If I'm waiting for someone and they're really late, or if someone goes out for much longer than I'd assume it would take them, I start imagining they're dead.
I then start planning what I might say at their funeral, who I should ring first to let them know, wondering if I'll actually cry or if I actually am dead inside....
then they return. Do I just do this as a defence mechanism? I have tricked my brain into thinking that if I think the worst, it won't happen.
Ermmmm... anyone else?
