Does anyone feel that our high anxiety makes us isolate ourselves from other?  I certainly do.  When I am really anxious I do not want to be around anyone.  As a result I really have no close girl friends.  My therapist told me one time to take a class in the evenings, something I was interested in and maybe I would make some friends that share similar interest.  Good suggestion, never followed through on that one.  But lately, I feel very alone and misunderstood.  I know it is up to me to change this but having a hard time "getting going."
 
Anyone else feel like this?

Is it possible to find a support group in your area that meets once a month? You can check the phone book or call the County you live in to see what is offered. This would help you to not feel so isolated. And, yes, volunteer at least at one place a week. Make yourself do what is good for you to do. Get out, Gem. Even if you feel anxious. At least you won't let life pass you by. You can still function with anxious feelings. Notice my signature.

So true and you are right.  It is taking that first step sometimes that is so hard.  I really would like to do some volunteer work or take a class.   I just need to make that leap!  Meds were upped recently, because I was on a low dose and I am feeling better, just trying to adjust.

Thanks for posting! wink
