Default Evening All

Hi All

Not really sure what to write here but here goes...

I've always had some form of shyness and anxiety, and since a romantic relationship ended badly over 20 years ago, I've been by myself. Tried SSRI's but they had some rather unwanted negative effects so I stopped those quickly and the CBT didn't work at all. I did sign up on this forum a few years ago, but never posted anything until now.

As a way of hiding my SA at work (I work in IT), I have tendency of behaving and acting like those around me in order to try to blend in, but this makes me feel horrible as I know I'm not being myself, but at the time, it just happens. I suppose you could call me a social chameleon

Anyhoo, I just thought I'd say Hi... Hi

Hi Robert and welcome.

I can relate to you on behaving and acting like those around you then feeling stupid later because I know that isn't me. But I know I have to do this otherwise I could be seen as boring.
