Re: Peer Group Chat// Music & Mental Health// Thursday 4th August 2022// 7-8:30

Sorry @TideisTurning , @girasole 

Too shaken up tonight to be involved,  sorry 

We were nearly involved in 2 accidents 

Re: Peer Group Chat// Music & Mental Health// Thursday 4th August 2022// 7-8:30

Oh no @Shaz51 - I'm so sorry to hear!

 

I hear you are shaken. Was this on the way to visit mum?

 

If you don't feel you want to discuss it, that's totally okay. I just want to make sure you feel supported and are both mentally and physically supported.

 

Waiting to hear from you,

tyme

Hello @tyme ❤

No on our way to our second job for the day  and this truck started to pass us and another car in front of us and with cars coming in the opposite direction 

He pulled in nearly pushing us off the highway and nearly smashing in to the car in front of us 

And then 5 minutes later he had to slam on his brakes so he didn't run over the car in front of us 

We were behind the truck 

Then we finally got to our second job and could not do it because there was no water or power 

Re: Peer Group Chat// Music & Mental Health// Thursday 4th August 2022// 7-8:30

Oh no..... @Shaz51 . My heart is racing just reading what you have written. I can only imagine how shaken you and Mr Shaz are.

 

Please rest up. I'll see you around on the forums, tyme

Re: Peer Group Chat// Music & Mental Health// Thursday 4th August 2022// 7-8:30

Thank you @tyme 

Was not sure writting this here would be OK ❤❤

Re: Peer Group Chat// Music & Mental Health// Thursday 4th August 2022// 7-8:30

The roads do not feel as "safe" as they were around here either @Shaz51 

 

Hope you both settle down alright.

 

Here is a share. A band I had never heard of Pollyanna
