    Today I am thankful for

    My endocrinologist. I had an appointment with her today & she is so supportive. She will even ask how my mental health stuff is going & asks if I want to talk about it. Heck, my GP rarely asks

    Good results for my hard work. I’m on an insulin pump & continuous glucose monitor & my blood test results today were really, really good. Feeling proud of myself

    My boyfriend, I am so incredibly lucky to have his support ❤️

    I'm struggling to find something to be thankful for, or multiple things, right now.

    That’s ok mb20lover, some days are much, much harder than others.

    Everyone here is at different stages of their journey, you’re just at a different place along the road.

    It may take time, but one day you will find yourself in a spot where you have something to be thankful for.

    sending you a hug

    Lucky you have a nice town and think they're a nice bunch, clown of mine.

    I don't feel welcome in this town and I haven't since we moved here in 2018.

    Had another bad day - but, a few things to be thankful for I guess...

    1) Double J - and today has been replaying the 2000 hottest 100 plus some more, just finishing up now I think.

    2) BB online chat support - first time I had to use it, but glad it is there.

    3) All the support from ppl on here including a few threads which are helping me immensely.

    1. Feeling able to finally reply to an email.

    2. Getting to spend the day with good friends and realising that even though we don't get to catch up often nothing changes.

    3. Playing frisbee in the park.

    Today I am grateful:

    1) That my anxiety about going back to work tomorrow hasn't been too bad - it has been manageable. I have to admit that on Sunday thinking about work on Monday made me quite stressed.

    2) I am thankful that I was able to spend time with my family

    3) I know this next one is a very simple one but I am grateful that I was able to relax and take a nap! So underrated!
