Blimmin' 'eck, it's been a while! Well, what's been happening? Still living in nice little one bed house that feels like it's getting smaller. It's a great place but we're starting to need more room. We've got two cats now, plus both my other half and I need space for our work/projects (him with his computer, me with my art, writing and faith.)
Finally got a move on with getting my various illnesses dealt with. I have an official diagnosis of Conversion and Dis-associative Disorders. Conversion basically means that when I get stressed or anxious, my brain makes my body suffer. For example, I was stressed recently about a pending court hearing and couldn't get out of bed for two days. I knew what I was stressed about but could not move my legs. The dis-associative thingy makes my brain shut down whenever I can't cope with a situation, am depressed or tired. It can happen at any moment. I'll be sat there with people and will completely blank them. I'm often suddenly realised I'm watching a movie but have no idea how I put it on or how much of it I have missed. It's a bit like having split personality disorder - only there's no other personality coming out...I just disappear.
Anyhoo, I'm now in therapy for that. It actually starts next Thursday because I've been transferred to a more specialist unit on the other side of the city. It's a pain to travel to, especially as my other half isn't allowed in the sessions with me. Poor thing has to sit on his tod for two hours then drive me back home before going to work. I'm also not allowed to get pregnant whilst in therapy or they will cancel it. They say it's dangerous to be having this sort of therapy mixed in with pregnancy hormones...I could get worse. I suppose it makes sense to wait until we're both earning a wage or OH gets a better paid job.
The big W day is fast approaching on March 19th then honeymoon in a log cabin in Wales. I know it's not the Hawaiian or New York trips out well off friends have had but it's going to be so romantic. It's up in the mountains so I'm hoping there will be snow. We'll have a log fire, sauna and jacuzzi, plus our kitties can come with us.
What else? Oh, I lost my job in May 2010 but can't legally discuss it too much. Never mind, now I can focus on becoming an author and freelance writer once I've cleared my head problems.
