Well. I wouldn't have considered myself to have social-anxiety in the past. Increasingly in the last few years, I've withdrawn from almost every sphere of life. I am engaged and getting married, and that's probably about as functional as I get at this point. I have a few friendships but I'm happiest when I'm locked up.

I live in terror of other peoples' opinions. I interned 3 times when I was in college, and while the reviews my mentors gave me ranged from mildly positive to glowing, I never could shake the thought that they hated me and they were just trying to be nice. I've had similar thoughts of friends, family members, and even my fiance. "They just feel bad for me" has become a common refrain to explain the behavior of everyone around me; a conversation in which family seems distant makes me worry they're all thinking poorly of me.

So uh - this whole thing...stinks. In any case, nice to meet you.
