does anyone else get nervous to do ANYTHING in front of family , even if you’ve known them your whole life? i get so nervous to ask for food or other needed items. it’s hard, especially when your parents just tell you to get over it.

    yes, 24/7. personally i think it might be due to my ptsd or just general anxiety, im not really sure but i hope knowing you're not alone helps!

    Absolutely!! I think for me it’s based on the micro aggressions they’ve shown when I present a need or want. The judgement is what made me shy away. If you’d like advice, a shoulder to cry on or someone to listen hmu! 💕

    I agree w a lot of the other folks here - definitely tied to PTSD/ trauma & safety. I dealt w it by gtfo as soon as I could safely. I haven’t confronted my family about it, but making my own systems of support that they’re allowed to play a small, controlled part in feels so much more safe & sustainable

    Yes!!! I get this way in front of friends too. I think at least for me, it comes from being constantly shamed by them for everything I do (not my friends shaming me, my family shaming me). I try to just do things on my own

    I suffer from General Anxiety Disorder, panic attacks etc. The psychiatrist prescribes BUSPARION, Lexapro, and Latuda.

    Yes! My family will sometimes say very sweet things, but in the moment they aren’t actually there to support me, and tell me to push through or to stop focusing on myself. Sometimes mannerisms say more than words, and communicate that you are seen as a burden. It’s not your fault. ❤️
