From that, and other stuff I've read this morning, it seems like it definitely works better, and is easier to set up, if I can connect to an hdmi arc.
Might be a good excuse to update the TV :), before going for the beam.
Yesterday gave me an opportunity to reflect on where i am with my Mental Health.
Without realising it, in recent months i have come a hell of a long way. My periods of anxiety seem to have cut down considerably.
My main anxieties these days are with money and bills, but where i would usually try and ignore it, i have actually done something about it by cutting bills, refinancing a loan, cutting shopping costs, moving payment dates etc. I think i'm at a point where i can feel a bit more comfortable as well as not having to worry too much about Christmas.
I don't worry every single day anymore about whether i'm good enough, my employment, social anxieties etc..
I honestly think exercise and diet is the key. Lots of water, green tea, breakfast smoothies, fruit, running and bodyweight exercises. Not wanting to buy things to make me happy.
I actually feel in control and ready to push on. Most importantly i want to help others who feel stuck.
My no means am i out of the woods though. I've been stung way too many times to be that naive.
