I'm happy how much I finally managed to do last week (and how quickly it passed, too ). I've been running 3 times. I still hate it (too much thinking time), but I'm getting better and faster (=less thinking time) and once I went inspite of the rain which would have been a perfect excuse.

I'm doing a small sewing job and though I can't do a lot everyday because of permanent exhaustion, I'm still good in my time scheme. This is really major for me, so fingers crossed. AND my flat is looking okay .

Cool Re: What I did today - for small achievements and cheers

This morning I went to my first pilates class, didn't know what to expect but I enjoyed it and the instructor was really lovely too . I don't feel particularly sore (yet) either.

Also the workdirections resident psychologist said she was very impressed with my efforts and progress that I've made in facing my fears (like taking part in workshops and stuff) in the past few months so...

on friday i did a presentation in front of aroubd 15 people. i handled it quite well and spoke quite confidently and elaberated on stuff without looking at my notes. i even made the class laugh twice when telling them you could download music from youtube for free. i was doing a presentation on copyright. i made them laugh when i said you could copy films from 70 years ago but they would be rubbisht with the help of my social worker and medication. i have even completed my coursework that doesnt have to be in for 2 weeks and done it good. motivation is a wonderfull thing when i could have killed myself loads of times i did it with the help of medication and people (who really can try to help you if you give them the chance. i used to sit at home on my own doing nothing and that motivates me. i would rather be challenged by what i am doing than doing nothing and feeling suicidal) never give up. even i wouldnt have believed that a year ago

Only just noticed this thread - don't read the boards as much as I used to. Great achievements everyone

Today I had a touch of bravado and walked in a posh hair salon in my town that was advertising for models and I asked if I could be a model. Then I spoiled it by putting myself down, saying: "I didn't think I'd be glamorous enough to be a model." I've got an appointment for Thursday. Just in time as I'd have been mistaken for a witch if I'd waited until after Halloween.

Thumbs up Re: What I did today - for small achievements and cheers

I went into a cafe this afternoon by myself, sat down and had a cup of coffee and read my book. Felt quite relaxed and didn't feel particularly self-conscious at all.

ok - this is one of the very few times i'll ever get to make a boasty post but writing this down is a bit like the equivalent of pinching myself to make sure it's real. found out today that i've been one of 5 students in my entire year nominated to represent my uni in this year's IBM Universities Business Challenge (a bit like a studenty version of the apprentice). i didn't put myself forward for it, and am also surely the world's least convincing businessperson. i'm also not even studying business. but bafflement aside, i am kind of chuffed to bits. that is all. *collapses in astonishment*

What a week! I should be proud of myself, I really should. So maybe if I post here, I will eventually.

I stepped way out of my comfort zone, away from the shelter of my flat and made a step back into my old life. I filled in for a job at a musical audition. Immediately after I agreed on that I had a full blown panic attack with nausea, headache, dizzyness etc. But I went through with it. I actually introduced myself after being initially ignored and again and again overcame my own fears and insecurities and all worked out better than I expected. The second day I already started joking and taking part in conversations. So apart from the fact that 'I want it all' and 'Bohemian Rhapsody' are now stuck in my ear for eternity it was good, I guess.

To even top it I spontaneously agreed to meet someone I met on a dating site. Within an hour I got ready and went over to his place. I cannot express what a big step that was for me in the first place! He was nice, it wasn't too awkward, but... well... I started crying when I got in my car and continued all night, but I should be proud that I did what I did the past three days, right? I mean, considering that I hardly left my flat since May these are very huuuuge steps. So go me...

*gulp*. i've found out today that me and my team have made it through to the semi finals of the universities business competition i posted about before. i'm terrified and delighted: i really *don't* expect us to progress much further than this (and tbh i'd have massive ethical misgivings if we did) - but it's given me cause for quite a big rethink about how much i have allowed this 'SA' thing to hold me back in the past, and how much can potentially be achieved if you are prepared to change your thinking patterns even slightly.

i really want to say a massive thank you to anyone on SAUK who's ever given me any form of encouragement and support. and to let you know it's made a difference. tonight i am thinking perhaps with enough bloody-minded perseverance there really might be a light at the end of the tunnel. keep on keeping on people. x
