Animals Mental health mental health blogger Therapy

I caught a bus to animal therapy.

Today was my first time on a bus alone in years and it was also meant to be my last farm therapy because I just can’t afford it!

But I spoke to the manager and I’m staying on one more month. I’m so happy!

I plan to bake cookies for Monday to share out as a thank you!

I did it. Xx

I seriously surprise myself sometimes!

🎉 Massive update! 🎉

Monday I got call asking if I would got to a job interview for Tuesday! (The next day) I only sent in the application on the Saturday!

I was so scared it was my first interview in six years!

My first proper interview!

As I was walking in to the interview it started to snowing, it was touching my face and I knew it was a sign from heaven!

I was really anxious!

But guess what I did it!

They verbally offered me the job!

I accepted!

I’m waiting for an email to confirm it!

I’ve got a job!

I’m so proud of myself. For the first time in my life, I’m proud I me!

Mental illness can not stop you carrying out your dreams! You may believe it does.

I believed it did but it doesn’t. You are in control, put in all the hard work and you can reach your dreams!

Dreams do come true!

Mental illness is not a barrier it is just a hill you have to climb up and over to reach the other side!

I’m not going to lie it’s really difficult but YOU CAN DO IT!

I believe in you!

I’m always here to talk to.

This blog has always been about my journey and recovery but I never ever believed I would get to the stage in my life where I’m able to start living not just surviving!

Life is worth it, you are worth it!

Mental illness does not stop you being who you want to be or reaching your dreams!

It’s all a journey!

🎉 Time to celebrate! 🎉

I can’t believe I cooked dinner all by myself!

This is very rare!

I struggle to follow instructions, and being around sharp and hot things. So this is a big deal!

I’m actually quite proud of myself!

I did it.

It was terrifying, I started at a car park and then drove from there home.,

I did it but I was so scared!

I’m hoping to get back in to it tomorrow and have a little drive.

I can drive I just need more confidence.

The sanctuary.

I look forward to these meetings each week.

It’s a religious based service.

Always brings me comfort. although it’s at the mental health hospital. That alone brings its own challenges me.
