the less you talk, and the more you isolate yourself, the better off you are?

I know that's not the answer but I get myself in more trouble based on things that I say than just about anything else.

Yup. I just don't understand how to get along with people. I wish i did, I don't. Tired of trying. Do you have a dog? Dogs are awesome!

Ummmm...yeah...actually the less people around me, the better my life has become. Turned out certain types of people/personalities were "triggers" for me. Once they were out of my life, it was like a night and day difference....

Honestly, not really. Quite the opposite for me. If I didn't have the social support that I have had throughout this illness, both from my family and from this community, I would likely be in a much worse place.

More of a cat person but mine just died a few years ago and it’s been tough to wrap my head around getting another one.

I had a cat before I got my dog. Losing a pet sucks. It takes time before you are ready for a new friend.

I’ve always felt this exact way, I guess that’s what leads to me being quiet.
