Hey Guys....Hoping someone can advise...My anxiety levels are chronic and having panic attacks in the mornings..I try to meet up with my friend every Saturday when hes off work ...I have Aspergers Syndrome and socializing is very difficult to maintain..mainly due to anxiety and exhaustion trying to process the conversation...but I have noticed that after I have been out with him..i feel really stressed and anxious...takes me ages to calm down...I don't have any friends that I see apart from him and I feel very isolated...When I meet him..I would like to just have a bit of a laugh but he is always talking about his work and all the negative stuff that he deals with and when were in the car...hes constantly irritable and shouting about all the drivers on the road and pointing out their mistakes...I have told him his angry tone makes me feel anxious due to my sensory issues in Autism...he apologises but then does it next time....I wonder sometimes if I'm meeting him due to being isolated...or Am I being unreasonable as he has a lot of stress at work? Appreciate any help x
