What is it like living with Social Anxiety?

There are all watching my every move. They are plotting and planning against me. Whispering about me.

I am a nuisance. I am slowing down everybody else. Everybody would be happier if I wasn’t there.

Do they really like me or is it all a lie?

I probably got off dumb luck. There is no way I deserve this.
