I was at a little house party today and after an hour or two I put my jacket on and just did a quick 'brb for a bit' to my partner and took myself on a nature walk. Normally I over do it, feeling like I'm committed to being social by being there, and then feeling trapped and stressed. But I just made a soft exit without feeling the need to explain myself, and walked as long as I wanted until I felt interested in coming back. It felt good.

After finishing his lunch, my manager walked through the office and was laughing like crazy because he has just lost a tooth. One of his molars randomly fell out while eating.

Considering this is something that happens in my worst nightmares, I triumphed over anxiety by not having a huge panic attack and vomiting in my lap while he was talking about it. It was close, but I managed to hold it together.

P.S. FootFace, I always meant to tell you how much I appreciate you! The way how you always respond to every comment in this thread makes me feel so goddamned safe and held and seen and I just think you're the bee's forking knees.

I haven't posted in here just lurked around, but I managed to go to a thanksgiving dinner with my old roommates at their house full of people. I mostly stayed quietly to myself, but I didn't make an excuse to leave early. And I told my physiotherapist that maybe I would like to talk to their in house therapist which is both super scary but maybe something I should have done all those years ago when I joined up with this place.

Thank you, Mars. That means a lot to me.

Yeah, I've tried to be an overcoming-anxiety cheerleader. I know how much anxiety sucks and how good it feels to start getting your life back.

You took positive steps!

Echoing what Mars said, you've been amazingly supportive and helpful for so many of us for so long. I didn't post often, but I would come and read what folks where going through and your comments always made me feel stronger.

So last Saturday I had plans to go to Modern Love with Tofulish, Jojo and Doncherryfan. I have met Tofulish and Jojo but not doncherryfan. So it ended up being just me and doncherryfan which I normally wouldn't be able to handle and would've backed out but I didn't and had an awesome time (doncherryfan is awesome and made it easy to not be anxious).

You didn't back out, and everything was great!

I pulled myself together and booked an appointment with the doctor to discuss my acne! It's next Tuesday. 90% chance this next week my skin clears up more than it has in a decade...

But still, I've been putting this off due to anxiety for a long time.

Climbing these hurdles can make such a huge difference! I mean, seeing the doctor (or the dentist, or finally calling the accountant, or whatever) can have positive effects. But the act of getting it done is big, too.
