You know it sucks? I have nobody to talk to most of the day. I work from home and don’t have any real adult friends other than my wife. I thought at least during summer vacation my kids would want to hang out with me and talk but they have summer school, video games and, of course, their cell phones so no time for dad. I really need to make a friend outside of the Internet because I would like to have a normal conversation with an adult other than my wife. but I seem to have forgotten how. Social anxiety is terrible. First you don’t want to go out then you stop talking to people on the phone and online and finally shut yourself off from the world. Now that I am on medication that seems to be working I have the desire to go out and make friends but no clue on where to start.
This really sucks!
