  • Susannaylor thanx heaps x I know I can do it but it just def takes over my mind and wins x I will try and get through this. I totally understand waiting for results. I'm the same get a blood test done and can't wait to ring for results then pray the dr doesn't want to see me . It's just horrible . Wishing you all the best with your results you will be fine xx THANKYOU for the chats x

  • The hard lesson is that we have to face our fears & go out & do what is worrying us; we should rule our minds, not let our minds rule us. I know how hard this is (I have social anxiety & find it hard to do things with other people). Can you go out & do your riding with a friend with you for support? Or distract your negative thoughts & focus on how much you love horses & being around them? Good Luck Jodz.

  • Jencan thanx . Yes I love my horses and riding but this devil inside my head is a night mare , but I have to really try my hardest and push through . I do have friends that go riding with me and are great support . But lately I have really struggled and have said no and make up an excuse which I hate doing , but they know me lol . THANKYOU for your support xx

  • Thanks for the thanks, jodz! We'll be going through the same thing, in that this morning a friend has said that she's getting me a ticket for a local music event & I have to go with her. Oh NO!!! I've not managed to get myself to anything where I feel hemmed in for ages. I'll have to try & do all the stuff I wrote to you yesterday. In this (mess) together then, jodz! x

  • Jencan oh no but you can do it !! Remember what you told me and I know it's bloody hard , but you go girl xx I sqwibed out again today , gez I need to build a bridge and get over it and drink a cup of cement lol . But if you do go and I hope you do, please let me know how you did it please .Wishing you all the best and have a blast x Can't wait for your result x
