I’ve noticed I’m super socially-awkward at work.
I never know how long to maintain eye contact with others, or how to jump into conversations in groups.
The people at my job are nice, and I’m good one-on-one with them (minus the “eye contact” thing), but as soon as there’s a group chatting I just panic and don’t know what to do.
Customers I can handle no problem, as the interactions are need-based and I’ve been working retail for years so I can get by.
I feel like this illness has robbed me of my ability to socialize casually.
Can anyone else relate?
