Highs and lows…….

Quite a few mood swings over the last three days but I’ve managed to do more activities than usual…..
Friday 10th February
Woke up and reluctantly dragged myself out of bed as usual dreading the fact that I had to obtain a leisure pass, so I could take advantage of reduced rates at the gym. DH had ‘phoned the departments involved and had received a variety of answers about documentation I should take with me. I finally decided to take my driving licence and a copy of my state pension letter with my address on and set off in fear and trepidation. I’m not so happy with people when I’m met with problems and have been quite aggressive in the past, before I was on my present medication. As I drove to my local library, I began to feel more confident and quite ‘high’ in mood…..it had been a year or so since I had visited and was looking for ward to perusing the books and catching up on some local information. I needn’t have bothered…. the two librarians were so charming and explained why certain documents were allowed as identification and others weren’t and I was soon issued with my leisure pass. When I’m anxious, I tend to get very giddy and as I was shown the automatic borrowing system and other new things there, I was full of giggles and jokes and passed a lovely hour in the library much to my relief. The attitude of the staff there made it much easier for me to cope with a situation that I often shun because of fear and distress at what MIGHT happen. When I returned home, I was so tired that my mood lowered and I became a bit ‘snappy’ with DH…….he responded with a cup of tea for us and a chance for me to calm down 🙂
