Apologies if I'm teaching you to suck eggs, but maybe look into the Third Wave Cognitive Behavioural Therapies, which are becoming more prevalent these days? They kind of bridge the gap between traditional CBT and holistic, person-centred approaches such as mindfulness and would probably fit in that space between "traditional" psychotherapy and practices like yoga.

As an side, when I was in trauma therapy my counsellor praised yoga as having a higher success rate than many forms of therapy. ๐Ÿ‘

do you have any idea what "a11y" means?

please boost this, I'm actually curious

Woke at 3.30am, dozed until the noisy bastard birds decided to do their chorus and got up at 5am.

Reinstalled Collabora on my NextCloud and decided, somewhat inspired by the Itch "Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality", that I should stop pissing about and get at least something out there for my RPG project, so managed to slap down some 600 okay-ish words for the Quick Start Rules.

Not a bad start to the day, though I suspect I'm going to need a lot more coffee.

I'm thinking more and more that due to my health conditions I need a job that is home based/remote working, but I have no idea how to go about this.

I'm looking for something in Marketing, ยฃ20k+ a year (hopefully more as I have a Masters now)

Does anyone have any tips or leads?

Back to work after a week off.

Now, if only I could be arsed to get out of bed...

I've had a week off work and I'm only just relaxing (as I can tell by the emotionally overwhelming upsurge). Just in time for work on Monday, then! At least @Jo and I are binning a load of cruft this weekend so maybe my home workspace will feel less constricted by then.

Meh. The world is going to shit just like all my favourite bands and RPGs predicted in the 80s. But at least I have a skip.

S5E1 of Queer Eye was a fab way to start Sunday morning. I didn't cry, honest.

Just what I need tonight. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

I've enjoyed #talesfromtheloop so much, that I've asked my daughter to buy me the #rpg for my birthday.

UK peeps, Co-op health now has a free app for home delivery service for repeat prescription medication.

I'm currently trialling them to see if they have better access to this mythical transdermal patch supply that is meant to exist but my current pharmacist can't find. But also the queues for the pharmacy are looong and i'd rather avoid going in.

Man, I love #nextcloud, they are really fighting the good fight and nailing it. Also really happy to see them promoting @CollaboraOffice again overโ€ฆ I honestly forgot their namesโ€ฆ well, you know who I'm referring to

Stashed my Stellar into another wallet and finally deleted my Keybase account. Fuck Zoom.

Woke from a long, emotionally intense and overwhelming dream, with tears in my eyes. I need to brush it off or today will be difficult; except I don't want to brush it off, I want to remember it. Once again, thanks brain.


Woop. All tests came back negative. No idea what wiped me out, especially as @Jo has had the same symptoms. Back to "normal" then. ๐Ÿค”

Feeling improved, but gotta do four tests tonight (me, wife and both boys). Wife now making a Victoria Sponge as a reward to the family for swabbing tonsils and shoving said swabs up each of our noses (after 9pm). ๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ๐Ÿฐ

Well, not been feeling great for a few days (enough to be off work) and the mild cough has moved onto my chest overnight. Also hot, exhausted and aching. Called 111. A week for me, two weeks for wife (NHS worker) and kids, test kits in the post.

Frustrating as I've been absolutely anal about lockdown. Only thing I can think of is I went for a walk for the first time in seven weeks, last Thursday.

Bollocks. Ah well.
