I went out and met some friends. I felt a bit self-conscious and anxious about getting there but I distracted myself on the journey and it wasn't too bad. I would have kicked myself if I hadn't gone but I did so I'm happy.

I went to volunteer again at the allotments and planted some beans and parsnips. I'm learning how to garden and grow things and i'm mixing with other people so it's great. It's certainly helping my self-esteem.

I managed to study a second language for 4 strait days now. I missed a class because I was in the hospital, and the manager of the school sent out a survey asking about the teachers, the instruction, the enthusiasm of the other students, etc. Anyway, I thought the survey meant the course was over but it wasn't. I saw a classmate at the gym and he wondered where I was, so I explained it to him. Regardless, I am happy to have studied so hard these past few days, and currently I am doing one week's worth of material in a day. It's tough and I could have quit but I am persevering, and I am determined to excel at my studies.

I also enrolled in another class at a different school. I will be taking architectural drafting. (I took a course on residential blueprint reading, but it was not for credit and was considered a general interest course). I start my new course next week and I am determined to not quit nor let anxiety get in the way. In addition, I have been going to the gym regularly despite recovering from a broken hand.

And wet she rose from the lake, and fast and fleet went she
One half the form of a maiden fair with a jet black mare's body

And loud, long and shrill he blew til his steed was by his side
High overhead the grey hawk flew and swiftly did he ride
Saying "Course well, my brindled hound, and fetch me the jet black mare
Stoop and strike, my good grey hawk, and bring me the maiden fair"

I'm so glad to hear you're sticking to learning another language. You did a fairly good job with the writing.
And it's good you're focusing on all these classes and activities, it's good to get out of your comfort zone little by little, I'm happy for you.

And the silent night will shatter
From the sounds inside my mind.

Today was the first time I had a panic attack when with my mentor and she handled it well.

I personalized my shampoo (it seemed interesting to try) and it came today I'm really excited! :3 it smells like peaches.

Something happened today that at the moment I am not thrilled about but I believe in the end it will turn out to be a blessing in disguise...too much time wasted and I need to focus my energy elsewhere!

I managed to walk for 1 hour in spite of being tired. I focused on my breathing during my walk and think of positive feelings and thinking. I recited positive affirmations to myself throughout my walk.

I recommend anyone to do the same.

Long convo with a family member that might help bring us closer.

On enhanced mobile I don't receive notifications besides pms. Apologies if I don't respond.

Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving
