Keeping safe

These are the things I need to do for the next week or so:
Reread the Mindfulness book
Take 4mg Valium in the evenings
Phone my CPN if I am not sure I am coping
Read my list of grounding techniques daily and decide if I need to do any of them
Try to cut down on the amount of alcohol I am drinking - but don't use this as a stick to beat myself with
Try to do one thing mindfully each day (making a cup of tea in the morning)
Keep going to body balance classes
Use the sleeping tablets to help me sleep
Try to do some of my quilting each week

D, my CPN, is being great. She's offered to call me tomorrow afternoon to check I am OK.

Great book.
