January 1st, 2019 Update


Sorry I haven’t posted anything here in a while. I have been very busy with the holidays. I may not post quite as often for the next while. I’ll be helping out with my beautiful granddaughter. It’s been difficult since my husband passed away in June, managing the house all on my own. But I have help from my family and friends.

I have started some new projects which may take up quite a bit of my time as well. I’ll let you know how they go next month.

Hope you all have a great 2019! Till next time,

— Joyce.

BPD Survey


http://www.tara4bpd.org has developed a survey for people with Borderline Personality Disorder.  Check it out at the following link:  
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8GFYKF7

They would like to know what it’s like for BPD sufferers to be hospitalized and whether ER interventions are effective.

This will help TARA find out more about what those with BPD go through – their feelings, reactions, etc.  Thank you.

Discovering Bullet Journalling


Hello everyone!  Sorry I haven’t written a new post in a while, but I’ve been very busy with my new granddaughter and other life issues.  I have just discovered something called “Bullet Journalling”  If you don’t know what that is, here is a page on the system from the man who designed it:  https://bulletjournal.com/pages/learn

Basically, Bullet Journalling helps you to organize your life.  A Bullet Journal is like a day planner, a calendar and a diary all rolled into one.  But it’s so much more than that!  And it’s totally customizable.  You can add all different pages to it, and decorate it however you want – using markers, stickers, etc.  I have just started mine but I’m so impressed with it so far that I’m starting a group on Bullet Journalling at my local Peer Support Centre in the new year.  I’ll let you know how it goes.  Right now, I’m gathering together some supplies for the group, and the staff at the Centre are also going to purchase some supplies as well.

I think that Bullet Journalling will be a great way to stay in recovery.  And even improve how I’m doing, especially with all that’s going on in my life right now.

Let me know if you’d like some more information and I’ll share some great resources and articles with you.  Till next time,

— Joyce.
