I watched the news tonight for the first time in weeks and managed to concentrate on it. Not that it was very interesting, but it makes a change to be able to follow something through without losing the thread. Maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to watch the 4 episodes of Holby City that I've got saved up - I haven't watched it for a month. I can't believe I've lost all that time - it's only when I look at my calendar that I realise how long it's been since I started this blog. Writing it all down has helped enormously now I look back, and I must remember that for next time, as there's bound to be a next time - I just hope it isn't too soon after this one. The trick now is to adjust my medication so that I don't rebound into a high, which sometimes happens; I shall still have to monitor my mood for a while.
I've looked up my Tesco's order and it is only milk and fags - how embarrassing. It was the same when I had my knee replaced and couldn't get to the shops - mostly fags, milk and bread. My smoking has been dreadful during this episode, so I must try to cut back a bit - I smoke when I'm up and about at night, so hopefully I won't be up tonight and therefore won't smoke quite so much.
Tomorrow I'm going to tidy and sort out all the post that I haven't opened - wish me luck.
I spent 16 years in the RAF defending the Free World , then got bunged out unceremoniously for being bipolar. I and was subsequently diagnosed with PTSD. Funny old world, isn't it?
