Ok I am gonna start making weekly goals. I need a concrete way to measure my progress.

Week of 8/27/07

1. Approach 1 girl
2. Go to campus cafe that I am scared to go to cause its where freshman go
3. Start a conversation with someone I don't know in class
4. Start a conversation with the girl I know in one of my classes
5. Set up counseling appointment

I did #1 today so I have 4 goals left.

Re: Weekly Goals (8/27/07)


Well I guess I will count #4 as done. We have that class on Tuesday and Thursday and both days she started the conversation, but I contributed as well. She talks during class though which I don't always like. I was gonna ask her something right after class just to satisfy this goal, but she left a few minutes early. I think I did good enough on this though.

I approached another girl today as well.

So I am still supposed to go to that cafe and start a conversation with someone I don't know in class. The cafe shouldn't be hard. I'm not sure if I'll be able to chat someone up in class though, but I'll see what I can do.

Well I didn't do #2 or #3. I still think it was a good week though.

Re: Weekly Goals


I went to the counseling appointment and I was open the best I could be! They just had some questions for me and I answered them well enough. I was getting kidna emotional cause this is the first time I have told anyone about my anxiety. It was really eye-opening. As I feared, they are overloaded and so they want to stick me in a group and it's gonna be a group of people with anxiety, depression, different things so not just other SA people. The first meeting is on Friday so I am gonna go and try my best, but I am unsure if it is going to work out. It will be nice to hear other people are having problems too though.

Also I approached 1 girl today so I'm halfway done with that goal.

You've got the right attitude at least. That's something that many, if not most, people with SA haven't yet developed.

I've read that group therapy is best when it's focused on just people with SA as opposed to a mixed bag of other anxiety/depression. In any event, it will be a social opportunity at least. I just wouldn't expect leaps and bounds of improvement, but then again, you might be surprised. Good luck!

He ran because it grounded him in basics. There was both life and death in it; it was unadulterated by media hype, trivial cares, political meddling...It was all joy and woe, hard as a diamond; it made him weary beyond comprehension. But it also made him free.

I approached another girl today so now all I have left is to talk to someone I don't know in class.

Re: Weekly Goals


Ok I talked to someone I didn't know in 2 classes actually today so I am done for the week. I just asked them a question about something in the class so it didn't turn into a conversation, but I was happy with it. Also I went to that cafe I had wanted to go to in my first week so that was good too.

Excellent, daaaave! Well done. Since today's Friday, I assume your first group session is today. Hope it works/worked out even better than you thought!

Re: Weekly Goals


Today was my first group session. It was pretty emotional for me, but I started to open up a little bit. I was surprised how some other people are sharing the same problems so I think it's gonna be good.

Re: Weekly Goals


I didn't really accomplish anything this week. Even therapy sucked cause we just talked about these petty problems some people had. It was hard not to roll my eyes.
