    Now gay pride is also here this weekend... I've convinced myself to go. I will be facing 2 things that I have not done so well lately... Being outside and crowds. And I know it will lead to anxiety issues... I have to do this though. I haven't been anywhere in months besides work and running errands. I'm definitely freaked about it. I NEED to do this. I NEED to ignore the voice in my head telling me not to go. I just have to get it together and just go. I have to start living my life right? Get out of that house and actually do something....

    You should go. If anything, just leave if it gets too much.

    I will likely be going everyday (friday night, Saturday and sunday) And I will have my phone with me so I actually will access to SF.

    Nope don't have anybody to go with. Well I'll be going with my ex and my daughter but I'm not hanging around her at all... Heck maybe I can meet somebody new there. I am excited about this but still freaking out quite a bit.

    see...I knew this would happen... I'm sitting here at work starting to second guess my decision on going to pride. Is it really worth putting myself through? I'm comfortable enough just sitting at home away from people. Do I really need to be outside in a group of people just to have fun? I can have fun at my house without the anxiety....

    Pride events are ALWAYS fun. I find that even though I'm nervous and panicky at first-- everyone is just so happy and energetic that it brings me up too.

    I think it's a great idea! You have to go! :D just try not to think about it a whole lot, or you'll end up chickening out...

    Yeah you're right. It will be fun. I'm just worried about going... Worried about if it will be worth it. I guess maybe I've convinced myself that staying inside all the time is the best way to go but when in reality its not I think so anyways... I just know its been months since i've done anything "fun" outside of the house.

    It'll be worth it, I'm sure.

    I did go but when I got there I found out it cost money to get in (which it hasn't the past 2 years) so I couldn't actually go since I couldn't go. But I did find a family thing going on somewhere else that was free so I took my daughter to that then went to the park. I might try and go to pride today since its free.
