Supposed to play drums for a band tommorow, its there end of year performance exam, and i messaged them before saying that am not going to play for them, and that they will have to do the gig by themselves.

They rang me asking why i wont be turning up, i tried to explain that i have had panic attacks the last few weeks leading up to this performance and that i thought i had it under control. They said they would ring back tommorrow to see if i felt better.

The truth was, my face had been getting gradually worse leading upto the performance, and the thought of getting up infront of a crowd of "hip-cool-fresh-faced-indy-fuckwits" ie students, killed me. so i thought "fuck it"

The crazy part is. that i have played gigs before with countless other bands, even when my face was worse and it never seemed to be a problem, but being at university and having 0 social life, and pretty much hating everyone i come across while being here isnt exactly the time of my life.

and all the while. the only thing i can think of is "IF ONLY I DIDNT HAVE SPOTS''

I fail at grammar btw :(:boohoo:

You've played at gigs before with acne, so I don't understand how it could be different. Wouldn't performing in front of a new audience provide more opportunities to interact? That's a way to improve your social life. It's not going to happen being miserable in your bedroom.
