Hello


I’ve joined quite a long time ago but haven’t been on much . I’ve had SAS since a kid the symptoms of it can vary day to day week to week. Lately I’ve been feeling a lot of social anxiety and isolating myself. I wanted to say hello.

Hey SolitaryShadow, welcome back.

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.

I don’t leave the house much. I have a difficult time just taking the garbage out. I avoid the neighbors. I’ve had this for so long so I doubt I’ll ever get over it. I used to be much worse . I finally can go to the store if needed although I have to psych myself up to do so. Today I drove out of the way to go to the grocery store I’m most comfortable with. I’d like to get out more so I’m working on it.

Do you have a job or school that you need to leave the house for? How old are you by the way?

You need to start exposing yourself to social situations. Start small. Just one goal everyday. Give it a month or so and once you accomplish your daily goals for a month or so you will be amazed on how much progress you will have made.
