28/F, lifelong sufferer of SAD. I lost my ability to work outside the home over the past year or two, due to SAD. Since June of this year, I've been on a self-designed treatment program, with the help of my therapist, to overcome this, rather than just ignore it or work around it like I'd been doing in the past. Basically I'm doing all the stuff that scares me, but in a controlled, incremental fashion, and with a lot of in-depth knowledge of how my SAD manifests and all the fun cognitive distortions that come along with it. It's a lot of hard work, but hopefully it will be worth it.
Anyway, a lot of the issues I have with interacting with people in real life also apply to interacting with people online, so coming here in the first place is a win for me. It took me three days to get myself to actually make a post, but I did it! In my world, you take your little victories where you can get them. *high five *
