    Today was a bit of a stressful day but I'm feeling quite positive from it:

    1) My partner has decided today to leave the job that has been really impacting his mental health (no support, 12-14 hour days). I am happy for him though because I finally want him to be happy and I think whatever he chooses to do next will have a really positive impact on his mental health.

    2) For my family for supporting me and my partner. They are always amazing.

    3) For my brother who has been giving me advice about the course I am studying!

    Today I am grateful:

    1) That my partner has been feeling so much happier since he put in his resignation. That workplace was not healthy for him (even though he tried to push through for the past 8 years!)

    2) For my family, for supporting us through this time. We have to financially reset but luckily I am currently living at home so this is the time that we are able to do this without too much worry.

    3) For my friends, for being patient with me when I am busy with studying

    Hi Doolhof!

    Home grown peaches sounds amazing! That really made me think of peach crumble yum!

    1) I am grateful that my partner has been feeling so much happier now that he has resigned from a toxic/unhealthy workplace

    2) That I am able to live at home while I sort out my career! I am so supported.

    3) For my cute pug who is always happy to see me

    Thankful for:

    - These forums.

    - Online friends since I have none in person & never have, probably never will either (1 in another state & the others in America).

    - Relaxing smells (Lavender, etc).

    Lucky Sleepy.

    I wish I and many others who are unfortunate not to have good medical help, had better help.

    Good luck with the therapy group. I wish I could join one but there's none here.
