Being out in the big wide world can be a scary thing at times.
Imagine being out in the world where a car back firing can cause heart wrenching fear, driving in the car produces anxiety way beyond all reasonableness, crowds of people equal danger, unplanned and unknown situations are to be avoided and the simple pleasures of just being social can turn to disaster very quickly.
Exhausting to say the least.
As a partner I'm now hyper vigilant when it comes to social situations or if we are out in public. I look for potential situations that I know my Mr won't handle and try to intervene or remove us from them.
We are not an easy couple to be around at times. We need understanding and patience and family and friends can understandably tire of this. Being around someone who is constantly depressed is not easy.
Anti-social probably best describes us now.
A night a home with our pups and our own company seems to work best for now.
How do you handle social situations? Do you find you avoid going out these days?
