It’s 2011. I thought I had reached an age where New Years stopped being a big deal. It just meant I had to think a bit harder when I wrote the date. But this year it feels different. I feel optimistic. This is an unusual feeling for me. I’ve had depression on and off since I was 10 years old and I’m frequently a miserable cow, but this year feels different. It feels exciting.
The last few years have been hard. I’ve had to learn to accept that I am limited. I can’t do everything I want because my body is rubbish. Ok not totally rubbish, but I’ve had to accept not being able to drink alcohol and having plans mucked up at any point because of a Migraine. This has had a big effect on how I live my life and how I feel about myself, but anyway...
I feel optimistic. Good things are going to happen this year. I’m looking forward to tomorrow, and hopefully I will also enjoy today.
