Jane and Deirdre chat two months later at their local group

Scene 1

  • Jane: Hello Deirdre, how are you?
  • Deirdre: Much better Jane, thank you, much better.

Scene 2

  • Jane: What’s helped?
  • Deirdre: You were right. I’m still tired, but its easier to cope with. I use my daily diary, and I get more done because I pace myself and relax. And I don’t give myself a hard time now.

Scene 3

  • Deirdre: Setbacks are a chance to learn, problem solve. I finally feel like I’m coping, at last.
