I’m not sure if you can strictly call it “discourse” when it occurs only between you and the singular other person you live with… but the discourse at home lately has been that I had no idea I had social anxiety until it went away. I’m almost never outside anymore, and when I am, peoples’ actions are much more predictable for the sake of everyone’s safety. The amount of weird worries that are no longer in my head has opened up a lot of mental space and energy that I didn’t know were there.

Show Perdita some love!
