      For me, I usually don't want to leave my comfort items and interact with people I don't like. What helps me is usually saying "I'll see them when I get home. Make the money and then snuggle the plushies"

      This isn't an abnormal way for anxiety to show itself. I'm super extroverted and love going out but when my anxiety was at a high many years ago I would get anxious before going anywhere or doing anything even if it was something I loved. I went skating at the skating rink in highschool every weekend it was my favorite place but sometimes I still felt anxious leading up to it. I always felt better when I got there tho. Its annoying but you just have to work past it like anything.

      I've always attributed this to my ADHD/autism, I'd look into strategies from ADHD help channels and if you see more experiences that align maybe look into a diagnosis. Anxiety and depression are often diagnosed before ADHD but in reality are particularly caused by it.

      Reading this I realized that I do the same thing except I don’t work. But every time I have to go anywhere I have this feeling of dread and I just don’t want to go. But then when I get there I’m usually fine… it’s just the working up to go part that gets me

        @SnowGhost I just wish I understood why??? I know I love my job. It's a fun job, and why on earth would I not want to go home? Why does my brain say going anywhere is bad???
