  • Hi Train, I know what you mean and at times like this I have to look back at the times I have felt like this before. I have to think about the pleasure I got when I had done something I dreaded doing. See how far you have come! it's just amazing isn't it really?. Well done you! If I stay away from home I take something with me that is familiar. My own pillow...even my bedside clock. It may sound daft but who cares? It brings a little bit of home with you whenever you want it. A bit like a dummy for a baby lol but it works !! trust me love , I've tried it Love and Hugs xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  • Hi EllaBella I will definitely bring something with me probably more then one bit,lol!Probably my favourite blanket and my favourite Pj..m pretty sure it will work...some days I feel alright about it and some others I m very anxious about it which is really strange..thank u for the advise ..U re a star xxxxxxxxxxxx ;-)
