Mon 7 October
Today is a big day for me. I have found the courage to locate a group of local people who suffer from the same type of mental ill-health as me. As I write this, I am on the upper deck of a wi-fi enabled bus (I do a lot of my blogs from here) heading to my first meeting.
Anxiety is tearing away at my arms and legs, but I’m going anyway.
What’s the worse that can happen?
Wish me luck…
I am very pressed that I went. I nearly didn’t, but one final skirmish with the anguish bubbling deep inside, gave me the steel to walk through the entrance. Phew, I’m exhausted, but feeling good. I met such patient, understanding and kind people!
