My friends were having a get-together and I was terrified of going. I almost turned around three times on the way there. But I promised myself I would push past the anxiety and stay for at least 45 minutes. I wound up staying for hours and had a great time! The only thing that allows me to make massive progress is forcing myself to face anxiety head-on. It sucks SO BAD but I want with everything I have to have a life again.
In other news, I’m going in the morning to meet a little kitty named Charlie who may be my new therapy animal! She’s old and has special needs, and I want to give her a comfy home.
