I went to the doc today because for the last 2 weeks i have been having headaches and pains in my head.
I talked to the doc and since i had an ear infection a few weeks ago he said it might be from that or maybe just a sinus infection,
BUT he said he is not sure if thats whats causeing it, so if I am not feeling better in the next week or so he wants me
to have a cat scan done....SO Now I am feeling alittle stressed, while i know if he thought is was something bad he would have
sent me to the hospital, I still feel stressed out cause in the back of my mind i am thinking very bad stuff.....errr
Sometimes my own mind is my worst enemy!
On top of that, the father of my childhood friend (and still my friend to this day) Ask me If I would go on a date with him, I was a bit freaked out by this! I mean I use to spend the night at my friends house and he would makes us snacks and stuff...eww!
I thought about telling my friend but i am afraid she will freak out and maybe even be mad at me......I'm not sure what to do?
I of course told him no! BUt still a little freaked out by it.
Sorry to ramble so much! I think i needed to vent

Ahh, imagination can be a curse can't it?!! When my mind hitches onto a "what if" cycle I can get lost in it for days.  I find a useful thing to do is to just write down all the "what ifs", even the "I'm going to fall over and die soon" one on a bit of paper and then put it on top of the fridge and let it take care of itself.  Everytime the negative thoughts come back I just direct them to the top of the fridge.  Sounds Kooky, but it works for me!

As for being asked out by father of a friend.  that's a whole bucket of awkward!! I'd suggest being honest with him and tell him it makes you feel uncomfortable...take it from there.  If you ARE interested then it's a good place to start making thins work.  All the best. 


I alone can do this, but I cannot do it alone.
