So, I've basically gotten past a good portion of my anxiety issues. YAAYY!!!......BUT! Now the confusion has begun. I still have those thought patterns that I had, although noticeably changed to make them more sensible. I still make excuses to myself about not going out and doing things. I don't make a very conscious effort to make plans with friends. So basically I'm having a bit of trouble getting the social engine started. I know a big part of it is that I'm just scared that if I do more things my anxiety will flare up, or I'll be obligated to do more and more things that make me feel anxious. I do still sometimes feel overly anxious because of some things, and it's not a huge problem as I am making progress with it, but I'm curious if others have any input or experience to share?

Congrats on moving forward through your anxiety. It is a good feeling when you recognize how well you've been doing :)

Part of my therapy with my a/p was getting out and back into the world after the worse was over. It will be hard, but you will begin to get ever better once you gain more confidence in yourself. I do suggest if you still have problems with socializing, you might want to speak to a therapist to help you with small steps.

Good luck to you and keep us posted!
