A GUIDE TO ANXIETY
This was a difficult one. Hope it helps!
So, this made me sit down and really consider how much the anxiety I developed as a kid has stunted my ability to socialise and generally function as an adult. I was ‘friends’ with the wrong group of people in primary school, and I was left so distressed by the bullying that went on that I’ve found it incredibly difficult to make friends ever since. Even though I can recognise the whole situation as total bullshit, I have refused to trust that there are people out there who might genuinely like spending time with me. I go outside so rarely that my doctor told me I had the Vitamin D levels she’d expect to find in a fully covered Muslim girl. If I didn’t have Will in my life, I honestly think my mum would still be my only friend. The worst part is, that even knowing how sad all that is, I still can’t pick up the phone and call someone and say ‘I don’t know you as well as I would like, we should hang out.’
