Social anxiety

Not quite sure what to write but am struggling with a few things and some of it might fit into the social anxiety box. Anxiety and depression might figure in there, I'm not sure.

Just thread really, it's a bit hard to put into words.

Can you start by telling us one thing you're finding difficult?

Opening up to people, answering the phone, having the confidence that won't screw things up somehow, wanting any attention, even nice attention for example on my birthday. Am also quite an introvert but have been avoiding people other than a few close friends, more than is usual.

Struggling with bits of the whole parenting thing a little too and might pluck up the courage to see the Dr about that, getting things done that need to be day to day, just long term things are getting to me.

Sorry to hear you're going through this. Maybe making a list of things which are bothering you and then taking this to your GP would help? flowers

Thanks, appreciate the kind words and a list is a good idea. Will do that.
