October '16

Hello, hello long time no speak. On my previous blog I would write up a monthly catch up post. I knew I wanted to carry this on to Laced Thrills as it was like a little personal diary however it's taken me longer to get this up then I would have liked. I usually like to post my catch ups on the 1rst of each month but to be honest I've been struggling with the dreaded m-word. (Motivation)
October has been a strange little month. I found myself becoming inexplicably lugubrious and found that my OCD had begun to weigh down on me again in a way that I hadn't felt in a while. I think I may write a post on my OCD in the future but for now I will keep it short. Essentially for me it makes me struggle to do simple tasks because I don't feel like I'm doing them 'right' I will do things over and over again because otherwise it makes me feel panicky. Sometimes I will struggle to even get up. Towards the end of the month I began to slowly lift myself out of the clutches of OCD but of course it was sods law that I would catch a stomach bug making it difficult for me to eat- not fun for a girl who really likes her food! 
Despite my personal struggles I've still tried my best to enjoy what is usually one of my favourite months and seasons. I got my hair refreshed and am considering a burgundy dip dye for the winter, made the most incredible Nutella and sea-salt cookies and got into the Halloween spirit by carving a pumpkin and binge-watching Scream Queens. These all might seem like quite trivial things but I'm all for self-care and doing the little things to help you on your way to feeling better.

How was your October? Would you like me to write a post on OCD?
