Happy Mothering Sunday to all!
Gosh today is an easy read ramble, people seem to like my rambles.
I hope you are all staying safe and taking wonderful care of yourselves as you deserve! I have had lovely peaceful wake-ups this weekend. However, this week has been slightly tough for a few people I am close to, I have tried my best to support them but I provided too much energy to it. I ended up feeling *very* drained yesterday after a 2-hour tutorial for the upcoming assignment. I feel like I will be one of few not asking for an extension.
I have definitely felt privileged this week and checked it given my circumstances, very little of my life will change with The Current Situation. The only change is I do not know when I will next be in the physical presence of my partner. It sounds ridiculous, I know. I see his face every day over video calls but I don’t know when I will get my next hug. This is important to me because of the way I have attached to him and certainly, seeing him keeps me well. So I think I shall have to create a WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Plan) on how to cope with an unknown time until I see him. WRAPs are brilliant, I think they can be so versatile, regardless of whether or not you have a mental illness. If you like I can do a post in the future on this? Let me know what you think! I will happily share mine as an example.
So, things are relatively well for me in spite of upcoming changes, I plan to spend the foreseeable future at home, which is no difference with having agoraphobia. I am coping well. I aim to be spending most of my free time reading, I have bought many, many books to read. Right now is the perfect excuse to immerse myself into it. I have a few fiction amongst the non-fiction. Send any recommendations my way! I will also be studying, I am so close to finishing with just two assignments and an alternative option for my now cancelled exam. I find out soon what that option will be. I am also thinking of spending time learning a new language, at school I was fantastic at French and became very fluent, of course, without upkeeping my skill it has been lost. I am thinking along the lines of Spanish, it is such a commonly spoken language now, it may be useful in the future! If you know of any great apps or programmes, again, let me know.
I think that is my update for now. I quite like these updates, maybe once a month I will do a post like this. I think looking into other people’s lives are fascinating. I will also be updating the information page once again as I have found more pages of information and resources 🙂
Much happiness to you (and love),
