Today, I had to get to the second campus of my school for an errand and my mom was supposed to drive me after my class. But her husband needed the car. So my mom told me she would come meet me at school and we would decide from there how we would do this. So once she met me at school she actually managed to convince me to take the bus. (I am VERY afraid of taking buses!) So here I go on the bus then do the proper transfer second bus and then I am there and I do my errand. When my errand is done my mom says Hey! It is not that far so why don't we walk? Well, lately I have been doing well with the walking when I am near home but walking over distances scares me a lot. But I figured hey I took the bus why not walk. So me and my mom walked all the way back home. Sure, I could say that I was with a safe person, but i am still really proud of myself. I did well today and I am happy. So all in all up to now I think I have done really well for myself today, especially since the last few days have been rough. IT is nice for me to realize that even when I hit rough patches it doesn't mean I have to let myself step backwards. I can just accept the rough patch and keep trying and keep moving and every little success I get brings me closer to being who and how I want to be. Anyway, I have said enough lol. Was just proud of myself cause today went well and it made me feel better :) -Diva

Ok no taxis available again! But this time i decided that since it was nice i would walk. so i ended up taking a 15-20 brisk walk all alone (I am afraid of exercise btw) and went home that way. I was so happy with myself! Anyway, that is all for now! -Diva

Well in this case it is more like i didnt get stuck and lived A.K.A Fate wants me to take the bus!!!! I was done at school and really wanted to go home. So i call up the the first cab company and it is an hour wait for a cab. The second one is 1:30 wait and the third one is so busy they are not even answwering the phones aymore. (Whats up with all the cabs being so busy anyway?) Then i realize nobody i know is home at that hour so i cant get a lift. IT is too far to walk (especially cause i am wearing shoes and it is below zero outside and i am afraid to exercise lol). So i start panicking and i am thinking i just want to get home to relax and i am stuck here and what is it with me getting stuck all the time!Argh i cant take this!!! And the more this goes on the more anxious i get and i am getting hot and sweaty ..... Then i tell myself. Hey there Diva girl! Calm down. You have options. You can either sit quietly at the library and read something fun to relax and wait for the cabs to be less busy or you can take the bus. Now taking the bus is a huge deal for me. Been bus phobic on and off for half of forever!!!! Since my relapse i have not been able to get on the bus. But i really did not want to stay there i am tired and i want to go home. So i grab my bags and my courage and ihead out to the bus stop. Luckily, it did not take long to arrive so I didnt have time to talk myself out of it lol. So anyway after two different buses. I get off at about two blocks of my house. And i realize i have to walk back home now, slightly up hill. I know this means my heart will beat a lot faster from the effort. So i prepare myself mentally to accept that my heart will beat faster and that is is normal and ok and that i am not anxious, that i am just exercising. So i walked home and here i am. I am glad it is through with but i am real happy i managed it. Now i can just relax and get on with my evening which feels nice. Thanks for listening :) -Diva
