Shy people, egocentric?

Posted 12th January 2017 at 15:32 by indigo777

Shy people are egotistical, vain, self centred, narcissistic? I have heard all this before over the years and that part of having SA is all about your ego as you must think you are so important if everyone is looking at or thinking about you when you go out. I think this concept is mostly balls and heaps even more guilt on people often already racked with guilt for something they did not create or want. Its similar to the idea still having shyness past a certain age is all your own fault for not...

Inactivity due to Depression and Anxiety

Posted 27th September 2016 at 13:49 by indigo777

Inactivity: A vicious cycle can develop in which you feel depressed, and then become less active (you donít feel like doing anything). The less active you are, the more depressed you feel. If youíre having difficulty breaking out of this cycle, write out a daily schedule by the hour or even half-hour of what you will do when, and then stick to it. This will seem very difficult at first, but itís enormously useful. Schedule a few walks around the neighbourhood or a nearby park. Exercise is a great...

Things Only People Who Suffered From Extreme Shyness Will Understand

1) Family gatherings with anyone other than your immediate family were an absolute nightmare.

2) You did absolutely EVERYTHING you could to avoid making or answering a phone call.
Again yes although i did get much better at work before the C**ts made me redundant....

Coping with Depression

Posted 17th June 2016 at 13:06 by indigo777

I have found it very frustrating to look up ways of coping for depression. Just as for anxiety much of it seems totally irrelevant or to be written by somebody who has never had it.



1. For depression they keep telling you to meet people talk to people and be with people. Ooops I am a weird loner and know virtually no one due to lifelong social anxiety which is the main cause of all my depression in the first place. And of course if you are depressing then no strangers...

Must Try Harder

Posted 2nd May 2016 at 20:08 by indigo777

I mentioned before I joined elefriends a while ago. Its a site for people with mental health problems designed a bit like Facebook I suppose where people can leave messages and others reply to them. However like most sites I just read all these people speaking to each other and feel like I am on a different planet. It doesn't get better or easier like the message says, it never does. I try to make some replies and comments to others but they are ignored. When I have made some myself they did get...
