I tend to keep my distance from people. I'm naturally outgoing and talkative, but I learned to keep a lid on it the hard way.

If they are the kind of personalities who you get on well enough with (in your own personality), then yes..

And those are one of the blossoming of a true friendship, as true friends will always go through think and thin with you..xx

I think they do sometimes. Good friends will never say they find your anxiety hard to deal with, but when you have an episode in front of them or aren't responding like normal it's only human to not know how to feel on occasion. A good friend will deal with your ups and downs though. If they abandon you they were never a real friend to begin with.
