ickle update

Hey all

Not really been myself these last few weeks which I'm putting down to the tablets. My mood seems to be all over the place a lot of the time, and my motivation is a bit hit n miss.

I'll get back on form soon hopefully, fingers crossed.

Boots (the chemist) left me in disbelief recently

I've grown quite partial to their meal deals and their duck in hoisin wrap, but as I made my way to the till I saw it.

All the 'trash' mags were where you queue up, so you're bombarded by all these magazines telling you to diet (and not just women's mags, there was a few men's mags there too). Then, if you survive that onslaught and are waiting for the till number to be called, you get bombarded by sweet things (chocolate and such).

If I'd have had more time I would have tried to speak to the floor manager just to find out why they've set it up like that.

But if anyone is passing Boots on Fargate/High St in Sheffield then
  1. be wary if you want to purchase anything at the main tills
  2. see if you can find out any good reason for it
I would've expected better of Boots

Playing catchup

Hey all

I've been meaning to post all week but the days seem to have all merged into one :(
I'm now 2 weeks in to taking Sertraline and they don't seem to have made any difference, though I am getting different side-effects to the citalopram. Spent a few hours yesterday afternoon in the garden with my dad which was nice for us both - he's been more understanding lately.

Had some nice conversations on twitter -- I've been there quite a lot lately, in fact I seem to have made some nice 'friends' from Sheffield. They organise a pub crawl once a month called #cocktailcrawl which I said I would attend (BIG test for anxiety!). I've also been chatting with a fair few sheffield creatives/geeks which has opened up some possible social interactions.

So, despite feeling like I've spent far to much on the computer this week, it could have been my most productive week yet - we shall see!

Just getting ready to pick Ollie up

Hope you are all well and smiley :)
