Today wasn't so bad as I thought

Today me and my boyfriend toke a nice journey to Stratford-upon-Avon where I like to go to unwind after a week of work. The weather wasn't so bad so went got the train and decided to go up there, I felt anxious on the train as I done get anxiety when leaving the house. We walked around the shops and walked along the riverside as normal.

We got to the riverside and taken a little boat thing across the river to get the other side. Once we got of I noticed a fair ground which brought back fun times which I had at fun fairs. So, I decided to nag the HELL out off my boyfriend to join go the ride, if not he's a chicken.

After ages finding a cashpoint to withdraw money we got to ride. The madness is yet to begin, the people operating the ride were two young gypsie boys who looked the age of ten. I shrugged it of and got on the ride.

This ride put us up side down in mid air and my anxiety just went crazy but at the same time I felt alright. I had never felt so close to death in my life due to the safety seat lock feeling lose, the G force hitting my body and the mixed emotions I was feeling.

The thing is after that ride I felt a release like. Such a strange amount of feeling but was the highlight of my day, my anxiety didn't control me from making decisions and that's what matters.

That's really cool. I'll have to remind myself to ride roller coasters when I feel afraid.
