The War Rages On My brain has officially shifted gears into overdrive. I last slept sometime early Saturday morning. I have tried to hold it together.

Online Counseling Helps People With Social Anxiety

When I'm at a party, I usually find one person to talk to or I find a dog, a cat or even an iguana to talk to. The reason for my behavior is that I have severe social anxiety. I appear to be extroverted, but in actuality, I am an introvert. I would rather be [...]
