Re: how do you deal?
even thought pretty much every time i go out i feel very very anxious, i do it anyway. I do as much as I can, and realize Im gonna be this way , so i better make the most of it and just try my hardest to reailize I cant hide ...
every time you avoid a place because it makes you anxious, your letting this thing control you, and letting your bubble shrink.
reading books and finding people and websites that can relate to what i feel, have helped me a great deal as well
also, one last thing. Exercising helps to take the edge of anxiety...my psychologist was very kee on the idea of cardio exercise at least 30 minutes as often as you can. It really does make a difference.
hope this helped
