Hello! It’s Lau and today I want to make a continuation of a post I wrote around two weeks ago, My Social Anxiety.
If you haven’t read the post, I recommend you do. So, if you’re new here..Hello! I’m Lau and I have social anxiety. If you couldn’t tell by the title.
It’s a personal struggle I deal with, and it’s about time I let you know a little more about it.
So, my social anxiety is a little severe. Quite often I will be talking to someone and they will say “I have social anxiety but I’m not as bad as Lau”. Only in the past year have I seen it dramatically worsen, it’s the main reason I don’t leave the house unless I have to, like for college.
This year is come to the point that I don’t necessarily want to text anymore and phone calls are out of the question. I can’t even pay for things on my own, I ask my friend or my mum to do it for me. I just give them the money and wait for them.
It’s made life seem like I can never do stuff on my own, which I can’t. With this anxiety, I feel like I can’t get a job.
If I’m with other people, I can walk through a little crowd. And when we are past it, its a sigh of relief.
Living with social anxiety has its negatives but it has its rather strange positives.
- Not leaving the house is the best part of your day.
- When you’re out and having fun the anxiety slowly goes away.
I don’t quite know what point I’m trying to make, but that’s the end of the post.
Thank you so much for reading and I’ll see you all soon.
