Feeling Better


I’ve started my lectures properly now which is good because it means less time sitting around with nothing to do. I didn’t really put that much thought into the course itself compared to the social side of things when I was considering whether I could cope at university. Not to brag, but I’ve always been good at computing, it’s the only thing I’ve wanted to do as a career for as long as I can remember. I’ve spent countless hours reading about and messing about with computers and software. Since I’ve been unemployed for so long, I kind of lost my passion for it but now I am back in an environment where I can learn and make use of my skills again it has re-ignited my interest. I really can’t wait to get into the coursework and learn more.

I’m not sure whether it’s being in a new environment or the new medication, but I’m feeling a lot better than I was before I left for uni. I just hope it can continue.

  1. Sounds really good! I find this very inspirational reading, makes me remember that sometimes we have to push ourselves a bit more and do things we are afraid of. Since leaving uni I’ve been mostly keeping myself to myself which is very easy, but it is great to get out there and do something you love. I have actually signed up to a course. I started volunteering at a history centre and they said I can do a free local history course, so I signed up. Its not like moving away, but I’m scared especially since most of the people are older than me and I find it extremely hard to think about topic to talk about. But hopefully the excitement of learning something interesting will work for me like it seems to be for you!


  2. I’m happy to hear that you are feeling better. You said that you hope it lasts…well don’t think about the future. Just enjoy feeling better right now. It’s difficult to do, but staying in the “Now” is sometimes the best thing we can do for ourselves.

    Good luck and take care! 🙂

    Thanks 🙂

    Chunks: Yeah I understand that, I wish I could do it more often. I think a lot of my depressive thoughts come because I can’t stop thinking about the future and what bad things could happen.

    Good luck with your course mspennylane!
