just breathe 145 People

    things. I try to hide it by picking at my skin, cleaning, or puking. I try to write during it, but sometimes it gets so bad my mind kind of goes crazy. I go blank and I start hearing voices and seeing things. I go through this trance type thing, feeling fake and unreal. I...

    Happy New Years 2013

    Hi

    I have social anxiety. It used to feel as though everyone was judging me and that I was a worthless failure. I was afraid to leave my house. I lost most of my friends. I started cutting myself and prayed to die. Now, I can walk down the street without feeling like I'm doing...

    It's not easy. It really isn't. From my POV, social anxiety is an incurable disease that not even therapy can remedy, regardless of how hard you try to conquer it.
