Default Hi everyone!

I thought I'd stop lurking! Sometimes I just want to jump into the conversations.

I'm not new. I've been here on and off under other names.

I've come a long way in managing my social anxiety, since I became aware of it, about 10 years ago, but it is still a work in progress, and I don't think I will get rid of mine ever in my life, but only learn to live with it.

Anyways. Glad to be back!

Great to have you back tortilla! Not sure if your name is inspired by the Mexican food type or the Spanish cold potato omelette types (which tastes nicer than it sounds). I was in a cafe today and when I paid for my latte I saw lovely thick slices of fritatta, which is pretty similar to Spanish tortilla, and I couldn't resist . I hope you enjoy the online company of your peers here, I am at the stage of trying to accept my SA and work with it to find situations I can do well in rather than aim for some vast personality change at my stage of life (early 50s).

Thank you for the welcome Lotus and Chess

NFL_fan, thank you, I'm looking forward to being more active on here, although in the past I have not been consistent, so I might not be again in the future. I love pretty much anything fried or potato-based, and especially both combined so I too couldn't have resisted those frittatas!

What kind of change have you given up on? I'm sad that you think you can't do it, but I also understand that retreating and healing are necessary phases. Keep trying, as long as you remember to have fun along the way and be kind to yourself when it doesn't work. I hope I'm not sounding too optimistic or naive! In my early 40s here, but still hoping to make friends and hold down a job. At your age, you still have plenty of time.

Thanks for your kind words tortilla. I guess I mean at this stage I'm not going to ever become a party-going extrovert and I'm OK with that. I wish you all the best with changes and goals you are trying for though.
