    Are You Hard Work?

    I also have noise intolerance so am much more like a bogey man than I realised. *checks for slimy armpits*

    Are You Hard Work?

    Glad to hear you're a Fungus fan- I'd love to just bury myself in some muck for a few years if things became too much- bogeys have all the best ideas.

    I really like the way the bogeymen are really phobic about noise and either whisper or hiss if they want to communicate- can definitely relate to that.

    Yes, in fact Fungus has always been a hero of mine! I particularly like the idea of bogeymen burying themselves in the dirt and coming out when all their problems have long gone.If only!


    I think if you start to study human behavior to any extent you see that most people like others similar to them so avoid nervous, miserable or weird people making practice of any event that much harder. The pressure to be positive and humorous in order to be liked or accepted is evident in real life sociable events or even online so this in itself puts people off with behavior problems keeping them avoidant.

    I agree with everything you say. I'm only really comfortable with people who are just as melancholy as I am (have you ever read Fungus the Bogeyman, Indigo? I think I'd quite like to be friends with Fungus!) so friendship oppurtunities are quite limited to say the least!

    Still Shy At Your Age? I Don't Believe It!

    ^ Yes, I suppose giggling and blushing is seen as OK flirtatious behaviour in girls but not boys. My reaction is more to blush and look absolutely petrified which unfortunately is not particularly appealing!

    Still Shy At Your Age? I Don't Believe It!

    Yes, any gender issues are always contentious and often only lead to futile arguments about who has it worse. Its just that I have read books and seen TV programs where young women giggled and blushed and this was seen as attractive but not the other way around. However this is almost always in relation to fancying someone and not full blown SA which affects friendships and everyday life as well.

    Still Shy At Your Age? I Don't Believe It!

    Interesting blog- I'm in my 40s too and I have similar feelings. I remember when I was young though I used to really hate the way people used to trivialise my 'shyness' as 'something you'll grow out of' so at least now I'm a bit past my peak (did I ever have a peak?) people can't patronise me quite as much!

    The only bit I disagree on is that SA is more acceptable in women- I always felt really disliked and rejected for blushing, talking in a whisper, looking timid and all that business. I don't think that I've ever really felt as if anyone saw it as appealing because I was female. Maybe being a bit bashful is more acceptable in women but full on social anxiety seems to be seen as pretty unacceptable in both sexes?

    Great pictures, Indigo- the top one makes me feel quite nostalgic. I think it reminds me of one of my favourite walks here in Sussex.

    I'm going through the same thing and it sure isn't easy. My Mum didn't get any grandchildren either but I don't think she minded- she always did prefer cats.

    Anxiety, now with added depression!

    I dont know, having used SAUK for so long I see no evidence of more understanding people here whatsoever. In fact all the chatty witty people here get on best with each other just like in real life and usually ignore everyone else.

    Yeah it certainly can be a vicious cycle. What you described above is certainly a mindset I've encounterd numerous times.
    I recall many years ago asking my sister why she never hangs out with one of her friends anymore, to which she replied "oh she's depressed now nobody can be bothered with her". I thought this was a bit harsh considering they had been friends since kids...

    Not everyone really thinks about why someone isn't interacting with them. A lot of people assume a quiet person is being snooty. I think we being the way we are, are a lot more understanding and open as to why someone is being quiet, which is why it doesn't seem like a big deal to us.

    Anyway at least not everyone carries such a mindset.
