I'm going out of town this weekend with a group from school...don't laugh but I've only been away from my husband and kids once since they were born for a long weekend to play ball. Since all the new meds and diagnosis' I'm afraid how I'll handle being on my own. I've been withdrawn the last few weeks and worry if I'll be able to sleep even with my ambien. I have my Prozac, Lamtical, Xanax....I'm still a little scared. I don't want to freak out in front of anyone or feel pressured to put on a false front which I tend to do with a crowd. so I've got my own room and stuff. Ugh.....need a little encouragement here.

I hear you. My social anxiety has improved dramatically over the past year. I at one point a few years ago, could not leave my home at all. Then that lifted but I was still afraid of people a lot. Then I started making myself go and all those times I had fuN! It turned out to be "safe" and I had a good time which left me feeling aweseome!

I think it's comforting that you have your own room and honestly I think you are going to be suprised at how much fun you'll have. At least that is my hope for you!

Think positive and feel reassured that it is possible to overcome your fears!

Let us know how it went!
