Today started off with my depressive episode feeling the heaviest yet, but the day got completely overturned with a succession of awesome things happening 😀
This normally never happens, we have the worst luck haha, so yay!
First thing…Halifax got in touch about my complaint
I complained about the way they treated me in terms of my title, that they don’t have anything outside of Ms, Mrs or Mr on their system, and also that the staff member had no sympathy for me having seizures / brain fog.
Well, they gave me a monetary compensation and far FAR cooler – THEY ARE ADDING THE TITLE MX TO ALL THEIR BANKS, NATIONWIDE!!! 😀
They said it might take some time, but they are actually doing it! And I got the first Mx card from a Halifax ever, which my mum pointed out haha, and how cool is that?!
Woohoo! Thank you Halifax for being so good 🙂
On top of that, when I text my mum the outcome she was amazingly wonderfully supportive and impressed. We then had a really, really awesome conversation about the name change, me being non-binary, how I felt etc etc.
My parents haven’t seemed particularly supportive throughout this, so this came out of left field and made me so hugely happy!! She said she’s gonna start trying to call me Dally too haha, which will be weird but awesome XD
Happy me’s from today!
To celebrate monies, we went out and explored somewhere we’d never been before.
I’m trying to push myself for further and further train journeys now my polarized ski goggles are helping so much with seizures. This was my longest journey yet at 35 minutes. Great day, and I got to go around four different pet shops – something I haven’t been able to do in YEARS!!
We found a fab new herp shop, and guess what? WE RESERVED A ROYAL PYTHON!
I’ve wanted a Royal for almost a decade haha, but have always opted for other snakes when we’ve been looking for one. The pet shop guy was showing us loads of herps though, and this Royal was for sale and it was so tame and he said it was a great feeder…and it just happened 😀
I’m collecting it this weekend when my parents come visit us, so we have a few days to sort the viv out. If you don’t like snakes, look away now and scroll to the red word SAFE!
The snake in the middle is mine! ❤
We also got a bite to eat at a Costa, and I found some new walking boots in a charity shop. Hells yea!
I only had four seizures whilst out, and we were out about 3.5/4 hours too 😀
Also check out this pic from the train on the way there…LOOK HOW NORMAL I LOOK!! I couldn’t ride trains for so long, and there I am just chilling reading a book!!
Train back wasn’t quite as fun, as there were some obnoxious teenage girls sat opposite blatantly laughing at my goggles, but for a depressive episode I dealt with it really well, so I guess I can be chuffed with that 😛
Hope y’all have had as good a day as I have!
