Welcome back. I'm coming up on 10 years here in a few months. There's a few of us from that time still around. What was your old username? Probably people around that remember you if you posted much.
Hello,Hello everyone and I hope your day is going decently. I thought I would check back in on here.
I first joined the forum back in 2013 or 2014 (albeit with a different account as that got locked somehow), and spent a lot of time on it in those days. In fact, it was my only source of a social life, and a great place to seek support and meet new people.
I think that nowadays, there are lots more support platforms for social anxiety. I also think that society's perception of social anxiety has changed - not only is there more awareness of it, but more and more people are able to seek support. I'd also hope that there is less of a stigma of it, as with anything mental health related.
I felt a bit nostalgic and decided to start using the forum a little, in addition to myself feeling a need to seek more support online due to my current living situation and some health issues which can leave me a little isolated. I also have some issues and addicitions which I am trying to keep well away from, so engaging in a community like this is one way to keep me on the right track.
So, whether you are relatively new on here, or a site oldie like me, how is your day going, and what is your current SA situation?
Likewise, 09 for me too, & I still come on here to vent but I’m far more sporadic in my use now, lol.Joined in 2009. Back then I was mostly looking to vent. I still have social anxiety issues but now I'm at a place where I want friendship in addition to support.
