It’s sunny in Lancaster*, and it’s sunny in my mind**. Today there is hope.
I’m not saying I magically feel better, or even that I do feel dramatically better, but today I feel like there is hope for the future.
There is hope because I have started my CBT. There is hope because I’m trying a new medication. There is hope because at the end of the month I will see the psychiatrist. And there is hope because for the first time in a long time, I am looking forward to something.
Last night I booked some flights to Germany for during the Easter holidays. I will be going to stay with Sheep who is doing her year abroad this year! I am excited to visit the place where she is so happy, to see the sights of a part of Germany I haven’t been to before, and to spend time with one of my best friends on holiday!
Let’s hope this enthusiasm stays!
There is hope. We will all get through this!
*If you’ve ever been to Lancaster, you’ll know how unusual this is!
**And if you know me, you’ll know how unusual this is too!
