I've always had anxiety issues related to my ulcerative colitis and socializing . It has reached a point where I am anxious about everything now. I am able to tolerate a social event if I have a couple drinks to relax my mind and body. It allows me not to obsess about where the bathroom is and who's going to hear me. This may sound silly, but it is reality for me.
Just wondering if anyone else has this issue and if they have a solution other than drinking. If I'm home by myself, i don't feel the need to drink.
I read an article about social phobia and it pretty much described me.
I wish I could just accept what was dealt to me in life.🤔🤨😏
