For an introvert (i hv goals of building the self esteem and be a lil more outgoing and just be myself ard ppl (with time tho)..hehe), time alone used to be essential and something that is looked forward too, its the time where i would unwind, rejuvenate myself, do the little daily task while my mind and soul just enjoys the peace and quiet or the scenery and sounds around me. We have been married for 9 years and no children yet and that leaves me with plenty of these time alone when the husbnd is at work (shift work) or out doing some of his guys activities/sports. when i'm not working, i'm quite homely, i'd still go out out get groceries and stuff, hv a walk in the mall, go for a massage and the usual womens' stuff.
BUT, after i had a/p, depression would sometimes creep in, and this is when i hv fear of being alone, even if i'm not having panic attacks, coz i hate feeling lonely, and i feel loneliness is kinda an "illusion" of the mind that happens when u are just feeling down esp with conditions like depression or a/p.
and thought of talking to someone who understands coz they have experienced it before, is rather comforting. which brings me to the next point. lol. does members here communicate with each other outside of the forum? personally when i have bad anxiety, i wouldn;t even think of getting online to check emails, but sometimes i think of you guys in this forum and what is being shared here, n it got me wondering have u ever spoke to each other eg, over the phone when u have anxiety and just needed to talk it out with someone who could relate?
