08/04/2020 Apart from the book club, today has been a blur

I woke up this morning with a tight chest and a headache (so what is new). When I looked on Facebook a good friend of mine Tracy had put a post on saying she had been struggling a little bit and was asking if anyone wanted to join an online book club as the book club that she was going to at work had finished. She had accompanied her post with a picture of 2 of my favourite books by Brene Brown. So I was hooked, and I wanted to do something positive to lift my mood. So I started a private group on Facebook called Doris’ Wholehearted Book Club. The premise of the group is to share what you are reading and the books you love. It is all about sharing and supporting each other through what we love. So far there are about 30 people in the group. If you haven’t joined seek it out and request to join. There are no themes, it is just a space to share what you are reading, and to be inspired by what other people are reading. Lets see how many people across the country and even the world we can bring together.

So that was my positive action today, the rest of the time I have laid on the sofa, feeling breathless and sore but positive and optimistic. The sun is shining, people are kind and lovely and I will be feeling better soon. Today to be honest though has passed me by as I have been sleeping a lot of the afternoon.

I am reading 2 books at the moment by the way, well trying anyway. I am struggling to pay attention for more than a few minutes. But those books are a nerdy leadership book called Turn The Ship Around by David Marquet and La Belle Sauvage (Book of Dust Volume 1) by David Pullman. If you want to get involved please join the group and share some love.

I know it is not a long one but I am knackered and this has taken me ages to write. I promise as soon as I am feeling better I will make them longer and hopefully a little more interesting.

  1. I’m on day 13 of oral steroids (plus the usual inhalers), and day 3 of double dose abx, quite frankly I’m totally fed up, very sore, breathless and more irritable than I can ever remember. I feel useless and completely lost. But your book club has been the highlight of my day, I would have loved to be an English teacher, sadly not clever enough, books are my next love. Thank you for being a glimmer of light in an otherwise dark day. Take care
