Re: Long Island New York

I am a member of a social group called the Friendship Connection. The group is run by a psychotherapist and is for teens and adults who have learning disabilities and suffer from social anxiety. The group usually meets at New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury on Sunday evenings. Sometimes, we go to Broadway shows, Roosevelt Field, a Mets game, and take overnight trips. In May, we are going to Cape Cod for the weekend.

How do you take part in it? Does it actually help?

Re: Long Island New York

kayvee - depending on where you are and how far you'd like to travel, you can go to meetup.com, i know there hold support group/activities in the city. i've been to a couple of them and it seems pretty cool, but i don't always have the money nor the means to get there. if i remember its the new york shyness and social anxiety group or something close to that.

No you are not too old for the group. I am 42, and I am still in the group. My friend David is 52 and he is in the group.

Ewww.....that school sucks, at least for engineering majors. Teachers half-asz their lectures and you wont get the best education when it comes to the liberal arts. When i was talking my english comp classes, every single one of papers was an A+ paper, even if nothing made sense or was off topic. The only thing I liked was it was easy to make friends cause it was a small college. I went to the one in manhattan.

Clearly i went off on a tangent......sorry.
