Re: Social anxiety
Jul 19, 2003
thanks for your all your replies and support. iīm still traveling and still finding that i am having social anxiety, such that is affecting relationships with people. i am aware i have this anxiety issue and i can see people kind of noticing that iīm kinda flaking out a bit and they are maintaining their distance. it sucks. i hate it... so bummed. i still have trouble maintaining eye contact with people or it is really uncomfortable at times to maintain contact. this is not because i am bad or am trying to lie or anything, for some reason my head just hurts, and then i donīt want them to see how wasted my eyes look, how vulnerable and lost my eyes look. donīt get me wrong i donīt take drugs or do anything of that sort. i mean i have tried so hard in my life for stuff that iīve wanted school, work, everything, i donīt know how long i have to suffer... this is really hurting. i was supposed to take a break from everything and even though i am at a nice beach town right now, i still have this issue. i have been running every day or so for nearly 40 minutes. i have even been swimming out in the ocean and learning new watersports. i mean when i finish these activities i do feel relaxed, my body does, but my eyes and my head just feel zoned out. itīs seriously driving me crazy. i met this really sweet girl over here and would love to see her and start something up but because of these anxieties i donīt want to lose it around here. oh my god she is such a gem too. i feel like iīm pushing people and possible relationships away that i think would be very good for me, things that i need because of this crap. iīm thinking maybe i need to get back on lexapro or something. as i had tapered off it since the psych said it looked like it wasnīt working for me as i incremented up to 20. maybe the lex wasnīt working for me earlier because i was working and still under stress. now i have no reason to be stressed. i mean i think i definately felt better with the lex at 10mg and 20 or so... does anyone know how easy it is to get meds overseas or to go see a doctor overseas and get something like lexapro (esp in Spain?). so just to reiterate i have been exercising a lot, but it is not helping enough! i seriously donīt know what i can do, going nuts...
