Social anxiety isn’t “omg I hate people lol I wish I was sleeping and watching netflix!”.
It’s “I want desperately to be able to hang out with people but I hate the feeling of sheer panic and fear I get around them so I don’t/ can’t and it eats away at me every day so I end up just staying home and say I’m sleeping or watching something”
That heartbreaking, crushing feeling you get when you’ve gone for a dream job interview and don’t get it.
I have this about twice a month and it’s killing me.
Like really killing me.
I don’t know how much more of this I can take.
