*You won't be able to isolate yourself
*You will be sharing limited space with others
*You have to commit to the week
*You will need to work as a team and consider the needs of each other/support each other and communicate
*You won't be able to have your person of 'safety' with you, such as partner and you'll be getting to know new people
*You may be outside your comfort zone

REASONS WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT:
*Escape from normal mundane life stuff
*Mental distraction from symptoms through activity/work
*Learn new skills, such as Navigation
*Informal peer support and a chance to spend time with others who understand and share symptoms/experiences
*Achievement
*Time away from modern life 
*An opportunity to make new friends who 'get it'
*The Tectona is beautiful and full of character (built in 1928)
