Oh yeah it has effected my life in several ways. Job wise I’ve held several jobs but never long term, even though I do have a college degree I can’t put it to use because the interview process is really difficult for me. I really don’t have any friends...not in the way most people have friends. I can’t seem to open up myself emotionally to people for fear of being judged, the same goes for dating, if I do find someone I’m interested in it takes a long time to feel comfortable enough to be totally open. My way of thinking is I’m gonna walk away from a situation even if it’s a good one before I get rejected or hurt in some way.
