One of the things that I wanted to write about on this site was recovery and what’s involved in the recovery process. This is what I couldn’t find when I was looking for it. I found plenty about how to handle being very ill. I found plenty about how great it is to be in recovery. There was next to nothing about how to get from A to B.
So I’ve been thinking and thinking about what to say about this, but so far I’ve got nothing. I’ll have to work it out for myself first I guess. Unless anyone has any ideas?
At the moment I’m pretty much half way between where I was and where I need to be. I’m not feeling crazy all the time, I can look after myself again, take myself to the shops and whathaveyou, but I’m stuck at how to go any further than that. I’m not sure how to make my life bigger again.
I’m scared of being around sane people again, and I couldn’t really tell you why. I think maybe I’m scared I’m not ready, and that if I get back out there it’ll all go wrong again. I don’t know. I suppose I’ll figure it all out eventually.

It does, thank you. I’m just finding the being stuck part a little frustrating.
My experience of recovery is that you don’t get from A to B all in one go. It’s more like, A, A and a quarter (get stuck for a while) A and a half (get stuck again). You will figure it out eventually. You just have to keep taking the little steps when you aren’t completely stuck. Hope that makes some sense to you.
Good luck and take care, Wee Gee x
