Yesterday, I did a presentation on Borderline Personality Disorder at one of the out-of-town centres. Only a couple of people from the out-of-town centre took part. Other than them, there was me, my Peer Support worker and a friend who goes to my in-town BPD group. I was a little disappointed at the small turnout. They said that their Team Lead was off so they didn’t know about us coming to do a presentation that day. They marked on the calendar for next month that we’re doing a BPD Group there on the 25th of May. Hopefully, if it’s on their calendar, more people will show up next time.
In other news, my son started having chest pains last night while watching TV. We called the ambulance and I went to the hospital with him. His dad and grandmother met us there. We got there around 7:30 and saw the doctor around 10:00. They want him to wear a halter monitor for 24 hours next week so they can check his heart. They think that there’s nothing to worry about. He’s gotten the odd chest pains over the years but not too bad and they usually go away within a couple of minutes. This lasted for about ten minutes. His lips were pale, he was sweaty. I’m glad they think there’s nothing to worry about. I’ll be even more glad when we get the results from the halter monitor though.
I saw my daughter for a few minutes today. She was in town and stopped in to say “hi”. The baby is 5 lbs. now. He should be coming home soon. They got a stroller and a few other things for him today.
That’s all for now. Till next time,

Hello folks and welcome to the seventh instalment of my #letstalkabout series. In case you missed the last one, let me give you a quick overview. I love reading blog posts about real-life events, opinions that differ to mine or people sharing their little secrets. Once every month, I will have different stories, opinions, comments, real-life experiences and secrets (hopefully!) showcased on my blog. These will either be… View Post

The Thursday before last, when my Community Peer Support worker took my daughter and I to see my grandson, we got some pictures of me holding the baby. This past weekend, I visited my parents and sister and shared the pictures with them. They loved them (of course!)
I showed my sister the plastic canvas project I’m working on for my Craft Group. It’s a magazine holder I’m gonna give to my daughter for her baby books. I tried to show my sister how to do it the way I was taught. She picked it up pretty well.
I got behind in checking my emails this weekend. I’m just getting caught up now. I didn’t post a lot on here while I was getting used to the laptop, but now I’m posting more.
I hope everyone is having a good day/night wherever you are. Till next time,

It’s amazing all the things you think about at 2:00 in the morning when you wake up and can’t go back to sleep! I saw my counsellor yesterday and updated her on everything that’s been going on with me and my family. I told her that she could close my file so we’re meeting again in two weeks to go out for a coffee and celebrate. I’m so nervous! I’ve been in therapy for about twenty years now. It feels kinda like being on a high wire without a net, even though I still have support but it won’t be the same. I have my Peer Support worker, plus everyone at the Peer Support Centre, plus my friends and family. But it feels like the end of an era. (Cue dramatic music).
My daughter and her boyfriend are moving today (tomorrow? It’s 2 am.) My dad is gonna rent a trailer and help them move. He can’t really lift anything but he’ll be the driver. He had a trailer. I guess he just got rid of it. That’s my dad, always working on trailers and lawn tractors, fixing them up then selling them. He loves to keep busy! I hope the move goes smoothly for them.
I’m not sure what I’m up to tomorrow (today?) I don’t know if they’ll need my help or if I’ll just go to the Peer Support Centre. I’ll do what I usually do – wing it.
My son’s missed the last couple weeks of school due to a bad cold. He’s gone all this week so far. He has to get an immunization on Monday or else be suspended from school for a month. He has to get this needle before they’ll let him into high school. He needs a check-up too. He hasn’t had one for quite a while. My husband will probably take him to the doctor. He needs to talk to the doctor too. He hasn’t been to the doctor in a long time either.
The grandson’s weight is up to 4 lbs., 7 oz. I can’t wait until he gets to come home. I can’t wait to cuddle with him every chance I get. My Peer Support worker took my daughter and I to see him last Thursday and I got to hold him for the first time! My husband and son haven’t got to see him yet, except in pictures.
That’s all for now. It’s now 2:50 in the morning and I should try to get back to sleep. If I can’t, I’ll probably be on my Facebook Page. Till next time,
