Tell me to pull myself together...

I am supposed to be flying to Dublin tonight with my sister and her DH for my aunt's 50th birthday party. Our whole family is having a knees-up (32 people) and it will be a lovely do with caterers etc. Yesterday I woke up with spots on my throat, stiff neck, blocked ear, temperature. Went to the doc who says virus thing and I cannot fly. sad
DH is gone to a stag weekend, he is the best man and is organising the whole thing so of course he has to go. (Anyway I wouldn't want him to stay for me, I'm not properly sick just feel poo.)
I obv hadn't planned anything for this weekend as I was supposed to be in Dublin...just texted a friend of mine to see if I could stay with her tonight and she said no because she is afraid of catching the bug.

So I am home alone with no plans and a sore ear and sodding great fat neck. Am feeling v v sorry for myself <big fat tear plops into cup of lemsip>.

I thought AIBU could boot me out of my well of misery quicker than anything else...

Sounds like a DVD boxset night to me. Ooooor a 80's movie night!!!! Pull yourself together, there's chocolate to be eaten and films full of leg warmers and terrible hair to be watched. Tut.

Enjoy grin

Deffo order in the pizza with some sort of hot gooey chocolatey thing to finish off with and enjoy a night with the boxsets.

wine will help tremendously I'm sure

This is helping. I am imagining myself with wine and chocolates and a box set. I feel vaguely less miserable now!
Thing is I am also the wuss of all wusses and I get scared in the house by myself. So I need to watch very unscary and calming things on the boxset.

I vote for Dirty Dancing or Police Academy! smile I also second the dominos...

I'm the same, I get really scared when DH is away. And I lived on my own in my 20s and was fine! I tend to watch comforting things, like Cold Feet or SATC.

Ha ha ha ha PrincessJenga at first I thought dominoes??? why would she want to play dominoes? I get it now! [sheepishly walks off]

SATC is v good because a) I've seen them all before so in a weird way it's comforting and b) the women all live on their own and are perfectly unafraid.
When DH is away I have a terrible habit of locking all the doors and windows and then lying awake worrying about how I would escape in a fire. When DH is here I sleep like a log, windows open to let the breeze in. *sigh.

Aaah, we must be twins - I'm exactly the same. SH went on a long weekend with the lads a few weeks ago, and I found it really scary going to bed, and kept on waking up in the early hours. And I have a baby DD to keep me company, but in a way the sense of responsibility just made it worse! I sympathise hugely. SATC is brilliant.
Wine to take the edge off it, but not so much that you wake up with "the fear" grin
