I am really amazed at how many people suffer from social anxiety. I have felt so alone for the last 10 years. Although I am married and have children, I feel so lonely. I try to make friends, but it seems people are so quick to judge me before they even get to know me. I take my boys to ball practice and the ladies treat me like I am not there and give their looks, I try to smile, all the while I am crying inside and when I get to my car, sometimes I do cry. Do they sense that I am different or are people just that mean? Im ready to make friends that can relate to what I am going through and not judge me.
