I know there has been a lot of negativity around lately so I think when we have something good happen, it is important to celebrate each victory as it comes. This week has already started on a good, positive note, well for one, we're preparing to move out of the YMCA, which I think has been the reason we have been so unhappy these last few weeks. No matter how much you love someone, you can't live in each other's pockets without wanting to kill the other person.
Also, another positive thing that happened today was my chest behaved so well this afternoon, I was able to walk (the flatter way, through the Arrow Valley Park) from our flat in Church Hill, to our new place in Abbeydale. It was a bit of a walk, but it was worth it and I did feel good about myself afterwards. I wasn't aware just how much carrying that extra weight was making me tired and making the walk more difficult so the weight loss is a definite win there as well.
I was really proud of myself earlier when I managed that walk. I think I kind of windowed myself in the invalid role and didn't allow myself to see what exactly I COULD do, rather than focusing on everything I found hard. I am really looking forward to this move and getting out of the YMCA. Our rescue pup is settling in well and has been successfully bonded with my eldest boar, so Patch is now happy with Kadaj. When we move we want a small outdoors enclosure so that they can play and explore their new garden.
So it is goodbye YMCA, YMCA mentality and feeling sorry for myself.
