No Post

Had some tragic news this morning so will not be doing the post on shyness. Please come back tomorrow and it will be up.

Thank you.

Hi Eve,
Just stopped in to check out the new site. My best friend from high school was agoraphobic. She couldn't leave her yard without becoming ill. Neat idea for the blog. Hope everything is okay with you.

Thanks Jennifer. That's one of the different types of agoraphobia that I was talking about - just limits to where they could go.

I'll be okay - thanks for asking.

Eve- I hope that everything will be okay- is it your kitten? Or something even worse? *Hugs*

This blog is really interesting. I never really thought of myself as having an anxiety disorder- but it would explain quite a lot, like the fact that I tend to hyperventilate when I have to speak in public- even introducing myself at the beginning of a new semester- knowing my turn is coming, my mind goes blank, my heart races, I feel sort of queasy- and all that they want is Hi, my name is Blah blah, I'm a Business Major with a concentration in Accounting, and I'll graduate in May of 2007. I never realized that being horribly nervous about going somewhere I've never been before was a form of angoraphobia, either. I'm obsessive- I've been known to MapQuest an address that is six blocks from my house if I don't know the street. Course, I've always known that I'm OCD and ADD... so why not add a few more. Learning to live with my little quirks makes life more interesting.

Hey, thanks for stopping by. A friend of mine died in a car crash this (make that yesterday) morning. I'm better now - can't sleep - but better. Thanks for asking.

There are many forms and, for lack of a better word, levels of agoraphobia. Social anxiety/phobia is just one of them. Or you could be just overly shy. Keep reading and keep coming back and maybe we'll figure out which one.

I don't really think I'm shy, I don't have many problems one on one- although, if I have to speak to someone 'important' (like the dean or something) I do the same thing... so maybe.
I'm so sorry about your friend, I will keep her family in my paryers.
