Social Anxiety Confession #3
I can’t stand when people tell me that my diagnosis isn’t real. Especially that I’m doing it so I don’t have to take responsibility or become an adult.
Um, I have a job. I pay my own phone bill and pay for my own gas. I go into the doctor office on my own and make my own hair appointments….
I guess they just don’t understand what huge steps those are for someone with a social anxiety. It’s the same as someone with arachnophobia finally being able to kill a spider.
But in the end, it doesn’t matter. Because I am proud of myself :). And I know I am doing everything I can to better my future.
* if you have a social anxiety or any other kind of anxiety, I am here to talk or to listen :)
