2014 Goals & Aims

  1. I want to try to pay off my overdraft this year.
  2. This time next year, I want either to be discharged from Hospital or be a voluntary patient (no longer sectioned).
  3. I'd like to get a job.
  4. To increase the rate I read!
  5. I'd like to reduce my naptimes so that I can get up at 8am and not need a sleep in the afternoon because when I'm not in the Hospital and I'm working and/or at College, I won't be able to do that.
  6. I want to use any spare money I have for things for my home so that when I'm ready to move into it, I'm not having to spend a ton of money!
  7. If I am discharged for this time next year then I'd like to have my kitten, who I'll be naming Dolly!
  8. I'd like to complete Psychology and vow to tell her absolutely everything I can possibly think of.
  9. By the end of 2014, I hope to either be reducing my anti-psychotic medication, or completely off it.
  10. I'd like to be able to go on unescorted leave and not worry it'll result in me losing all of my other leave.
  11. I'd like to take full advantage of having a free gym here and become more confident in my body.
  12. I'd like to have more confidence in my style to experiment a bit with fashion.

And, from both the nature of BPD and my experience of it, I know how unpredictable it is and I think it would be irresponsible of me to think that this year will go smoothly and without a hiccup - I still hope there isn't one, obviously. So, by the end of 2014, I hope to be happier and healthier, and above all; ALIVE.
