I did it, went grocery shopping

Now to 99.9% of the population this is no big deal. But for me, it's major. I suffer from severe social anxiety, so for me a trip to the store means tons of anxiety, usually a panic attack and normally backing out of even going.

But not today.

I woke up this morning feeling pretty good. Paid all the bills, which made me feel good, nothing else to pay this month. So I decided to use that feeling to try to make it to the gas station to gas up (another thing I have problems with, always feel people are staring at me at the gas station). Success. So, I was feeling even better, so I decided I'd try it out, go get groceries.

And I DID IT! Kept the panic under control. It helped a lot that there weren't a lot of people there and no strangers talked to me (I seem to be the person that attracts the overly friendly people who wanna talk, which makes the panic/anxiety even worse).

So, there you have it, one small accomplishment, but it feels really good. I went to the store (by myself), got my groceries and made it home. Yes, anxious and panicy, but I kept it under control for the most part. Except I did sweat a lot bit  lol
