I would like to thank all who attended our meeting at the beginning of December and I would also like to express my sincere appreciation of all the support I gained from that evening. I had had a particularly tough day, so it was really useful for me to be able to share some of my difficulties. Thank you for listening. I felt much better after and am still in a reasonably good frame of mind, even though the joys of pre Christmas stress is ever present!
The Christmas Social went well I hope everyone who came had an enjoyable time. Great to catch up with some folks who we have not see for a while, as well as those we do.
We will be organising a Winter Walk over Christmas and New Year, with a pub stop for anyone who is interested in coming along or meeting up for the Pub bit. So watch out for that.
I hope that 2016 will be good year for YourSpace. We have some exciting new ventures coming up and lots to look forward to. We have also linked up the Horses Helping People with Anxiety and Depression, Onlyforward OCD and The Beacon a new local charity. These groups offer so much support too and it's good to link in with them. As a Group YourSpace has a lot to offer too. The mutual support and understanding the Group creates is invaluable. Lots of individual friendships have developed over the Groups history. These connections widen and act as a means of support in their own right, which is fantastic. Individuals supporting each other, generating a bond. The Group not only understand the difficulties that come from Anxiety and Depression, but also reach out to those who feel isolated and alone. YourSpace cannot rid you of your problems, but it is there to support you through them.
It only remains for me to wish all who read this Blog that Christmas is good to you and the VERY VERY BEST for 2016!
Next meeting with me at Barlow Road will be on Monday 4th January 2016.
