It's strange. When I was young I found it very hard to mix.but now, in my 50s I am incredibly sociable. Although it must help me in dealing with my mental health issues, it certainly didn't make me immune to them.
Since you ask, my anxiety is playing me up a lot. I tend to feel a lot of guilt for being unwell so Im saying to myself, I didn't make it happen and I can't make it go. That's my new mantra and for me it's a good one.
