I dont know if this counts as anything REALLY D&D related. But I wanted to know a way of forgetting a traumatic D&D session and to get back into the game? It putted me off DMing a game (or playing rather). I wanted to get back into but I can't.
So the story goes is my girlfriend made a D&D campaign for a group of close friends of mine. But she was too scared to DM it. And begged me to DM it for them. Which I said yeah because she wouldnt stop bothering me about it.
Anyways, Me having social anxiety tried my best to do it. Of course, everything went wrong where the logic wasnt good and I was heavily critisized for it because I screwed up alot, Anyways, my girlfriend got a piece of paper and asked everyone how the session went and what could be improved for the campaign (not the person running it btw.) And so they all used the piece of paper to cuss me out and to beg me never to DM again.
... Also they all made a group petition on said piece of paper to make it a rule to never come to my house again and to make sure I never DM again. Basic gist of it without the "flavor text" IE: Swearing and name calling towards me.
Anyways, How do you guys get back into D&D yourself after something I consider a traumatic event?
This was a few years ago. Like maybe 5 years but the thought still hurts and makes me hyperventilate still..
Reason why I ask is because people are asking me if I want to. And my girlfriend still wants to play and doesnt want to unless I'm there to play with her. I'm sorry if this seems a bit personal but I thought I would ask some experts ^^'
