I often have nightmares where I am in college but I haven’t finished high school so I have to go back to my first high school and take classes and it’s embarrassing.
when I told a crowd of people, from a stage, that I have social anxiety disorder, the leader of the crowd did something unexpected and warm. She sympathized with me, but did not pity me, did not attempt to relate her own experiences with social phobia, she did not try to diminish my pain. She didn’t even say anything. She just welcomed me with open arms into the crowd.
