At least you kinda know the root of the problem which will help you moving forward. I was once married to someone who’s 6’4″, he always called himself a genetic freak too and I think you both need to stop that! And I can understand some anxiety when entering a social situation but I don’t understand my deal with the store, either. Is it the gal at the register? Is it dreading the question, “How many kids do you have?” That’s what I thought it was before… I don’t know now.

They say one way is to just keep putting ourselves in those uncomfortable situations until they start to feel more and more comfortable, and you’re doing just that. Some days easier said than done. I’m happy to hear you taking steps to overcome this!

Sometimes I’m the fuckin life of the party making people LOL and such but other days I just can’t bring myself to go to the store. And when I do go to the store or whatev it has to be one that I’m familiar with.

I talked to my therapist about it and she feels that since I was made fun of so horribly as a child for being tall, that I feel like other’s are doing it. Which is likely because I am a genetic freak, uh hello 6’3″. We came up with this project that I’m gonna put up on my blog when things with Pops settle down. I’m hoping that it’ll help rid me of some of my anxiety and help others as well.

And yeah, you rock!

Oh I didn’t realize you felt the same way about vent. We seem to do fine in vent as long as we’ve had a beer or two! (In fact my doc suggested I smoke or drink if that will help that initial anxiety lol). I hope you know, and I always say, that I’m open to suggestions and feedback. I want to learn and get better. I’m a great student too! *Blushes thank you for letting me know about my Priestness… I think it *was* a block of mine to call for help. Being a priest I guess I figured I should be able to heal myself through anything. Maybe some ego mixed in there too, I don’t know. At any rate, thanks for commenting and listening. Glad to have you as my partner!

I have extreme social anxiety when I speak out loud. Of course this makes it a lot worse because I stutter and physically can’t talk when I’m nervous. The bigger the group of people, the worse it is for me. WoW has helped me a lot because I don’t have to talk. I do a lot better typing as you can tell, so I can be social. I never would talk on vent in our guild, guildies would ask why and I would tell them. My guild has always been accepting, there was no mocking, just light ribbing that “o Iina never talks in vent” when some pug would ask why I was typing everything. This actually isn’t true because I would say things like “hello” when I entered vent and “I can’t reach (insert name here, for healing purposes)”. I’ve gotten to know some of my guildies in person and they know that just sometimes I have trouble talking. Meeting them, talking to them and knowing they don’t judge what I say has helped me a lot in growing out of my shell. I’ve been trying to go out of my comfort zone, meeting people and talking to them (I might get to meet a new guildie later this year). I still have trouble talking but I’m working on it!

I know I don’t like social gatherings either and I keep to myself most times, yet I teach for a living and teach others who are the most skilled in our field. This also comes through in the game with me rarely being in vent unless we are running arenas. Sometimes it’s because I just don’t feel like talking, or it may be because I don’t think it’s my place to offer suggestions. Or fear that someone may take my suggestions the wrong way and be offended by them.

You ARE an AWESOME Priest! I’m not just saying that because your a good friend, but because I have played and witnessed many a Priest play. We all have room to grow when it comes to high-end PvP. If a person says they don’t need to know anything else, they’re lying or ignorant. Matter of fact, on my video I made a long time ago of us doing 2’s on Alliance side, all the comments were directed at me, not protecting you well enough. We shall get to 2200mmr! Just time, dedication, and communication. 😀 GREAT POST!!
