I can't convince myself that I'm not faking my disorders for attention. I have had the diagnosis confirmed many times, by many doctors and psychologists, but I feel like I have just fooled them all. I know this is irrational, but I can't persuade myself. Any ideas? Also hi.

    It’s super frustrating especially if it’s a later onset condition. I feel you I have dreams about how I used to be fine and now I can’t handle being around people hardly at all. I think you have to remember you’re not alone and this stuff is real and a struggle. I would give anything to not feel the way I do a lot of days. I think remembering you’re not alone and this isn’t only real for you but a lot of others helps to curb that mindset… 🤗

    I never knew I had social anxiety. I just thought I was a little weird haha. I was always able to be social regardless of how I was feeling (little nervous here & there). For the last 7or 8 years I have gotten to the point that every time I'm going out with friends etc I get extremely sick. I'll throw up or just feel lightheaded. I couldn't accept that this was the "new" me. It's hard to accept that something that can be so crippling at times is part of you. Even with medications & therapy.
