    Not That I Am Completely Socially Cut Off.

    I just don't have even half the social life I use to. Now my life is filled with case studies, housework, catching up with my partner and trying to relax. I do still see friends, just not nearly as much as a few years ago. - RDW

    I've never been described

    as outgoing, but up until about three years ago, I always went and did things and had friends. I know much of it has to do with my depression, social anxiety, and my numerous other issues (god forbid) but up until lately I always managed my issues. Today, my social life consist...
