That was nice of your boss to comment on your work like that. Sounds like you need the rest at the moment.
now hand over the tea bags and we won't have any trouble.... :police:

I'm glad that you're feeling a bit better.
Hopefully the blood test result will be OK.
It's OK to just socialise on the weekend, if you over do it you'll end up feeling bad again. :hug1:

I had a migraine today, luckily stopped it getting bad by taking prescription meds early on but feel very tired and generally a bit unwell. Itís my nephews 21st birthday today and I was supposed to go to his party but Iíve not gone. I just wanted to get into my pjs and snuggle up for the evening.

Iím struggling with my feelings for the guy I work with. There are a million reasons why I shouldnít like him. He shows no sign of wanting anything proper to happen between us and he can be an absolute sh*t at times. But I canít seem to turn off my feelings for him. Today when I felt unwell at work all I wanted to do was cuddle him. Iím still chatting with the guy Iíve started messaging from the dating site, and he seems nice (although still no indication of us meeting yet), but I worry I canít let myself get close to anyone else while I still feel like this about A.  ::-\:

Iíve no plans for the bank holiday weekend. Lots of rest is in order. I quite like the thought that I have no definite plans so can do as much or as little as I want to.

Aww bless you. Sounds complicated. I don't think you will get what you need from that guy at work. I know you have feelings for him that cannot be simply turned off. It's difficult. Hope your nephew understands why you couldn't come. How is your mood now?

As Tucan has suggested, the work guy isn't going to give you what you want from a partner, so try and keep him nothing more than a bit of fun. You'll find your feelings can evaporate remarkably quickly when you get involved with someone else where the relationship is reciprocated.  :)

I agree with the others re relationship so I shan't say much but hopefully things will be better with the next bloke. Casual relationships can be fun but only if you're both OK with it.

Resting will make you feel better, spend some time away from people and the crowds. Maybe have a little pig out  too :),

I 100% know you are all right about A, heís never going to want things to work between us. I wish I could turn off my feelings for him.

Anyway, Iíve arranged a date with the other guy for tomorrow. Itíll be the first time I meet him. We are going for a Sunday lunch. Iím nervous! But I know Iíve no obligation to see him again if I feel like itís not going to work.

Iím sure my nephew was fine about me not going last night. They will have had a house full anyway and he was going out with his friends later on. My mum went and said it was good but they were mostly in the garden and it was very cold.

My mood is not too bad. Still having down times but better times too. I have a GP appointment on Wednesday so should get my blood test results back then, and I have an appointment with my recovery worker on Thursday.

It didnít work out with the guy. We met up and had lunch, it was pleasent, but I didnít feel any spark or chemistry between us and we mutually agreed not to continue.

Itís been an up and down week so far. Had blood test results back, prolactin is fine but cholesterol is too high. Dr wants me to really try to change my eating habits and lose weight to bring it down.

Saw support worker today. Iíve requested she asks my psych to change my AP. Itís very well known that this one causes weight gain, plus I feel that it is not helping with mood stuff as Iím quite low most of the time. Iím very flat most of the time, occasionally sad, often irritable. I know it is helping with irrational thoughts and paranoia but not mood. I see my CPN next Wednesday so hopefully Iíll have an answer as to what I could take in itís place.

Good luck with your cpn. At least you gave this guy a try.
