, as someone has said on the AWAKE thread. IF you are feeling too anxious to come into the pub on your own, someone can meet you from the train, if you are coming by train and see you into the pub. That way you are only meeting one on one to begin with.

However I would just like to say, to you and anyone else who is anxious. Once you have met everyone once you will be looking forward to the next meet and the following one! These are going to be friends for life xxx

I'm very anxious too Puzzler, more about the journey then meeting everyone, getting lost, missing the train, not being able to find the venue etc etc etc. My lovely DH will shepherd me there, and then go of and enjoy Birmingham, pick me up later. He will probably find something train related to do.

Anxiety's awful isn't it. I am finding that forcing myself to to more and more things is helping. I've on,y just started driving again after 18/12, and plan to start swimming again Mon30th, again after 18/12. Coming to Birmingham on my own is too much at the moment though. 


But see the offers form the others to meet you off the train and take you to the venue 


Big hugs xxx

LondnLass, more questions. This may sound odd, sorry, s what are the chairs like? I have a very dodgy back and have to have good lumbar support, therefore no open backs, I always have a sausage type cushion with me. 

Also what is the food like. I have various things I can't eat, which is sometimes a problem , but by abd large if it is not to spicy or cruchybI?m OK.

I don!t drink alcohol at all, upsets my stomach, and don't drink tea or coffe, bring my own chamomile teabags,.Tea/coffee upsets me generally.

With all these foibles am I still OK to come??? Xxxxxxx
