On Thursday I had my brothers wedding which is be really anxious about since they booked it but in the end it went really well as I said in the previous post.

On Saturday morning I had the launch of my new football mental health kick around project in Doncaster and again that went really well.

I’m grateful for having a friend there with me who helped me run the first session so I wasn’t completely on my own and took some of the pressure off me.

I was anxious about it and I did drain myself mentally and give myself a slight stress headache but after taking sumatriptan and having a little nap I was then ready for my friends wedding night do which we stayed for two hours.

And then to finish off on Sunday I was playing an 11aside competitive game, it was away at a place I’ve never been before, it was busy and quite overwhelming at first.

We badly lost the match and I didn’t score so I was very frustrated with myself but happy to have completed this busy few days.

A over the last few years these events would’ve been massively challenging for me (My brothers wedding still was but I think I was in a much better place on my anxiety journey to cope with it) and I possibly would’ve backed out and not gone at all so to do them all and in such a short space of time and even two in one day was massive for me.

The wedding night do on Saturday evening was important to me as it was a great group of friends and I wanted to make sure I attended so they know I put in the effort and can now do more with them.

I’m glad it was this way around with the events because had my brothers wedding been the last event I probably wouldn’t have risked doing the others incase I made myself bad for the wedding.

I was a little anxious about Monday morning and how my head would feel after the busy few days and I did wake up with a tension headache but luckily it wasn’t too bad.
