Last week I made a list of all the things that were making me feel bad about myself. It came to 3 sides of A4 (in large handwriting) and had wibbles within the subcategories of Work, Studying, Driving, Money, Weight, Relationships, Around the house, Socially and Disorganisation. Today I typed it up, and added to a couple of bits of it. I think in some ways it should help, and that it might be useful when talking to the psychiatrist at Addies (if I ever get another appt) but having done it I'm not feeling terribly perky.

I can't think of nearly as many things which make me feel good about myself. The hair makes me smile when I look in the mirror. Richard is lovely, and I have lots of good friends. I've been enjoying all the books I've been reading. I have a nice family, and Richard's family are lovely too. And the weather is wonderful. It's a longer list than I thought once I put my mind to it.

I think I'm going to go sit in the garden again for a bit.
