then off to my Chiro fir a much beeddd adjustment.

Sounds like a busy week @BlueBay , which is probably a good thing.
Ive read that Melb have really bad air quality right now with smoke coming in from East Gippsland fires. You are right to avoid outdoor exertion for now. I hope you are able to get into the outpatient program. Its good to see that you are using this down time constructively.

It's wise to stay inside while the air is so smoky - I had a bad cough yesterday and felt really exhausted - I went to the pharmacy in the afternoon and got some cough medicine and that has helped a lot - maybe it would help you too if you have asthma - as do I.
A new framework of activity seems to be starting - I remember when I had a huge change in my life I didn't know what to do at first - really strange feeling - but regular life soon took up it's demands and reality set in - life does go on and you are finding this out now
That black-and-white thinking you have does take over - life is never all black or all white - you are not unemployed - you are between jobs - you might ask what the difference is but it's plain to me - you have plans - you need a spell in hospital and when you get out you will be looking for work and that can be a full-time job - it's a bit harder because of the fires - the ecomony will take a hit for a while - but life will pick up again - it's not as disastrous as it seems - just a huge challenge and your BPD makes it all seem worse than it is
But if you hold onto being okay you will be - maybe you need to redefine "okay" - nothing is ever perfect -
But your son doesn't need to be rude to you - that is not acceptable behaviour -
And pain will seem to be worse when the air is so smoky - I understand that - it's time to take things easy for lots of reason
Thinking of you though - all the time
