Social anxiety and networking

Hello! Have we met? My name is Allison and I have severe social anxiety.

I know what you are thinking….. I’ve met you Mommy Rambles….I follow you on Twitter….We are Facebook friends….and you do NOT have social anxiety. You talk and laugh and make jokes….

The part of it that you don’t realize is it takes me hours of building myself up to even enter a social situation. And the entire time I am there, I am shaking and scanning for the nearest door. Or bathroom.

The main reason I love my blog and the Twitters is because I can connect with people without having to in person connect with people.

I have been invited to my very first bloggy function.

It’s a little one.

It’s close to home.

It would be amazing for beginning to network.

I was asked by someone I trust and who is my friend.

….so what’s the problem?

I am terrified.

Absolutely, completely, totally…..
