Went to the surgery this morning for a blood test, but found they should,t have called me in! One wasted morning! :eek:

My first councelling workshop tomorrow. Its a Group Session to explain what CBT is all about. Should be interesting, but feel a bit nervous! Hope its a better morning than today! I'll let you know.:wink:
Love Sue

    Well, at least it got me out, even if all I did was 'people watch' and try and guess what was wrong with them! :oops: Oh, I've let out my secret hobby!!! :oops: :oops:

    OOOh, I love people watching!!!!! Sooo much fun :grin:

    I had CBT last year and found it to be of enormous benefit. Hope you find it half as worthwhile.

    One of my favourite things as well....people watching....its funny so many of us.
    I do it all over the place....if I'm sitting having coffee somewhere.....I wonder what they work at/do they work/what sort of a house do they live in etc,
    Never really thought about doing it in surgeries or hospital....how daft can I get.,.....well will have plenty of time on Mon

    I people watch too - it's amazing how we cheerfully sit there creating lives for these strangers and also possibly coming to some hugely false conclusions about them based on their appearance: that sweet white-haired old lady could shortly be due in court charged with nuisance behaviour and that heavily tattooed, pony-tailed biker could do massive amounts of voluntary work for charity. We just don't know.

    Most of the time, however, I am thinking 'Bloody lucky beggurs, striding along without any pain.'

    I hope today is interesting woodbon, I hope this CBT will help you in the long-run and that you enjoy doing the course. DD
