Hi Mili

Sorry to hear you had a rough time..

I can relate to that...I ve felt that way many times, its horrible...it takes time to regain confidence , you need to tell yourself that you'll be fine even on your own , i know easier said than done, but if you say it to yourself it would be a good start. By starting changing your thought patterns, you'll change the worry pattern and therefore the anxiety.( if that makes sense ).
Hope that helps.

I often get scared of being alone at home. Distraction is the best way to take it off your mind and make the time pass quicker..:D

Well done Mili,

You're absolutely right about each day being a new one and working at it so the goods outweigh the bad

That is all you can do for now - take each day as it comes and don't think that every day will be so bleak as sometimes things surprise us.
