My typical day....wake up, have breakfast, come online for like 5 hours look for jobs online for like 2 hours, and fill out applications online, have lunch take a shower, watch a little tv for about a hour, come back online for like 2 hours, sometimes exercise, come back online, then go to bed.


how i wish my typical day could be......wake up, take a shower, go to work, go to school, go to the gym, go to the library to do homework, talk to some friends, come online for like an hour, go to bed.

Wishing and hoping one day my life will be like this :(

Typical day, huh? I guess wake up, get online, at some point get bored, take a shower, get back online, eat, I guess, go outside if I have to, then online or TV until it's time to sleep. It is a sad, pathetic existence. :(

Without SA and all the other things that afflict me, a typical day would involve waking up, going outside for a 30 minute jog, taking a bath, eating at a nearby cafe, maybe do some work from my laptop, then driving somewhere interesting, spending the day on something that doesn't involve a keyboard and a mouse, getting back home, making some dinner, watching the news, checking my e-mail, then sleep, hopefully without all the tossing and turning. If a wife and friends were added to this equation, even better. :|

Wake up, eat a snack, workout, eat breakfast, shower, practice guitar for 30 minutes. Then I spend the sunshine time looking for a job in my field and reading stuff online. At night, I head to my dead end retail job. Come back home and soak in a bath while surfing online with my netbook. Practice guitar for 30 minutes and sleep. Rinse and repeat ad nauseum. As I said before, the days blur together to the point I don't know my own age without doing the math.

Ideal day? Something/anything different...hiking with somebody on the trails in the area would be a good start.

My typical day is getting up late usually, so I get to work late. Get on the road to go to work and within a few minutes I'm feeling assaulted by all the cars on the road and that they are trying to look at me or mess with me, so I flip my mirrors outward and upward so no one can see me in the mirrors (dangerous, I know - I do turn them down when merging in traffic). I do the whole stopping at the right place at stop lights - just to where they can't look over into my car and see me. I hit the gas to pass by truckers, I swear they are always looking down at me (I'm a girl and feel really always stared at by men even if its not true).

I get to work, go in my cube, don't talk to my friends/coworkers til about 10 since I'm not a morning person. I get bothered when someone comes IN my cube without permission, especially when I'm eating. Noisy people at work really bother me.

Fight the world on the way home again in the car, feeling safe at last when I get home. I go out in the evening but not alone much anymore, my husband is my safety buffer and I prefer to go out with him.

It is EXHAUSTING trying to "protect" myself all day, which is whey I'm hoping to start therapy again this week.

My basic day with SA is kinda like I wake up and then I make breakfast. Then I go on the computer. Then I stay on the computer. Then I stay on the computer even more sometimes and on some days I wake up. I go see a movie or I go grocery shopping or something. On SUPER rare days. I'll go for a walk or do something different and new. Mostly when I wake up I already know what's in store for me. So I'm never too happy about waking up.

If I didn't have SA I would probably be waking up make breakfast. Feel great and then go for a long walk and then come home and do something important things and then go out and do something exciting. Or attend a class I joined or something. Or i would dabble more in my hobbies that I keep putting on hold..

I wake up eat breakfast, check email, think about all the stuff i need to do and what I can avoid for a while longer. Eventually i get outside and usually drive to my Dad's house as he's one of the only people I'm close too. I'll do some gardening and come home, a while longer online and sometimes sleep or sometimes staying awake until the sun comes up and feeling guilty when I wake up at 5pm.

If I didn't have SA, I would take classes for horticulture.

My typical day? Basically I struggle to get out of bed at 5:30 every morning, get in the car, get on the train and read the newspaper.

Then I get to school and pretty much spend 6 hours in a haze with my only agenda to get to 3:20.

Then I get on the bus, go home, do homework, go to sleep, and prepare to do it all over again the next day. Fun.

I stay up late, so I wake up anywhere from 11 to 2 (summer time) and I get dressed, brush my teeth, and usually have lunch, which is breakfast to me. Sometimes I don't eat lunch/breakfast. Then, I spend my entire day online, with occasional short bursts of television, and the only other thing I do is play video games :/ Rarely get outside.

If I didn't have SA, I don't know. It's actually hard to imagine.

Typical day over the summer:
Get up at 7am, shower, go to work, do nothing until lunch time, go home, eat lunch with my family/watch T.V. until its time to go back to work, do nothing until its the end of the day, go home, eat dinner with my family, watch more T.V., go to sleep.
Where i live over the summer this is pretty much the only thing there is that i can do, so what i'd like to do is out of the question for that.

Typical day during the school year:
Get up, shower, go to school, sit in class and take notes while not talking to anyone. Go home(alone), eat, do any homework/studying that i have to do, watch T.V. and play on my computer simultaneously (most regular T.V. is too boring to get my full attention), go to sleep.

Typical day i'd like to have:
Get up, shower, go to school, sit in class with friends, hang out/do something with said friends, Go home, tell my girlfriend about my day, hang out with her for the rest of the night, go to sleep.

Wake up as late as possible, drive to work. Come home, make tea, have shower, do housework, iron and set up my uniform, muck around on the computer, go to bed.

I'm naturally a fairly introverted person. I don't need to socialise everyday, and I'm happy just to come straight home. SA comes in to play when I need to blow off some steam, and on my days off. I can't just go out on a Friday night (which would probably make me a happier person).

Typical days (semester/term breaks) - Wake up in the afternoon after a night of sleeping late. Shower, see what's on the television. Go to the gym or exercise if I feel like it. Use the internet for hours on end. Sleep at probably 4 am. Rinse and repeat.

Typical days (school) - Wake up, always late for school, shower, go out in a rush. Go to school, try my best to socialize, go home. At home, it's pretty much me and the PC. Surf the internet, play a few games.. seriously.. **** my life.

Typical day i'd like to have:
Wake and bake. :D No, seriously.. Wake up, go to school, have fun and study at school at the same time, chillax with my buddies, go out with my girlfriend and just looking foward to life.

Typical day as of now is I get up, go to the bathroom, watch tv, go online for like 4 hours, watch some more tv, eat, read a book, take shower, watch more tv, go to bed. When I have school it's not much different, except I get 6 less hours to basically do nothing, and I have homework of course.

Without SA I'd probably have some sort of a life, at least hang out with friends, which I have none at this point. I'd probably be also out actually doing worthwhile things, maybe have a job, car, and moving ahead in my life to at least some extent.

Get up, get on the computer visit sites and play video games all day long, monday wednesday and friday I workout.

If I didn't have SA I'd go out and do stuff with friends, that's my guess anyway.

Typical day now that I'm unemployed: Wake up, watch some tv with fiance, help him get ready for work, turn on the computer and look for jobs....spend way more time online than I intended to, with bouts of wandering around the apartment and staring out the window wishing I had a reason to leave the apartment, eat something when I finally realize I haven't eaten something, then back to the computer or watch tv for a while. And sometimes I'll cook for something just before my fiance gets home and then we'll eat and watch tv and go to bed.


Life without SA: Wake up and go to job I LOVE, successfully interact with colleagues, leave work, attend a class or go to the gym, go to dinner or drinks with a friend (or my fiance but his work hours wouldn't be changed by my lack of SA lol), do something new every weekend, go on more trips, take more risks with my hobbies and possibly turn them into a career, etc.

My typical day would start quite early (around 4am) cause I would, as usual, have had trouble sleeping. I would stay in bed in hope I can go back to sleep (rarely happens). I would prepare breakfast and watch TV. Then,... Practise piano, write some stuff on my laptop, watch tv again, read in my backward (at times), write some e-mail to my friends (occasionally). Special days would include going outside riding my bike around the neighbourhood.

An ideal day for me would be: be excited about waking up cause I would know I would do something fun and different every day with my friends.

The first thing I usually do when I wake up is brush my teeth. Then, I eat something and go on facebook. I often am disappointed by the lack of people I feel I can talk to on there. I might play lexulous on facebook. I get jealous looking at pictures of people having fun though. I pretty much am on the computer using facebook, playing games, using stumbleupon, or watching videos. I try to work up the motivation to study but it is hard when I think about how much my life sucks. Every so often I will try to find something good to watch on TV but there is usually nothing. I am dating someone but when don't hang out everyday more like once a week. Even that doesn't seem to be going well. Probably because I am boring :(

Without SA, I would like to have a well-paying job where I have lots of co-workers that like me and that are fun to talk to. I would hang out with people a lot more and do fun things like shopping, going to bars, going dancing, etc.

I have a fairly simple routine:

1. Wake up and drag myself to work
2. Spend all day at my crappy job wishing I was somewhere else
3. Come home and play video games/surf the internet/procrastinate
4. Fall asleep, dreading the next day

This has pretty much been my whole life the past couple of years. Weekends are practically the same, just less work, more being lazy.

Without SA, I would get up every morning refreshed and ready to start the day at a job I love doing, have friendly conversation with my co-workers, come home to a loving gf/wife, chat/hang out with friends a while, play games for a little bit, then fall asleep at peace with myself and the direction my life is headed in. One can only dream, though.
