I know it's like spitting into the wind (I think there has been the grand total of 2 DP meets in the past four years), but it's DP meeting time.

I will arrange the logistics if we can come to a consensus on location (London is usually preferable), date and time. No excuses, especially psychological ones, will be excepted. Acceptable excuses would be:

Death
Going to a funeral

And that's it.

London is usually the preferred location, as it's easiest for most people to get to - being central.

Of course, for people that are working or are students, Saturday or sunday are best.

I might be able to go, it wll be a bit of a trip from where I live to london but I could get the train I spose. How soon or far away do you think would be the best time. I have a 2 week holiday coming up for the next 2 weeks for easter so that would be a good time for me.

Brit types: this is a good thing, honest. You need to jump on it. From my experience meeting with fellow DP/DR people........there's nothing like it. I can only assume a group meeting would be even better.
I know there's a bunch of you out there, and you have the one and only Mr. Martin willing to set things up. And dreamcatcher might participate!

If London wasn't a 7,000 mile drive from where I am I'd be there for sure.
I only wish us Americans had better organizational skills.........

The reason they haven't happened that often before is two-fold.

1.) People say 'yeah, I'll come', then you hear nothing else and the post drops down the forum.

2.) People get themselves whipped up into a panic at the thought of (delete as applicable), travelling, freaking out in front of people, panic attacks, innumerable neurotic complaints, meeting strangers, etc, etc, etc. It's easy to make an excuse and a fight (a worthy one IMHO) to face your fears and stick two fingers up to them.

There have been several DP meets, I've attended two, and they really are worthwhile. Lewis, who is possibly the most courageous young chap I've met - who has been DR/DP'd out of his head for 8 years, came all the way from Southampton. I've met Rob and Whiterabbit, and Hannah, Paul and Simon from Andy's old board, and everyone agree's it's worthwhile. So, once again, the choice is yours. Either sit at home and slavishly post on this forum about how miserable and trapped you are feeling, or tell your DR/DP to go screw itself and come and meet sufferers in real life. You never know, you might even (shock horror!) enjoy yourself.

London seems to be the best bet, on a Saturday. If people are interested in coming, then PM me with dates and times that you would be available, and I'll try to get all to come to a consensus. I'll also find out how much it will cost you to get there, train/bus/coach times etc....I'll also dance for you if you like. :shock:
