Hi all.

I hope you don't mind, delete if not appropriate.

I just am just going to do a weekly blog on feelings (physical and mental) to learn about myself at the moment.

Feel free to comment.

See if there are triggers...etc.

Hi MainlyG,

Sounds like a great idea. Monitoring your condition is really helpful in managing it.

Look forward to seeing if this helps you out.

Been feeling pretty crap the last few weeks.

Actually thinking of eating/drinking the way I did when I was happiest (approx 5 to 10 years ago)

5 to 10 Years ago I'd basically have a few drinks between 6pm and 10pm. Maybe 4 or 5.

Tried to cut down and go really healthy on food and drink during 2021 which seemed to make me sadder.

Monday morning-worked from home. Did a bit of housework, kept busy.

Monday afternoon- worked my 2nd job, had 2 coffees...my first in 9 months after giving up.Was pretty up and about and happy for a few hours.

Coming down aa little now after tea break with back ache and pains which has been happening for 6 to 9 months around this time most nights.

Going home for a couple of beers soon to relax (gave up alcohol for a few months earlier this year (was ok but missed a nightly 2 or 3 beers or 2 glasses of wine)

All in all, not a bad day.

Having a relaxing morning coffee listening to music (2nd day of coffee after giving up)

Feeling quite good.

A slight sore back as is often the norm the last 9 months unfortunately.

About to start my home job, before heading to afternoon job after.

Noticed I tightened up around the hips before I started work today.

I noticed someone else says this has been happening to them about before work.

Notice I'm slightly anxious walking in.
