“I started a new job today and was super nervous the day went okay except for when going on a group tour of the building i was the only one who forgot my security badge so I couldn't get back through, everyone laughed and I know its silly and I probably should of laughed too but I felt so embarrassed and stupid and then found it really difficult to hold a conversation or concentrate and I was doing fine socialising until then, I just went bright red and started shaking, I hate my social anxiety.”
