Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Okay, I'm going to make this simple, as the subject is embarrassing, but the amount of stress it gives me is far, far worse.
I am terrified of thunderstorms.
Not the average, normal kind. I'm talking 60 mph winds, hail, lightning hitting shit kind. And don't even get me started on tornadoes. This never used to be a problem until last summer, when the St. Louis area was hit with a massive thunderstorm that, at the time, I was convinced was going to kill me and everyone I ever cared about. I've lived in the midwest all of my 20 years, and I'd never seen anything like it.
Since then, whenever there are thunderstorms, my mood has gone from "a little jumpy" all the way to "oh god a tornado is going to come and murder me in the night".
There's a possibility of severe storms over night. Those are even worse for me, since they can wake me up, or set my house on fire while I sleep, and I don't have a damn person to talk to during it.
I guess the real reason I'm making this thread is to ask for help. Not just "what should I do about this", but a sort of...support group thing. People to talk me down when I start freaking out.
