Gemma's Person said yesterday she appreciates me talking about my life to my readers, perfect strangers.
I guess I probably do give away quite a few personal details - although not too personal, I'm not completely daft! - and thus open myself up to possible criticism or the potential for turning some of my readers off of following me. Well, that's never my intention - my life is what it is, I say as much or as little as I want to, and what I do say is a genuine reflection of my life and feelings.
I've mentioned on several (probably too many!) occasions that I get quite stressed and anxious sometimes, and suffer with depression occasionally - although fortunately the depression hasn't surfaced for a while. I came off antidepressants ages ago, although do still take medication for the anxiety and stress....my stress levels are HIGH at the moment. I have always found that talking and getting things off my chest, even if only on paper (so to speak), helps me a lot....I just brood and let things fester and dwell on stuff otherwise.
I guess I don't mind writing things on here because none of my family read my blog (most of them don't know I write one), nor do most of my real life friends....and those few who do are extremely good friends who I trust implicitly. So it's pretty anonymous really, despite having some very lovely blog readers (you know who you are) who I exchange emails with and who are as near to real life friends as it's possible to get without actually meeting face to face.
Our GP rang yesterday to say husband's latest wee sample (he has to provide one every week) shows he has yet another infection...I thought as much, he's showing the signs. So he's putting him on yet another different antibiotic, a stronger one which he says may have side effects. Lovely. (sarcastic face)
He's got an appointment (on Sunday of all days) for a CT scan, let's hope that gets to the bottom of it.
It's 1.00 am and I can't sleep. I made 3 cards yesterday - what a contrast, 2 sympathy cards for my cousins which had me crying as I did them, and a lovely wedding anniversary one.
