This blog is part of my recovery, and I would like it to remain a safe place for me to share parts of myself and my life that people close to me may or may not know. As a result, while I'm not going crazy with privacy settings, I do ask that if you find this on your own and suspect you may know me, please respect my privacy by checking with us before reading any further.

Sanguine Saturday from my week away

Last week's Sanguine Saturday, finally being posted on my return!

Success Stories:
I was honest with my treatment team, even when I knew I wouldn't like the consequences.
I tidied my bedroom.
I kept myself safe (even when I didn't want to).
I asked for help from someone I don't normally "lean" on.
I accepted things graciously.
I told my nurse something relevant to my treatment that I hadn't previously shared with her.
I asked my nurse for a hug because I wanted one (huuuuuuuuuuuuge thing!)
I started making more solid moving plans.

* Giraffes
* Fruit
* Rice/Corn cakes
* Coke Zero
* Soft toys
* Felt pens/colours
* People liking something I did

If everyone else has worth, who is to say I don't, too?
People have no reason to lie about liking osmething I did.
It's okay to do things to keep myself safe and to look after myself.

Take care of yourselves until next time, and may we all find our own small fences along the way.


  1. Hey Chrysalis,

    I like your success stories, though it sounds as though you have had a bit of a rough time. Was it a good week away or a not so good one? I hope I am not being nosey.

    I hope you are okay, anyway.

    Love P xx

  2. Hi lovely,

    I think all in all, it was a good week away - certainly the product of it is good - but things definitely have been a little rough over here. I don't think you're being nosey at all, actually I appreciate that you thought of me.

    I'm planning to write a post about what's been going on for me in the last little while sometime over the next week or so -- but I find that I'm ashamed a bit, and it's holding me back.

    I hope things are going alright for you.
