Social Anxiety

I never leave my house these days without wearing a ball cap and shades. I’d like to just keep growing my beard until no one recognizes me anymore.

That's okay. I contracted an eye disease which means I have to wear sunglasses every time I go out into the sun, and usually wear a hat to go with it. It sucks but I have decided I can live with it.

Because I'm not bald, I make sure to have some hair sticking out at the front, to discourage "bro" looks from bald men. That creeps me out big time.

But I’ll pluck the chin hairs first. No hairy face for this women.

You do that. I find sometimes my beard is a magical shield. Take care.

I wear a ball cap, mask, and shades so "friends" from back in the day won't recognize me.

It seems many of us share these feelings. My social anxiety has become worse and worse. It’s got nothing to do with the pandemic though. Just years and years of cumulative stress, crises, and heartbreak. It takes every bit of courage I can muster just to venture outside my door, but no one knows that but me.

Sounds like you should get professional help ASAP. Maybe you're really just hiding from yourself.

Sounds more like the sad angry posters who think every confession warrants professional help need professional help.

This section's become worse than certain more widely-used social sites.
Instead of Confessions, this should just be called Vent or Venting or Spew, etc.

If these ""friends"" are from back in the day (ie 10, 15 + years) then chances are you probably don't look the same and don't need to worry. Fuhgedaboutit.
If you haven't changed much, but aren't walking in their neighbourhoods, then why worry.
If you are walking in their neighbourhoods... why?
