today I felt proud because I left my room. It had been 2 weeks that I hadn’’t left my dark room for anything but necessities. Today I showered, got dressed, watered my plants, and laid in the front yard for an hour. I even called a friend and talked through some heavy emotions. Today was a great success.

Today I felt proud because I came home to my tenancy agency threatening to take me to court (over an error on their part) and I called them straight away to sort it out and even sat on hold for a while WITHOUT panicking, freaking out, stuttering or hanging up!! I hate phone calls SO MUCH. But I'm getting better at them! I am SUPER proud.

YEAH! GETTING IT DONE LIKE A BOSS!
