Demon defeated by D&D

November 5, 2017 - 14:55 -- Admin

I had to drive across the ACT and back and in doing so had an anger attack about childhood. When I got home I announced I was rubbery in a quavery voice, went to the shed and cried.Then my son came in and asked if I wanted to play D&D. I've been running him through solo adventures starting at level one. He was midway to a ruin to explore it when we last we left it having critical killed with a scorching ray a dire badger before it even got out of its den mouth. I said no initially.

Before I ride the exercise bike I hang up my number plate style pre-weathered NO ENTRY sign on the shed door. I'm easily startled and with PTSD and the bike facing away from the door I can potentially trigger if someone comes in behind me whilst making the unpleasant sound of the door opening.The sign, however, flaps in the wind and makes nasty noises when it clatters against the door.
