Social Anxiety is probably one of the worst possible things to live with in today’s world, with the constant need for emotional expression and the inability to understand that quite a lot of us are afflicted with one or another mental illness without disgust or contempt. I spend hours upon hours toiling on the most irrelevant of matters. For example, what I may have said to a rather cute girl working at whatever place I decide to patronize, or something I may have done while some random person I’ll more than likely never see again may have witnessed. Sure when you actually think about it, its ridiculous to waste even a minute reconsidering what has already passed, but for some reason or another the thought pops back in my head again and again and again. Most people could hardly give two fucks about what’s happened after the event, it just seems to me that everyone is doing the same extreme analysis that I torture myself with day in and out. Maybe medication is the right path, I simply haven’t seen any good arise from the use of them whether from personal experience or the results my family members have had. So if there is anything to take away from this, its that you’re certainly not alone.
