You deserve a big bear hug! Hi, and thanks for the friend request. I know exactly how you feel, I too have a problem with social anxiety. Mine is so bad that I dont have any close friends in
my home town. For some reason I always find some sort of fault in people just that I dont have to be bothered.I want to change from this so bad, but its hard to find someone that truly understands me. Hopefully, some day soon things will get better for us. If you need someone to talk you can pm anytime. Talk to u soon.
