I don’t even, A) have any friends lol, and B) I probably wouldn’t go anywhere with them if I did. My social anxiety is so bad. Good on ya for getting out with your buddy and watching the game. It was a good one!

I dont have social anxiety but have bad negative symptoms so its rare that I chill with my friends but yesterday 3 friends picked me up, we had mcdonald and then chatted in the parking lot for while, talking and listening to music in the car.

Im drinking some tea. Gonna make a coffee next. Feeling good except for some intense anxiety around my future. I worry I will die tragically

Thats cool, I like cats but Im allergic so I cant pet them much or my eyes get scratchy lol

It makes me anxious.

Definitely me too. I should exist in the present more but meditation makes it worse

I used to be able to block out all thoughts

If its really bothering you I would tell the Dr, I had a friend who was prescribed Citalopram for social anxiety.

Ever since my doctor put me on clonazpeam for sleep I have had zero anxiety, but that isn’t surprising given its a benzo.

Yes I think I will. Im insanely unorganized in my personal life so I lost the appt card lol but Ill call them tomorrow. I know its in late july tho at least

Thanks man! I hope it would help

Yes @Headspark a benzo might be great but I am a known addict lol my dr will not prescribe. Prob for the best even tho Im not a downer guy
