Re: Just another day.....*sigh*
Glad to hear your councellor's working for you, can you tell her about the guy thing or are you working through a program? I too used to be terrified of every guy I met, perhaps it's because guys have hurt you in the past, physically or emotionally, and you haven't had a good relationship with one, as a friend or otherwise? (This is me summarising from my experiences, do feel free to put me straight). There are some guys out there (sadly astonishingly few) who can be classified as safe and in most cases they're nicer than girls to be with and I was lucky enough to meet one, then a few more, but it doesn't really make a difference around the "unsafe" ones. Like I said, for them it's good to plan ahead, make sure you know where exit routes are, practise saying "I'd like to be left alone please" etc, then instead of being overwhelmed you can run over things like that in your head.
Hope your throat feels better soon, are you still able to eat with it? I will send chicken soup as well as the hugs today. Take care of yourself ok? Oh that the wonders of modern medicine actually lived up to the name.
