throwing away a life

social anxiety: when everyone else is complaining about work or rude people, or how great the show or that restaurant was. when everyone has graduated and is working upwards, when everyone is smiling and babbling baby talk - you're like... wha? how do i leave my house? there are no experiences to even complain about because no experiences are made worthy of a person who isn't actually living, but staying inside lost looking at a world that's passing by... day by day. How do you get out? How do you get out knowing that you threw away decades of your life.. and memories, moments that could have been made are lost.... how can you forgive when you didnt' even try and remained passive to the situation? i die inside

I agree with the last sentence.

I'm like 10% as bad as this, but whenever I feel social anxiety I take a single shot of whisky.

Then I go out and do whatever I like.

... what you're saying, is you should go out more? Good idea.

You are describing agoraphobia. I had that. For a year. Now I travel the world. I credit taking cognitive behavioural therapy. The social anxiety is a spirit that visits regularly. I just roll with it but never allow it to imprison me.

Do cbt. You won’t regret it.

This is certainly an invisible epidemic in Vancouver.
