Every now and again, we all have a bit of a bumpy ride. I am having one at the moment. My mood is very low, and I have a swollen, infected eyelid. It's hard to keep positive when I am feeling so raw and paranoid. I am proud that I haven't fallen back into my old, self-harming ways yet, but its been a near thing. Maybe its just the windy weather we are having. My grandmother always used to get crabby when it was windy, and Pat does too. I quite like it, though. It's always been 'school trip' weather to me, because whenever I went on a school trip as a child, it always seemed to be on a blustery day. I've got a holiday and an exciting adventure to look forward to in the coming weeks, and I am going out with friends this afternoon. I just have to keep going, and hang onto the phrase that has been floating around my head for weeks now:
This too shall pass.
