It sound like this is a very good way to get you out a bit on weekends... I have been arranging things to do like that for months now, and it became so easy to go out. I am always trying to find more and more things to do, so that I stay more out than in on weekends
Keep it up!
Minnie, I just told people around me how I felt - if they get it, fine, if they don't, than it is their problem. The fact that I told them that I had a problem, makes it easier to let it out when I felt bad. So if I felt like lying on bed for days, I would just do it - if they asked anything, I would just say I was not well and I had to lie down - leave me alone!! lol. In the past, quite a few times I would arrange to go out with a few friends, to the cinema, for example, and when the time came, I could not do it because I felt panicky. So I would just call and say "I am having a panic attack and I can't go out - enjoy yourselves" - and that's it. I stopped caring if they would start thinking that I was weird etc. In the end, I lost some "friends", but there were those that kept on calling now and then to see how I was, if there was anything they could do. Some would come to see me instead of going out. So I still have the good friends, and the others I would just think that they were not friends at all to start with, or just too scared (ignorant) to keep in touch. Who wants those kind of people around???
