Good day

Standard

Stayed at uni last night and didn’t really accomplish much (including eating 😦 ) but I went out this afternoon to meet a friend from a social anxiety forum who lives a few miles away. We’d only met once before but we went to see a film and had a fairly long chat in Starbucks afterwards. It was really nice to see her again and I think we got on quite well. I managed to talk quite a lot by my standards and I don’t think she was too bored.

Back home now in preparation for my CBT on Monday, but I’m annoyed because I forgot both my phone and my meds 😦 I found one 150mg tablet here but that’s going to have to last me 2 days.

Things have certainly improved since this time last week when I was probably at my lowest point for 6 months. I’m going to try and stay positive and keep working at CBT and aim to spend a bit more time with my flatmates (though I have a creeping feeling that I am starting to annoy them when I am around more, like they can’t really enjoy themselves if I’m in the room).

  1. That’s great that you went to see someone! Especially as you don’t know her that well…new people terrify me!

    Really pleased for you!

    Hmm…times like that I bet you wish you were Harry Potter…you could duplicate the tablet and there’d be no problem!

    Funnily enough, I feel similarly around my flatmates…but, it’s probably paranoia! I have a problem with taking things personally…sometimes people have certain mannerisms, or may just be having a bad day, but you get the impression that they don’t like you, or that you’re annoying them, that may be the case, rather than them not enjoying themselves when you’re in the room!

  2. Cheers weezy, new people scare me too but it’s a little easier when you are both in the same situation.

    As luck would have it, I found a spare one in my bag so I was ok over the weekend! 🙂

    I know what you mean about your flatmates, I do that too. It’s easy to read far too much into someone’s mannerisms or what they say. The book I have about social anxiety talks about this kind of thing a lot, but of course it’s one thing to read it and another to actually believe that it’s not always your fault if they act badly towards you.
