I'm pleased to say that things have improved a lot since my last post. I had an interview for a job that I'd applied for which is the first interview I've had in 10 years that wasn't for a IT related job! Exciting times and only slightly nerve-wracking. I think it went rather well so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll hear back from them soon.
My family and friends have rallied round as usual to help me in my dark times. It means so much to me and I'll be forever grateful for their continued love and support. I'm so lucky - I feel for anyone who is battling with depression and doesn't have friends or family to help, it must be incredibly difficult.
Over the Bank Holiday weekend I've had my Mam and Aunty down to stay with me and we have had such a wonderful time, I feel much happier. It's also nice for me to be able to cook and fuss over them as it will kickstart me into action for doing things now that they have gone. Just getting the flat cleaned and ready for their arrival felt like a monumental task which pretty much spanned the entirety of last week but now I feel motivated and ready to start looking at my to-do list again. It's amazing how things can change for the better in such a short space of time!
I still need to just take things one day at a time but it's nice to feel a bit more positive about life and particularly about the possibilities for a new career.
Watch this space! 😊
