    eBay parcels all done and posted. I've got an ebayer who has not provided a complete address and hasn't replied to my emails about it. Looks like I might have to cancel that one as it went for more than expected and I'm not prepared to risk the money. Someone on DH's account has changed their mind :mad: but at least they asked to cancel and didn't ignore it.

    I'm pretty much up to date with surveys. Could do with a few more so I can cash out on a couple of sites.

    I went for a health check this morning at the Drs. Surprisingly apart from my weight, I am very healthy! No issues with blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar etc :T :T My heart age is 39, which is a year younger than me. Considering I am morbidly obese, I was surprised and so was the nurse I think! Some of the questions are about mood, and I did mention my anxiety. She gave me some leaflets about self-referring to talking therapies and also told me to book an appointment with the doc if I need to. I will have to consider it, as it did impact a lot on the Christmas holidays. I've got to book a day off for physio this month so might see if I can get an appointment that day as at least I won't have the kids with me.

    Today's list:
    • Surveys
    • Check banks
    • PAD
    • Clean kitchen
    • Dry washing
    • Sort out charity donation
    • Chase ebayer about address
    • Walk at lunchtime

    Well done on completing your list yesterday :T. Also well done for mentioning your anxiety to the doctor :T.

    I want to do some decluttering, so I'm going to copy your lists of decluttered items to remind me of progress made :).

    Don't you always find the amount of surveys slows down when you reach near payout
    I have seen this mentioned by others

    This evening I make my first Jwllesque list, finally
    I think I will put on what I would like to do until Sunday

    My lists are going to ve called Jwllesque if you have no objections

    I read that you do eBay often throughout the year. How are February and March for sales, I just know when we move even with the big declutter, I am going to have tons to get rid of.

    I am so pleased that you mentioned the anxiety at the surgery today. It's hard to live with. I saw a counsellor for four years and we are still in touch via email if I am in need. It was one of the best things I did for myself. I tried CBT via the NHS but to know effect.
    I went private cost a bit but so worth it
    I still suffer but so much less than I did
    SEALED POT CHALLENGE # 100
    pot 1 (unknown starting amount) £18 Pot 2 £10

    I had CBT with the NHS after my sister died after waiting six months and it was not much use :(. So after another six months on the waiting list I had counselling, but it was with a medical student not a proper counsellor and restricted to twelve weeks. It helped but only because I had someone to let out all my feelings to. The student didn't really know what to say to me, I was old enough to be his mother :(.

    So if you can afford private I'm sure it would be better.

    Thank you :) I think I might make the appointment.

    Good luck with the decluttering, I haven't progressed much :D

    Yes, I do find the surveys seem to slow down, especially the last one that will get you to cash out!

    You are very welcome to name your lists after me :D I am honoured.

    I find eBay fine throughout the year. I've always listed throughout. We've always have plenty of sales. I don't have a lot on at the moment, but DH does, and his stuff is still going well.

    I find my anxiety cripples me physically, it all goes into my digestive system. It stops me doing a lot.

    So if you can afford private I'm sure it would be better.

    The nurse gave me a leaflet for self referral to various CBT courses. I'd like to go to the anxiety one, but I assume they are Mon-Fri daytimes and I won't be able to. I think I'll make the appointment with the doc and see if I can find out when they are held.
