Re: Social Anxiety & BP
Yes, I can totally relate, too. I used to be so outgoing, have lots of friends and aquaintances, and I never felt any anxiety about going around people. Now I have closed myself off to the point where I was actually happy to move across the country so that I wouldnt run into anyone I knew, and feel obligated to have a conversation with them.
I feel embarrased still because I know that in manic states, I have blabbed a hundred miles a minute and said things that were waaaay to much information, or other times, I have been depressed, probably come off as uninterested and rude.
I've felt stable for a while, (until lately) but sometimes I don't even want to take out the trash or get the mail cause a neighbor might start a conversation with me GOD FORBID!!- I guess it's all part of the disease. Thanks for making me feel like I'm not alone. (I wish my kids could have known the old me!!)
