New to the Forum

Hello, I suffer from extreme social anxiety. Even posting a few sentences on here makes me feel like panicking.

Welcome. Pretend we're just surprisingly good artificial intelligence software, if it helps.

Hey Dyanstar, welcome to SAS.

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 just joined too and this will be my first post. I wasn’t planning on posting/replying to anything yet because of how hard it can be for me (& because I’m new & still figuring out how this all works lol) but seeing your post makes me feel better knowing that im not the only one who feels this way.
