Ah ! What a cute doggie,he will become your soulmate and able to sense your every emotion and give you support,he will also sense anyone that you don’t like, ours do and will growl if they think we are apprehensive.dogs really do see us.just so long as there happy they don’t really need much,just food water and a nice warm body to cuddle up to.take care.
That’s how I felt about the collies we had too. They just seemed to know and gave companionship and comfort. One day I will have a dog again too. I think we must all have used up lots of energy to get through the Christmas month and now we need January to regain our strength.
Yeah, that’s what I was thinking Lonewarrior. Now I know my diagnosis, I’m no longer trying to get that connection with others and I thought a little doggie will help with that. It will help me in so many ways, not to mention having a little friend I can pour my love into. And she’ll be small enough that she will be able to come with me wherever I go.
Definitely Misfit. I had never fully realised until this year how much Christmas takes it out of me. And I wouldn’t mind but people don’t seem to celebrate it in the spirit in which it is intended which makes it not only exhausting but pretty much a waste of time.
This is pretty random. I forgot to say that on New Year’s Eve, I wore my dark sunglasses the whole night. It felt so liberating. I felt less bothered by lighting etc or by other people. It’s almost as if they made an invisible shield between me and them and enabled me to be more comfortable being myself. I must have looked quite the sight in my wellies and sunglasses on a night out in a posh restaurant :)
Fab! What a picture. Someone told quite a while ago that they wore shades to make it easier to be out and about in the street so I think that a good idea but not tried it yet. I expect Whitby folk are used to wellies. If the combination made you more at ease... why not?
Of coarse you can ellie, I have plenty for all.
Been a very long day today!
my mind wasn’t focused on work.
Seems I was due to hit a low as lately I have been feeling very happy emotionally.
Maybe I just ran out of energy?
just couldn’t keep going?
I don’t really know. Emotions are difficult for me,
Recently being told I was of use kind of hit me hard, For once in my life I had to accept I had done something right.
TenaciouseT and BlueRay were so nice telling me I was kind and had helped out.
I ran away as my emotions couldn’t cope. That all familiar push pull feeling,
anyway feeling a bit better now, the day just dragged on, we got little done but it was the fault of management not me.
Glad some accepted the hugs,,,,,,I can give freely but accepting I know is hard,,,,,

I've had a varied week with several meetings with my multiple advisors.
On Wednesday I had a proper job interview coming up. So on Tuesday, one organisation helping me gave me a mock interview. The email inviting me to the interview was very formal, insisting that I bring multiple proofs of my right to live and work in the UK. And proof of ID and address etc. The also insisted on dressing in 'business attire'.
The actual interview was very different. I suspect that the email was sent by the head office. The interviewers were very informal in dress and manner. The staff were dressed in normal clothes, t shirts with tattoos on arms (men and women had tattoos). The interview itself was held in what I would describe as a wooden summerhouse/garden shed, at the bottom of the garden.
Today I had two meetings, one with work coach at a job centre. The other with my employment specialist / mental health case worker. Next month he wants me to attend an 'ESS assessment' ( it's a test of my level of maths and English), it's a condition of their funding.
Oh yeah, and nobody batted an eye. And yes, the shades were really helpful. I’m going to do it more often. My eyes felt less strained, my attention seemed more focused, I felt more relaxed. Plus, I like my sunglasses better than my regular glasses, so why not! ;) and they definitely help with sensory processing. I’m after some noise cancelling headphones as well, so can’t wait to get them. Headphones, dark shades, wellies and flat cap, I’ll be sorted! :)
I would like to take a hug if I may Lone, and send some out in return to anyone who might like an extra one, strictly virtual of course! January is always hard for me, I've yet to meet it with hope in my heart.
