How do you deal with extreme avoidance causing anxiety? I canceled on a call with a non profit organization I'm offering photography services to, twice, and only just made it through the phone call today. The first time I sent an email with a fake family emergency. The second time I just watched my phone as it rang while I was frozen and unable to answer. I also canceled a telemed doctors appointment I needed to get my ADHD medication renewed because I couldn't imagine actually getting on the call... help.

      This is just what works for me it curbs my anxiety enough that I can function most of the time. I write out a basic script of what I know I’m gonna need to talk about and then bullet points for anything else I think might come up. Also if you have a take as needed medication you could take it in advance

      Do you have anxiety meds? If so maybe it’s time for an update Rx.
