@incandenza these talk things sound like a great idea like everyone’s said. If you’re not feeling up to it or too nervous or anxious or whatever I’ll come with, no bother. Also it’s really satisfying that you got a green icon to go with @greenarrow.
@scout I’m terrible for replying so sorry if I’ve left you hanging at any point. I know what you mean about cancelling stuff due to anxiety tho, I used to do it a lot but idk how I improved with it. Just by faking being confident and repressing my urges to not do stuff that I knew I would enjoy if I actually did. Also I had a dream that Gary Kasparov the Russian chess guy crashed into your car last night (you had a car) and he was a total dick about it until I told him we knew he was Gary Kasparov the Russian chess guy (I don’t know what Gary Kasparov the Russian chess guy looks like). It really upset you, but I said I’ve got your back if you need it at the time and I still mean it in the IRL.
This is stupid but it’s v sincere. I’ve been feeling really run down due to anxiety stuff lately, mainly due to work which should be dialling back a bit soon, and going away for a wk helped massively, but also I’ve been to the drs and talked about it and done blood tests and an ECG which is worrying but I think it’ll make me feel better when I get the results. Idk. I think the fact that I’m dog sitting for my mam and dad for a couple of wks from the end of next wk is setting me off as well coz the easiest way is me staying at their house alone coz their dog cba with our dog and she’s old and not well so it’s not fair on her.
Tldr, this thread is a bit much for me sometimes, I dip in and out and it’s so lovely to see people helping each other out. You’re all the best ️
