Smile Hello

Hi everyone,

I've been a lurker on this forum, on and off.

A few years ago, I discovered I had social anxiety when I took my eldest son to his first day at nursery/school. I was overwhelmed with emotions I found strange back then, but which I now understand were symptoms of anxiety.

Being new to the area and English not being my first language did not help, as many parents seemed to already know each other and to already have formed groups.

My son is in Year 2 now, and every time I'm approaching the school and enter the playground, I still feel a bit sick, my mouth is dry, and there's this big knot in my throat.

Since the new year began, I've been watching a motivational speaker on social media, and it's given me boost to start taking action. So today I went to the school cake sale, something I never had dared doing. Ok, I ruminated a lot afterwards, but I'm proud of myself. And I already have a meetup date to go out with other SA sufferers in my city.

So I'm hopeful, although it does feel like SA is here to stay forever, right now, at the moment, I'm hopeful...
