Reading Challenge 2016

This year I want to read more books but I also want to widen the range of books I read. As a result I had a few searches on google and found this book challenge on the Modern Mrs Darcy’s blog which I feel is achievable but gives me direction with my choices of books.

The aim is to read 12 books, in 12 categories over 12 months,

The categories are:

A book published this year
A book you can finish in a day
A book you’ve been meaning to read
A book recommended by your local librarian or bookseller
A book you should have read in school
A book chosen for you by your spouse, partner, sibling, child or bff
A book published before you were born
A book that was banned at some point
A book you previously abandoned
A book you own but have never read
A book that intimidates you
A book you’ve already read at least once

Are you completing a reading challenge, if so what types of books do you have to read?

CSA Journey: Seeking Help

So recently I have found things really hard to deal with and I feel like I am burying my head in the sand a bit. So I went to see my doctor on Monday it was the first time I had been to the doctor since moving. I hate going to the doctors – it makes me really anxious, I’m terrified of going so normally I avoid going at all costs.

It was embarrassing because I ended up getting in quite a state, I was crying as I explained how bad my head was… is. I’m so thankful it was a female doctor. I don’t think I would have opened up so much if it was a male doctor. I also wasn’t sure if going to the doctor was the right thing to be doing.

She gave me some numbers for different people who could help me so that I could go back to counselling. She also gave me some tablets for depression and anxiety – although I haven’t touched them yet… they scare me – I don’t want how I’m feeling to get worse which the Dr explained probably would happen before it gets better.

I need to make an appointment to go back in 2 weeks so she can see if I have made any progress I guess and to see how I’m doing.

It is daunting that I am feeling like this. But hopefully I am taking the right steps to head back into a better place mentally.

We shall see how it goes and I will keep you all updated.
