I have severe social anxiety as part of my GAD diagnosis. I try my best to avoid any social situations without there being a serious obligation attached. Weddings (unless it's one of my children's) and funerals of friends don't make the cut. Going to a restaurant is arduous and I cancel eating out at least half of the time after it gets planned. You can forget shopping, especially at Wal-Mart or any huge store. Otherwise I'm pretty social. I guess my point is to try and describe what all of the people within the group that is aware of our disorders have to adjust to. I have a few family and close friends who are remarkable in their tolerance and acceptance of my many quirks and fears. I just think it might be a good time, at least for me to show them some sincere appreciation for their caring reactions to us. One thing I'll do is to commit to putting the seat back down every single time.
