The Express Yourself meme is a weekly jaunt brought to you by Dani at Entertaining Interests and Jackie at Bouquet of Books. At the beginning of the month the girls will post a gadget with a list of topics, something different for each week. Make sure to head on over to either of these blogs to check out the details more fully and see who else is taking part.
This weeks topic of conversation: What is the biggest challenge you face socially?
After I had my daughter it took a little while before I started going out socially again, and when I did I found I was very anxious and had one or two quite bad panic attacks. It put me off doing a lot of things for a long time.
I've since seen a couple of therapists and I'm doing much better with it now, but I still have the odd occasion when I feel like I might have some kind of relapse. Enclosed places, jammed packed with people are always the worst situations for me.
With the help of some amazing friends and my lovely husband though, I've managed to claw my way back to some normality, and I know they're there for me if I feel like I'm having a bit of a wobble. I really can't thank them enough for helping me through.
Have you any worries or challenges you face when going out and about?
