like meringue or lemon curd so I made him some plain cupcakes with lemon icing.

Today – well hopefully it will be a good day, I’ve some stressful things to do work-wise but “I’ll handle it!”

Bye 4 now
