Hi all, first of all I would like to apologise for not being on HW for some time. I have been up and down for a while now but feel I am now strong enough to come back (if you don't mind)
 
I met a man online over a year ago and from the start we got on well. People on and off line tried to seperate us and cause problems but we never let anyone come between us.
Anyway, we had been talking about him travelling up to see me but he was taking to long to actually make the journey so I decided that I would come down to him tongue
At 4:15am I got in my dad's friend's car and made a 4 hour journey down to him and I have never looked back.
We get on so well and support each other so very much.
He has been through a lot lately and I have been here to support him through it all.
We seem so happy together and since I have been here (2 weeks) I have been out every day. I even went into his local town and although I felt anxious I kept on going (maybe because I wouldn't have been able to find my way back to the car park alone lol).
We went shopping but I didn't feel upto going in and shop but hopefully I will be able to do it one day.
 
I feel happier than I have been in a very long time. yeah yeah yeah yeah
Thank you to everyone on here who has supported me and helped me to get out ( to the post office).

 Hi again all. Well, yesterday I travelled 10 miles to meet his uncle who was very nice. I coped quite well throughout but had to go and stand outside to get some air because I felt like I was about to faint.
I met his son the other day too who is very nice indeed. Lets hope that they like me yeah

Hi people, I feel more relaxed down here but I am still struggling. On two occasions I was meant to go shopping but when I got in the car park I completely bottled out and just sat in the car leaving him to do all the shopping. I feel rotten doing this to him, I don't want to cock up the chance of us being together permanantly but I know that by leaving him to do the shopping alone is hard for him to cope with.
How can I overcome this hurdle that seems soooo big????
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated... I thought about going in and trying to get a few items and then coming back out and waiting in the car.. It beats sitting in the car the whole time worrying.

Firstly stop worrying that you are going to lose him, you are putting too much pressure on the situation.
 
Two suggestions for taking more pressure off,
 
Forget about shopping, make your target going to the car park. When you've done that give yourself a pat on the back and feel good for achieving that. You may find that you fancy a wander round the shop.
Or  Go to the shop when you don't need anything. If you cant stay it doesn't matter, you didn't want anything anyway.  If you do go in you will be free to leave anytime.

Hi again all, I think I forgot to mention that after I couldn't do the shopping I did manage to go into the local shop twice!!!!
I went early in the morning to avoid the crowds but atleast I did it! The first time, I had no choice but to go, but the second I decided that I would go with persuasion.
I will get in that supermarket one of these days!
Thank you to everyone who has supported me xxxxxxxxx :-) yeah :-) yeah

Well done Chuckle yeah
I used to live in South Devon and have to travel from Staffordshire to Devon and back again in one day to take my daughter to see her dad. I don't drive as can't (kept having PA when taking lessons) so my partner drives.
You are really brave , I know how hard it is to keep from having a PA on such long journeys and even the thought of going sets me off before I even get in the car eyes
Which part of Staffs are you from if you don't mind me asking? I'm from Rugeley - we moved from Devon because my partner had to change jobs , found a nice house but I do miss the beach - it was a five minute walk from us , but that's the way it goes!
