Socially anxious at Christmas? try these simple and effective tips to cope.


Are you dreading the awkward Christmas conversations? Are you imagining how uncomfortable you're going feel when you have to sit with all the family, playing games, eating dinner and opening presents with everyone's eyes glaring at you? Are you already envisioning what you're going to say to that elusive distant relative? well, you're certainly not alone it's incredibly nerve-racking and honestly, makes me want to stay at home and not visit anyone.

How to handle public transport when you have Anxiety

How to handle public transport when you have Anxiety

I don't know about you, but the idea of traveling on a bus or in a taxi horrifies me. I can't deal with sitting next to complete strangers, awkwardly catching peoples eyes, asking myself things like, are they watching at me, are they laughing at me, are they judging my clothes, are they staring at my hair, can they recognize how afraid I am, It's constant. I'd rather walk for miles then have to deal with this, but that's not always possible, so I have to endure it. Usually, I'm stuck in traffic and have no choice but to wait and survive this hell on earth journey, which is made a thousand times worse when it's overcrowded I become so claustrophobic, particularly when I've got somebody near enough sitting on top of me. Oh my gosh just thinking about it horrifies me. Its also a germ factory, everyone coughing, sneezing, touching everything it affects my inner germaphobe, and makes me feel sick, out discreetly comes the hand sanitizer. 🤢🤢

How social anxiety makes me embarrassed to make and keep friends

How social anxiety makes me embarrassed to make and keep friends


Do you ever walk towards a crowd of people and feel...
your body sweating, uncontrollable trembling, your mouth feels dry, your breathing becomes heavy, you suddenly feel sick, you become dizzy, and your thoughts are racing so fast in your mind, one after the other telling you to turn around and run straight home. I feel like this on a daily bases and it makes socializing extremely hard to deal with.

How social anxiety ruins every single night out for me


Nights out when you have social anxiety can be so scary, just the idea of walking into a packed place is horrifying especially when you probably only know like two people there.

Signs your happy and unhappy in your relationship

Signs your happy and unhappy in your relationship

Do you ever have feelings of unhappiness in your relationship and often visualize a better life? I certainly do. I've been with my partner for several years now, and while we do love one another and live a relatively happy life we often argue and resent each other for days afterward, and most of our arguments are petty and ridiculous.

Dealing with a cold? try some of these tips for quick relief


I know this is not my usual type of post because its nothing to do with anxiety, but I'm feeling like absolute rubbish right now. One of the worst times of year for me is winter I'm constantly suffering from colds, and they can litrally last for weeks the sneezing, sniffing, coughing, dizziness, and high temperature makes me want to sleep the entire duration of it away.

How my anxiety affects the most simplest things


So this morning I once again woke up late but I managed to keep on schedule and get my son to school on time, then got on a bus and awkwardly sat down wishing it would hurry up so I could get home. Once I arrived at my stop, I got off the bus felt in my pocket for my phone and realized my weekly rider wasn't there it must have fallen out. The bus was still sitting there allowing people on and off, but I just stood fidgeting in my pocket pretending I was searching for something to save any embarrassment. Now considering the price of that bloody ticket, I should have quickly got on and got it back, but no I decided to stand there looking like an idiot and instead walked away while silently panicking.
