I learned more from a couple uses of amphetamines than I did in a college class on public speaking (though it did help).

I went from socially anxious to an extremely nerfed anxiety response.

That's my experience, don't take it as truth. Playing with drugs is a dangerous game.

I personally don't really like any drugs. They tend to make me feel like shit.

Yeah, I don't either. I've been on a total of 14 of them just within the year. The only ones that didn't give me horrible side effects just did nothing at all.

And when I say horrible, I mean it. Depakote had me crying nonstop and in a constant state of fear and loneliness. Abilify made me feel like I had to pace continuously or my head would explode. Seroquel caused spasms so bad I couldn't sleep. Pristiq destroyed my digestive tract and gave me a pounding headache. Etc.

Drugs are (mostly) bad, mmkay.

I've had it since sometime in high school. 23 now, and still dealing with it, but it's been getting easier. A few years ago it was so bad that I literally couldn't speak a word in groups of 2 or more people. But I've had a lot of shit happen to me that caused me to give less and less fucks over time. And not only that, you also start to realize that your social anxiety is ridiculous and that there's literally no point in letting your mind have such a negative control over your body and actions. You also need to realize that nobody really cares about you as much as you think they do. I also have adopted a sort of negative belief system that is helping my social anxiety slowly get better. We're all going to die one day, and no one is going to remember your little moments or even your entire person in one hundred years, which is nothing when compared to the time span of the Earth. Everything is meaningless, why live miserably, when there's no point?

I see one thing you all have in common. You are all into anime. Half joking would share a story but am on the bus.

So deep as always. You seem a tad depressed with that thinking though.

If I could just learn how football works, I would have an endless box of communication materials to work with.
