A Constant Battle!

I've suffered with Social Anxiety, since age 6. I wish I could tell you that I'm getting quality treatment and therapy in this. But honestly, my therapist is crap, when it comes to this issue. She was good with the depression... being that she let me talk it out and gave me medication for it. lol.

But with the anxiety, meds don't seem to work for it. And her therapy is pretty low-key and boring and it doesn't help. Most of my strides in breaking in anxiety was all myself, WITH the encouragement of my best pal Philip. Which, she resents my steps and help from Philip, with a passion! BUT, this isn't a story about how much my therapist sucks... and she does! =p

I am trying to get use to the phone more. And I can answer the front door, a feat I was never able to do before. And I can eat in my favorite diner and go into a market, without panic attacks. But anywhere else... there is a problem. :-/

I am working on it, or trying to, on my own. So, anxiety happens for me, everyday. Especially, when the phone rings! :-o
