    I think I'd feel a bit embarrassed dragging all my kit there then watching from the side. Also can't play for only a little while as we'll be in teams and everyone will hate me if I leave my team one player down. My wife said to go, look around to see who's there and then leave if I don't feel I can do it which seems fair enough.
    maybe go this time without your kit and prehaps meet the other players, then next time youll atleast have been before.
    you can do it! :hugs:

    Ended up telling my parents just how bad things got for me last year at uni and that I'm scared that it'll happen again and they were so much better about it than they have been. They said they wish I'd told them earlier or at least when it was happening and they might have been more supportive and made more of an effort to understand when I was upset for seemingly no reason.

    They also said I need to work on my self-esteem because I obviously have a low opinion of myself and I shouldn't, so I suppose that might be what I end up talking about in counselling when I go back.

    I'm a bit more hopeful now though

    One week into my course and I'm thinking of already switching. It just doesn't feel right to me at all. Maybe it's cause I'm totally out of my comfort zone but still. I need to make a decision on what I want to do really.

    Having a bit of a panic - housesitting on my own, in the middle of nowhere, is a bit scarier than I thought it would be (I have PTSD.) I was doing OK until it got dark, now I'm scared.

    Bloody miles away from anyone I can call to come over and keep me company.

    If this post disappears, it's because I've thought better of advertising my aloneness online... I'm pretty sure there's no way of figuring out, from the details I've given here or the accounts attached to this one, where I am, but still ?

    I feel for you! I HATE being home alone - currently hiding in my room in the dark listening for every tiny noise because my step dad left me alone!
    You will be ok!

    Made lots of cookies tonight to keep me busy. Not sure what I'm going to do with 6 cookies but it passed some time. Unfortunately, I got distracted by my dog and grabbed one of the baking trays not realising it was still hot and I now have burns that are blistering on my hand :/

    Thanks We have dogs, I'm trying to tell myself that the dogs will keep me safe, but honestly I'm not sure they'd actually do anything to an intruder. They make a racket, but there's no one in earshot and I'm not sure the noise would scare someone...

    I keep turning the lights on and off signalling "someone is here!"


    VaVe - send them to me? I'm sure I could take care of six cookies for you Consider making a doctors appointment for the blisters - if you have burns on your hands, or they're larger than a 50p coin, you should get a doctor to look at them. In the meantime don't put any creams or anything on them, they tend to make things worse rather than better, increase your risk of getting an infection. I really hope they feel better soon!

    My current plan is to take a load of them to work and leave them in the office. They're only small burns but there's a few of them which is annoying. Am planning to just leave them be, not as bad as the burn I got from my hair straighteners a few years ago.

    So I went to a party that I'd been ****ting myself about and it was OK. I drank some Coke and danced a bit and talked to friends who don't hate me after all (just like 08batee and possibly tasha96 and others too kept telling me ). Managed to get home all by myself as well and I didn't freak out unlike the last time I met this group of friends :woo:

    But you had a good time though
    Surely not sleeping for 1 night is worth all the Coke in the world for a good night with friends :ninja:

    I didn't realise you had two names. Learn a new thing everyday! :yep:

    See, even if I went down Southall or some other Asian place, they still wouldn't have my name on a Coke bottle :cry2:
