I got an M.E research box for the pub, no idea why I didn't think of it sooner! I emptied a couple of old boxes we had that are no longer collecting, plus a load of change I had kicking about in jars and I've got over £42 to send already 💙
Just wanted to check in as I've been pretty much offline for a while. Had some bad family news and I've been in an awful place mentally and everything just got too much and I did the usual 'hide from everything and hope it goes away' when actually what happens is it all gets worse!
I've hidden from work and all my other commitments, ignored messages from friends and customers as I've been too anxious, depressed and stressed to deal with it, and generally been a useless mess. Of course doing that makes everything 10 times worse and makes me 10 times more anxious until I deal with it. So today I've put on my big girl pants and started sorting my shit out. Hiding is not the answer. I'm not afraid to admit that I deal with things badly, it's an important step in correcting it.
