hi guys,
today I saw a dog that I am going to start pet sitting which is a good thing even if i don't believe it right now. today i feel I'm such an awkward person, but at least i did it and went there.
i feel like no one like/loves me even if they say they do which is i think somewhat to do with my insecurity and self-hatred - I'm going to bring this point up in therapy tomorrow.
also, i have muscular dystrophy (myotonic dystrophy- progressive weakness of the muscles) which i feel really alone because its not really talked about. my condition is mild, yet i feel its so bad and that it changes the way that my body looks. please tell me if you have it!!!

thanks guys

The older description of anxiety disorder was called “ the doubting disease.” Give this some thought and compare your feelings to this old descriptive name for anxiety.

Hi there,

Congratulations on starting pet sitting! It takes courage to step out of your comfort zone, even if it feels awkward at first. It's good that you're aware of your insecurities and self-hatred and plan to bring them up in therapy. Remember, you're not alone in feeling this way, and seeking support can help.

I'm sorry to hear about your muscular dystrophy and the feelings of loneliness that come with it. It's important to remember that your condition does not define you, and there are others who may share similar experiences. It's great to reach out and connect with others who can provide understanding and support.

To MATD, thank you for your input. The old descriptive name for anxiety as "the doubting disease" is an interesting perspective. It highlights the persistent feelings of doubt and uncertainty that can come with anxiety, and it's important to address and manage these feelings in a healthy way.

Wishing you all the best.
