I'd like to introduce myself here.
On the surface I may seem fairly normal, reasonable job, average family, kids, all that, but there are so may areas where I hide or work around my fears.
At work, I hate having to work with other people, to ask for help. I work twice as hard to get things done myself. Hate having to use the phone.
I have no friends ot talk of, always feel like an outsider, never get to know people.
I've always been like this, working hard to hide my issues, getting by, fell back on alcohol for years (I'm 45 now). The alcohol has gone now, I can see myself for who I am. I want to feel good about myself, not hiding who I am.
Not sure if this is possible, or where to start.
Hoping to get to know some people here and read about their experiences.
