Here for Other Reasons

I feel no pressure to do drugs or alcohol. I’m here because I have panic and anxiety disorders. I don’t function well around other people. You all give me influence to keep trying to be myself around other people and not be an empty shell. I’m actually an outgoing person on the inside. I love people. My favorite thing to do is help others. I get so much joy out of seeing other people’s smiles. But I’m held back because of my anxiety. I’m not giving up. One of these days, everything will change, and I will be able to meet new people with no problem. Smile every day. 🙂
