  • I'm starting to see light again.

    I've been in a pit since I last wrote. A lot of my own old anxiety and panic was awoken by the events with the neighbour downstairs. I haven't been eating or sleeping, certainly not thinking, well.

    I've gone back to therapy.
    I knew it was time to go when I heard something inside me saying that I shouldn't go as it would take part of me away.

    I've still got the tear soaked tissues from the session on Monday in my handbag.
