  1. Unfortunately, public transportation here sucks, you will be surprised how much most of them will bribe you just to get you to your destination. I know it's not the worst thing, and I know others have the same fear, but I've never met anyone outside my family who can relate. It also just isolates me more and makes me have to cover up in front of co-workers, etc. I wish I didn't have to drive, believe me. Also, I'm really hard on myself, and any mistake just crumbles whatever confidence I had built up until that point. Question: do you think self-driving cars like the ones Google and Apple have been experimenting with would be an even worse nightmare for you or your salvation? I could not imagine myself getting into one of these cars as it's not 100% reliable yet that you can just let it drive in it's own. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for both your response! I really appreciated it.
  2. I'm kind of anxious even posting this. I don't know if anyone else can relate. I have had a fear of driving since I was a child. I got my license through some kind of freak stroke of luck, but I really cannot drive on my own. I have tried driving schools, and this just makes my anxiety worse. I have tried off and on through the years to practice and learn (with my sister teaching me) with varying degrees of success/failure, but the most I ever got was driving a few blocks to the local grocery store by myself. My sister is pretty calm and a good instructor. Basically, she's the only hope I have, but she was too busy to help me out (working, getting her master's, single mother of three kids plus the pandemic). Now that she finished her degree, we practice once a week. I have tried to stick to it even though I hate it. I force myself because I know I need to do this. I thought I was making progress (along with the slow progress I made over the years), though I can't even dream of driving on a highway, but yesterday was the worst day I've had in a long time. I don't even understand why, because I was focused, the weather and traffic were not too bad, even though where I live the traffic and drivers can be horrible. Mostly my fear stems from other drivers around me, but this time was all my fault. I made stupid mistakes that I have never made, or at least not made in a really long time, over and over, almost getting into an accident three times (avoided due to my sister stepping in). Even she was freaking out, and she has never done this. Who knows if she will still want to help me. Of course, the worse I felt the more anxious I got. My heart was racing and I was shaking. We stopped somewhere so I could calm down a little. I really don't know why I messed up so badly, but it made me feel like quitting, like I am NEVER going to be able to do this thing that is so ridiculously simple for so many people! I feel like a total loser! No matter how hard I try, I feel like I cannot change. I was actually having a pretty decent week too in other respects, and now this makes me doubt progress in other areas of my life (work, therapy). I mean, if this can come crashing down like a house of cards so suddenly, I feel like everything else can too. Thanks to anyone who read this far.
  3. The ideas was hella funny! But you did a great job at thinking for some alternative!
  4. PennyWise!!! I wan't him out of this world, I wonder what he looks like if all the air in his body got suck out in space.
  5. I wish I have an awesome wife too. A gamer one that is, that must be really cool!
  6. Can't believe this post will go a long way. On this New Year, may you change your direction and not dates, change your commitments and not the calendar, change your attitude and not the actions, and bring about a change in your faith, and your focus and not the fruit. May you live up to the promises you have made and may you create for you and your loved ones the happiest New Year ever. Happy New Year!
  7. Planning to watch Home Alone 1-4 this Christmas eve with a friend. Hopefully she won't back out.
  8. I am finding this Christmas pretty tough too. I am lucky to be able to work from home but I don't know when I will even be able to see my family (they live in the province and travel between there and where I live has been stopped) so it's pretty hard and anxiety-making. I've stumbled on this page in hopes of finding an answer for being this anxious and it discusses how I can come up with different solutions to my problem. I'll be glad to leave it here for you and everyone to take time and read. https://adaa.org/learn-from-us/from-the-experts/blog-posts/consumer/top-ten-covid-19-anxiety-reduction-strategies Merry Christmas!
  9. This year has been very busy year for me, even painting some stuff is out of the question.
  10. Unfortunately, I none of my friends are breeding some kitties. Plus both of them will give me discount on both puppies, so I only have those 2 options, I'm still trying to earn enough money to buy one though, hopefully I get to have them before January 1 lol, grrr
  11. Thanks for all the tips, I'll surely keep it noted. I'll choose a female one, a bit expensive than males but at least I can breed her with other dog and bring more pups in the future. :)
  12. @Glitterwolf I'm choosing between a husky or a beagle, both were being sold by friends, for now, I'm researching and asking friends which will suit me and my lifestyle, I don't want to put stress on the pup so I want to make sure I'll have enough time to take care of her. We've got a small park here in the village and I'm sure I can take her for a walk or a two! I will surely post pics of her here when time comes. Thank you!
  13. Hi, How is everyone? I hope you guys are doing well this Christmas season. It's almost here and yet, we're all still living in isolation trying to survive this pandemic by doing something productive nowadays. Tbh, I've been feeling anxious this past few weeks and I want to reward myself for surviving this pandemic so far. I'm sure most of us here would love a reward for ourselves. So tell me, what would be the best gift you can give to yourself this Christmas? I plan on buying me a pup as I live alone, how about you? :)
