I have lots of things to moan about but for today I am keeping things locked away. If I write about how depressing life is today it is going to drag me down into the abyss and instead I am going to find some positives to talk about.
The poetry book is almost done, well it is done but I am not going to publish until Saturday in case anyone wants to submit, although the last day I will accept submissions is 30th August. I am really excited about this project because I had the idea, raised awareness and as of today 40 people have sent me a total of 72 poems!
Hopefully it will sell a few copies to raise some money for Mind as well but even still I am following through (not in the IBS way!) with ideas and making things happen.
Naturally I have added the link to my other book in the back of the poetry book, it may well bring me some extra sales and if so then wohooooo!
I am majorly stressed over this Atos medical assessment but trying hard to block it out until nearly the time, hard as it is. Keeping myself busy with writing will help. Trying not to “sweat the small stuff” as my friend Kay would say because at the end of the day it is only going to make me worse.
So an “update” of sorts for y’all I am battling and staying afloat albeit just about but it’s better than being under the water!
There is only half a smile plastered on my face, the other half is a genuine smile which is half more than normal LOL
