    Hi everyone!

    Hi people! I have AvPD, which makes it hard to make friends in real life, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a chat with other people who can relate to my problems! It would also be nice to make some friends, so message me if youd like!

    How to get my life back?

    I'm in probably the worst state I've ever been in. I graduated high school kinda recently. Ever since then my anxiety has worsened. I'm at the point where I don't really leave the house. When I do go out, it's a process of trying to "look presentable". Only to lead me feeling gross and...

    The root reason for worrying about weight
