I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.

Oh that's so dreadful.  I can see why it can be so difficult for you.  That was a really big thing to come out with on here.  As you know, people on here are with you all the way.  Take those deep breaths and go for it!

Oh SOLB sweetie that's terrible   Well done on being brave and talking about it though

Well done for going in SOLB. You're very brave to talk about it and deal with it, I mean that genuinely and in a non-condescending way. Hope it all goes well and make sure you go to the doctor about your coughing!

Solb, I don't do the smell of smoke and beer for similar reasons. You are incredibly brave.

We exchanged real hugs today (and they were fab) but I hadn't read this thread before meeting you in the pub. I had no idea, lovely x

Hooray for hugs and hooray for SOLB for going through with it today.  Tremendous effort.

Erm, moo is back to getting up early.Not as bad as last week, hut 5:30 this morning. We have already discussed parts of the body,done some counting and had a sing song.
In absolutely fabulous news - my brother flew in from Canada yesterday with his girlfriend. I haven't seen him since February and yesterday was the first time we met beccah. She seems really lovely, and I'm sure she will be absolutely fine with Sunday lunchtime madness....

Christmas tree should be making its appearance today
16/12/2012 at 09:38
Sounds fantastic.
Bear has his up already
Oo I forgot to say I had lovely news.
I'd realised I couldn't afford to buy a Christmas tree and all the lights and stuff in one go (cos obviously I don't have anything not having had a tree before) I was planning to buy some lights in the sales and have a tree next year instead. While I was busy trying not to feel disappointed I couldnt do it this year now OCD is finally calm enough a forumite offered to lend me some spare lights and decorations

great news SOLB

have got the inevitable mood crash from yesterday

16/12/2012 at 14:19

SOLB, be proud of yourself! There's nothing wrong with feeling like you achieved something. You felt the fear and did it anyway (to paraphrase the book). I'm fairly sure that's most people's definition of bravery.

As for the post-social event shame, don't worry about it! I bounce from one social faux pas car crash to another. And people still talk to me (I don't know why).

Just been out to the woods for a run.  33 minutes this time - I keep pushing myself to do an extra minute each time.  It's been a tough week and I felt pretty rough when out orienteering yesterday and I really couldn't see how I was going to make it out today.  I felt a bit better as Saturday wore on though.  What made the difference though was seeing what SOLB achieved yesterday.  I thought if SOLB can achieve that then me getting out for a run should be easy by comparison.  Thanks SOLB - you made it happen and I hope in return it gives you something to help your mood today.
