I don't know if it is the 'birthday' or not, but I've been in quite a low for the last few days. Struggling to wake and to eat (at least eating less means venturing out to get food less). It's also been very hot and although I used to love hot days, for some reason I know struggle with them. Perhaps it's the feeling that it's a 'lovely day' so I 'should' go out and enjoy it.
At this point (since this is the first entry and I haven't yet managed to write the 'summary of things before now') I should mention that overall my bad days seem to last for shorter periods and occur less frequently than they were 6 months ago, and I'm sort of managing to be gentle on myself and know that the bad days will eventually pass.
