So, you people are going to hear more than my psychiatrist!


That's probably NOT a good thing at all, but my anxiety is just so overpowering, i can't even help myself in my psychiatrist's office when the help is offered to me--where I should (and where I pay for to) share my deepest feelings and get the help I need to function as a part of society. But I'm just.. not a part of society. Anymore, anyway.


I used to be very social. I had a ton of friends. I used to LOVE to talk to people, not dread being in contact with them.

What happened?

Well. I have bulimia. It's embarassing to say so.
I wish I didn't but I do.
Along with bulimia are other comorbid disorders such as body dysmorphic syndrome, major depression, and of course social anxiety.

My anxiety is, like everyone else here, is severely crippling-socially, mentally, and even physically.

Social? What's that again?


I just want to be a little more confident in my own skin.
I just want to be one of a billion of other human beings; not a monster among them all.
I just want to stop comparing myself to others.
I just want to be able to make friends again.
I just want to be able to ****ing live.
Excuse my language (if you care), but I JUST WANT TO LIVE.

I want to be free from any imagined social standing and any thought of "so-and-so probably thinks I'm a retard or ugly or whatever".


SO HELLO, I'M ALLIE AND I HAVE SOCIAL ANXIETY DISORDER. THANK YOU.

Hey Allie

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.

Eating disorders are apparently v common with SA - I had Bulimia too. One person gave me some advice which helped somewhat with certain aspects of my SA - " let them think what they like - it's their right".....ie accept and make peace with the fact that no matter what you do or how you look etc etc , people will form their own opinions and thats ok.... don't be a slave to what others 'might' be thinking.
