It’s hard to believe that a week ago I was walking around Prague!
This week seems to have flown by, not helped by the fact that on my first day back my youngest injured himself and had to go to A&E! Tuesday we were at Alder Hey Children’s hospital and we went back this morning for a check-up. All is looking well though which is a relief. 😊
Prague is a beautiful city. If you like culture, history, museums and shopping I would not hesitate to go. From Manchester the flight is less than two hours. I’m not sure I would agree that Prague is inexpensive but it is certainly cheaper than Paris or London. Expect to pay City prices.
I’m not going to bore you with the details, but I saw some beautiful sites, ate some delicious food, drank too much alcohol and made a new friend. I also got a little male attention which massaged my ego nicely. Nothing else to report on that front though.
I’m feeling good. The trip seemed to blow the final whispers of darkness away from my mind. If I can get a train on my own… If I can walk around Prague on my own.. Well, I’m doing alright.
I have just over a week until I go back to work and I have made that decision. I can’t say I am excited to go back – I certainly don’t want to feel stressed again- but now I am well there is no point living a life I can’t have. I can’t be a stay-at-home mum and I’ve known that for fourteen years.
Instead, I sort of feel like I am chomping at the bit and ready to renew and restart my life. I’ve got a week to make preparations to make sure that happens properly, so I don’t end up in the same rut. Ironically, today I am facing the complete opposite problem to a few weeks ago. I want to go out today but know that I need to use my time wisely to sort a few things out before the weekend. Sigh.
And so to anyone who is just starting their recovery journey from depression and anxiety, know that you will get there. You will find yourself again, the days will be brighter and life will become good again.
Take care everyone and I hope you have a good weekend. X
