I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
Frodo, these situations can be difficult at times. It's not pathetic just at times it can be too much to face up to. After all, they could have come over and spoken to you. It's something I often feel awkward about when I'm out. I'd rather just sit where I am and feel awkward about going over to anyone else that I know. When I'm not on top of my game it's just so difficult to open a conversation. Also people are always in the middle of another conversation so I always thing what if I go over there have no idea what they're talking about and can't work my way in. I'd feel such an idiot. These things aren't easy even if some people make them look easy so don't beat yourself up over it.
I am glad that you mentioned the new shed was arriving tomorrow though, otherwise I would thought the old one had been destroyed in frustration!
I see SOLB's name has received some festive decoration!
Hugs called for methinks (((((Frodo)))).
I find that my self-confidence feels at rock bottom at the moment. It really takes a lot of getting back but it's something that I think we just have to believe can be regained and keep working towards it.
Oooh it's even changed the name on an old post
SOLB, you didn't seem at all nervous in the pub but *stern Paddington stare* you should have said something then you would have got an extra special hug.
Mick, yes we met at Mudchute. I was with Bear at the time, which may help you remember which one he is. We have also met at Stratford marathon last year, when it was cut down to a half.
My guess for your name change is - by deck the halls it's holly.
Evening. I've just got back from a couple of days with my Mum and Sister.
Solb - so proud and got ooodles of respect for you for going into that pub and for opening up on your experiences here. What a fantastic achievement.
I'll read back further in a while but just had to respond to SOLB straight away. Pure gold that.
Ahh it's not as easy to say as to write SCaz - I don't think I've ever managed to say it straight off, though I can talk about it once someone already knows sometimes.
Aww by eck, you can have some virtual hugs now and I'll save some special it's so good to finally meet you ones for when we do eventually get together
Good guess Lincoln Rudolph ... I'm super curious about the name change now!!
Awww Turkey Soup Dragon (the name made me laugh.) How was it with your family?
Thank you so much for your support. I'm glad I did; both sticking it out in the pub and telling you about the trauma things
TSD - I assume you're back at work tomorrow. If so will be thinking of you and hope you get on OK.
Getting a bit nervous of facing another week myself - but hopefully I'm set for a better one than last week.
Is there anything positive planned into your week Rudolph? Maybe we can help to cheerlead you to reach it
