This year seems to be flying by way too quickly so I’ve decided to write an April Diary. I think this is a good thing to add onto Abigail Talks About. 2020 is going to be here before we know it and I can’t even remember what I have done throughout the last 4 months as they have all merged into one.
April started off like most months, quiet. But this month seems to have been full of stress. My dog going in to be neutered, my aunty ending up in hospital and my anxiety levels being through the rough. Yet, throughout all this there has also been happiness.
Harry Potter Studio’s
I think one of the best things that has happened this month (maybe even this year), was going to the Warner Bros Tour London. Going to the Harry Potter studios is an experience I am glad I had. My Mom and myself received these tickets for Christmas off my sister and her boyfriend. We have wanted to go here since it first opened but just never got round to going. I’m so happy my sister got the tickets for when she did because we were able to see the new Gringotts section that had been opened. This was such a magical day and one that I want to be able to experience again.
So this month my puppy turned 6 months. This meant that he was old enough to be neutered. With how much of a kinky little thing he is, he definitely needed doing. The only down side was the stress that came with it. We had Geoffrey from a rescue centre when he was 10 weeks old. He is such a timid dog around new people and is scared of any little noises including other dogs barking. I couldn’t be the person who left him at the vets. He has never been on his own since we adopted him. My nan took him for me, and the whole day I was trying to see myself busy. It finally came to the time to pick him up, all he did for the rest of the day was cry and wimpier. he did not want to be on his own and was just begging for sympathy. But I don’t know what all the worrying was about, the next day he was running around, jumping all over the sofa and just wanting to play. The task was to try and keep him calm.
Aunty in hospital.
This was something that was not planned. Breaking up from work for two weeks off at easter and it starts with my aunty being rushed into hospital. What turned out to be stomach pains turned out to needing key hole surgery. So with the stress of looking after the pup after his op. I also had the stress of my aunty and helping to look after my little cousins whilst their dad was doing all the running around. Luckily she is now out of hospital and at home recovering. She is just now without a gallbladder.
My anxiety has been quite high this month. Luckily though I have not experienced any panic attacks. I think I am at a point now where I know when one is going to occur and I’m able to control them better. I have learnt this month that when I feel one coming along I can do three simple things; Go to the gym, take the dogs for a walk or do some yoga and mediate. This has helped to bring all my anxiety down this month. I never thought I would be the person to suffer from mental health but this year has decided to prove me otherwise. I feel like this has answered many questions from when I was younger.
I’m hoping that this is the type of post I can do monthly to reflect. This is something I never do and decided it is something that I should be doing. So until next time.
All the love,
