Update 23/07/19: feeling better

I am much better today. Usually, I manage to keep a grip on my feelings and immerse myself in reading to try to hold the negative thoughts at bay. My weekly counselling sessions also help a lot as I am able to off-load to a neutral person.

Yesterday, everything came spilling out on someone who has their own issues and who puts them aside in order to support me. Lovely Husband is so very brave. He has had severe disabilities for many years but somehow manages to keep going for his family.

My sons also do their best to help me and friends, though they are online and not nearby, are also really appreciated. You know who you are! Thank you to everyone for your support.

I hope that I can pull myself out of the gloom and post more positively for the rest of the week. As you can imagine, I doubt whether I will be writing Outfit of the Day posts this week. We are having a heatwave in the UK and I find weather like this almost unbearable. At the moment, I am lying on my bed wearing not very much – a selfie would definitely be inappropriate! I really wish I could live near the sea!

I will have some books to write about tomorrow for the weekly Reading Roundup post.

Best wishes,
