Things are mostly good, I'm out on the bike doing lowly six mile loops but am out every day.
What I'm struggling with is anxiety, especially when sat still and in bed trying to sleep. I don't know if anyone else has suffered anxiety or panic but when it gets hold you, it really does!
Anxiety is an awful thing to suffer with, and it can't help the other health issues. Can you get a referral for counselling? Or see someone who can help you with that? There are various methods that people can use to (sometimes, at least) get out of the sort of negative loops of anxiety. I don't suffer, but Mr. V does.
If it helps any, I love this thread. This thread is my absolute favourite on the forum. It is so inspiring to read your story and Rick's, and that of the other contributors to this thread. I'm sure that it doesn't feel inspiring to you, but I really think it's amazing. Your 6 miles is harder won than any ride I take, and I admire you for it.
