Weeklies & Monthlies

all posts on what occurs weekly – High Five Friday and Plans for the Week Ahead

April Goals

How did Marchs goals go? I spent my month signed off sick from work. My anxiety and depression have been really aggravated by a whole bunch of things but as luck would have it, my CBT started at the very end of February. Throughout March we looked into Behaviour Therapy to help me identify aspects of my anxiety and see why my mood was so low. What I have learnt in CBT has been extremely positive and will be discussed at a later date – Mental Health Anxiety posts will be live in early May time. Having that time off work…

March 2019

The Close of a Chapter   Stoma wise; it’s still been a difficult time for little stoma. She probably is acting out before upcoming surgery, because I am back to daily changes. Thankfully, when I got my prescription review with my GP, I had made my decision on what barrier to keep using, and I even got to add in my strong barrier – my applicator one, not just the wipes – to my repeats. I am very happy knowing that I can continue to manage my stoma with adequate supplies. Not just for now, when I am going to…

I’ve had one blip – I had to talk to First Response Mental Health to help me settle…

Being Kept on My Toes   Stoma wise; prescription of my supplies has now been updated but still having some issues. One is the lack of barrier being authorised by my GP – on my to do list for an appointment for my ‘medication and appliance review’ with a GP in mid March. I do have some barrier to use in the meantime; samples from other companies because my previous favourite has been failing alot these last couple weeks. So, whist I wait for my repeat Px to be updated correctly, I will find a new product that suits. So that is my…

February Goals

How did Januarys goals go? January was a tad more unpredictable than I had anticipated. Whilst my health was still being managed, I found that the pain I was in was overwhelming too much of my other aspects of my life – my house, my relationship, my hobbies, my friendships, my work. So, I took some time to focus on me. The focus however, has been around planning ahead for some big health changes. So despite all my good intentions to keep my health on an even keel, it became number one priority. Let me stress here that I know my…
