FUCK
I drunkenly stubbed my toe last night and now it hurts to walk on.
I had to call out of work today, for the first time ever at this job and I've been here over a year.
I'm the type of person who is a workaholic so calling out of work really bugs me but I know it's not going to break me and I shouldn't be risking more injury since my job is being on my feet all day.....
Bah, humbug

I'd say that you're measurably more prepared than the average virgin, TattooGoddess, although that will take you 50% of the way. The rest is attitude, temperament, and a little luck of the draw (weather, health, and the chance encounters you have).

Being scared even now, even after all this time? Normal.

Ah, fuck him...I know someone who relied on some family to take care of everything, and TWO WEEKS before that burn they pulled out. Talk about messy, eerrgg...

Yes, nervous, scared etc is normal. Guess what? If you forget some band-aid or whatever, we'll have extras! If you recall, I told you a looong time ago, you WILL have at least one mini-melt down, again so what...it happens to all of us. Try NOT to resort to drinking through it, ask for help or eat and drink water or go sleep it off.

i live in the fucking "city" i have been camping less then the number of fingers on my hand. i owned no camping gear. I once spent a half hour in death valley. bah haha i will admit i know i will never be fully prepared what so ever. but i have followed everything on here and looked at everything i can find on bm. so damned if i don't TRY my best. it just gets me people who are not trying. but don't get me wrong the weather this year is got me a bit scared. never been in a dust storm. health yep. i have Crohn's disease and social anxiety. Im sure I will have a small melt down (i just isolate and deal with it until it is is over). I am ready to face it. this is one of the major reasons i am going as i have said in the past. to fucking bitch slap my anxiety in the face and grow a pair.

That's why I said "fuck him".

If you're tenting it, I suggest a ground tarp large enough to cover the ground in front of your tent to help keep dust from blowing into your tent excessively.
If a dust storm is truly baaaad take shelter in a solid vehicle.

Social anxiety...you ain't on the Esplanade, those camps are required to be open 24/7 and trust me it's lively (been there, my first year!!) I LOVED it & I'm tolerant, lol!

mini melt down, one time I couldn't find the key to my tool box...turns out a sledge hammer works almost as well! There are other examples but no biggie.

Crohn's, careful what you eat and bring your medications (extra just in case). Social anxiety? You're a hair dresser...I think it'll work out.

tattoogoddess - there is nothing wrong with being over prepared and feeling scared is the norm. It can be overwhelming but it sounds like you are doing everything right to prepare. So finish your prep and then relax. You are going to have the time of your life! I am camped near you at Dye With Dignity. I also deal with social anxiety and other disabilities. Feel free anytime to come see me if you need something or just someone to chill with if you start to freak out. I spend a lot of time resting at camp cause of my back and am happy to be there for you.

In the general FUCK category I would like to add that my best friend's hip surgery went ok but now she has a staph infection, needs to be on 6 weeks IV antibiotics. The nursing home they placed her in was atrocious and we pulled her out of there two days ago. The hospital says she can't stay there, the medicine company says she can't be treated at home cause of liability issues or something, so she is basically choosing to risk her life and limb cause none of us want her back in a nursing home so she is just going to forego treatment and go home.

Any of you out there in another country: if there is any way you could help me find and purchase the meds she needs so we can handle it at home I would be eternally grateful. Her mother is an ER and ICU nurse and perfectly capable of treating her, they just won't give us the medicine cause she is on methodone (for pain management NOT addiction but they don't care, methodone equals liability drug user in their book so no home treatment). I need Nafcillin 2mg bottles and Sodium Chloride 0.9% IV 100mL minibags to mix the infusion in and drop a line in her. She needs it every 4 hours for the nest 3 to 4 weeks. I know this is a crazy request but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask. Someone out there might know something and I would appreciate any advice any of you have. PM me.

and a bartender. I know right?

I was diagnosed with social avoidance disorder with paranoid and dependent traits. (clinical dignosis) in a nut shell. I hate going out and freak out about it because i am paranoid people wont like me or talk bad about me or just slap me in the face for being a idiot. But I really want friends so when I make them I sometimes am a bit to much and smother them. I have been working on the keeping my distance when I do make a new friend. It is hard.

I have it pretty bad. I don't go out of my house other then for food,work and to my families house. I was bullied to the point of broken bones 3rd-8th grade. so i feel like im socially stupid. I have problems talking to people, but if they come talk to me first im usally ok but still feel like a blabbering idiot. Like i said this is something im really trying to work on out there.
fuck bullies.

You are so fucking prepared you'll survive. And the rest of this village is so fucking prepared we won't let virgins die. And you don't have to sit out a dust storm alone unless that's what you want. Once you start getting hugs all around, it may help you to trust we are NOT going to eat your liver. Unless you want someone to eat your liver, then we can find someone who be happy to do so. You're already family. Won't make you fast fucking friends with every last one of us, but you're already halfway there.

Yep, I still have meltdowns on the playa. Mostly it involves crying, not screaming. Water, shade and rest usually take care of that. And I'm still nervous about parts of our prep because I'm behind on art, I have been slowed by health, and MyLarry is super busy at work, which means he's not home much, But we won't die, and we'll have a good time.

Fuck, I'm shy, I was terribly shy as a child. Speaking to strangers made me cry. To this day I avoid making phone calls. But I had a couple strokes of good luck as a teenager. One, I made an outgoing friend while living in Iran. I went from weird quiet kid in the corner to a cool kid. I liked it and when I got back to the states I lost it. Back to being the outsider in school. So I quit and went and did something else. Then one day, and I don't recall just when, I discovered I could fake being outgoing. I didn't have to do it all the time, but when I got lonely, I could fake it long enough for people to open up to me. Eventually I just decided, fuck it, I am just going to be bold. It didn't kill me last time, it won't this time. I won't die. And fuck, while I'm still fundamentally shy, I can tap into being fearless.

Burning Man is odd. There will be people so into their own headspace and experience, they will not pay attention to you, or will slight you. But most often, not in a mean way, just as ... oh look shiny over there way. In 11 years, I've only had one person be downright mean and make me cry, and I don't think she realized what a tool she was being. I've had people brush me off, but I do my best to shrug it off, they're doing their thing, I can do mine.

There will be bumps and surprises and detours during your Burn journey. It won't all be smooth sailing. But you'll be fine, just fucking fine. Do be sure to look after your physical health, don't be afraid to rest, if you have to change a plan for your happiness and health, do so. Don't be afraid to ask for help. There will be plenty of support, which is one big reason to be in a village. As for a clinical diagnosis, that's a tool for managing your head and your life, not a prison sentence. I have a family member with similar diagnosis as yours (we can talk about it on playa if you like) and she had a blast at Burning Man. She managed to poison MyLarry by wiping the dishes with Clorox wipes and not rinsing them, but he lived. Huzzah for the med tent!

Fuck, see you in the fucking dust!

True that.
I maybe prepared for a month and most of that was gathering my camping gear. And to think "I" was planning for 3 other virgins :lol:
My thoughts were to make sure I survive and focused only on survival necessities. My attitude hasn't changed much this year, for good or bad.
Fuck! this year, I still haven't gotten around doing anything for burn yet.

When I went to TTITD for the first time, my friend said it was awesome and that I would meet "my people" and, essentially, find that I'm part of something. Well, I live my life in a lonely niche and it doesn't bother me very deeply (I envy easy socializing but the cost of rounding off my sharper edges is too high.) I tend to like being an outsider anyway. So when I went to Burning Man with these expectations, it totally failed to deliver. I have met some nice people and I sometimes find them on the Playa, but I haven't met my soulmate, and I haven't met "my people", and I still feel like an outsider.

But I will say that I can articulate all that so clearly (in part) because of Burning Man. 2004 I'm out there in khaki shorts and a T-shirt and the people in the fur pants sneer at me like I'm leading a puppy genocide. My friend tried to introduce me to people, but she's an artist and a woman and those two things help a lot out there. So I went out to the middle of nowhere and saw some art and laid on the ground until some people on a moped asked if I was still alive. I don't think anyone elsewhere would have asked, so there's that. But I had a really shitty time a lot of the time. And that led me to some uniquely powerful introspection. I'm still not cool and I still have a lot of the hang-ups I always did, I just understand them better, have learned to start accepting them, and learned to like myself anyway.

I don't say this to make lowered expectations, just that there aren't any societal rules (at least none that are authoritative) so anything you "don't think you should do" or "I'm not the kind of person to do something like that" is all mirrored back to. All the rules are in your head. The good side is, unlike chemical drugs, you can change your mood (e.g. if you're miserable and get drunk, odds are you'll stay miserable no matter what.) And there is that "Playa magic" that, like a trickster, will wallop you from some impossible direction.

By the way, FUUUUCK! It's fucking August!!!! Too much to do!

Not a real fuck, just a fuck...but a fuck just the same.

Frustrated, with my own case of expectations and the emotions that go with them. Silly me. Ive worked long and fucking hard to try to give up expectations in other people,things,objects, not to be jaded or indifferent, rather cleanse my own mind of how it effects me emotionally(mad, disappointing, etc..etc..).
insert fuck

But alas again today i find myself feeling royally fucked by our government.(not new). But its the emotional roller coaster I go through knowing that everyone, everyone, self included is letting this happen. (not looking for the FIXIT statement to make me feel better, we all know the answers).
insert fuck
Expecting things from people you know dont have the mental capacity because they are so self involved, to see that what they do to others is just wrong.
Insert fuck
Thinking that someone will just one day go BING, oh shit that was stupid and selfish.

Ok...yup, guess Im done with fuck.
