You guys are awesome. So many lovely comments on my last post and other responses to it. Thanks x
It wasn't until Wednesday night that the anxiety subsided properly. In the meantime I had come across this on Pinterest.
It is a conceptual knitting pattern from Leafcutter Designs. I am a bit of a sky geek and love cloud watching. It struck me that much the same could be done to keep track of mood as well. This is something that is often advised by therapists since when you are anxious/depressed it's very hard/impossible to remember when you weren't and to stop yourself believing you have always and always will feel like this. Being at the same time a realist (not a great combination with depression) I knew that I was very likely to lose interest in something I was supposed to pick up and knit two lines of each day. This is when I let technology be my guide.
My love of Pinterest continues unabated. Here are some recent ones.
I have also been doing some knitting. Plugging away on the lovely cables of the Pinery Jumper.
I leave you with this final thought, also from Pinterest.
