Blogging Social anxiety

I know, I know

I haven’t blogged much recently. Someone even asked if I was OK.

In case you were wondering, yes I’m OK. Sometimes I’m saddened by things I see online – things I would never have seen in the old days. But generally I’m OK and saving up my blogging energy for April when I plan to blog every day as part of the A to Z Challenge.

In the meantime, I suggest you listen to this BBC play, which goes a long way to showing what social anxiety is like. It’s a difficult topic to tackle, as I’ve found in my writing, and I think this play is quite successful.

Hurry up – it’s available for only three days.

(Thank you, Annette, for drawing my attention to the play.)

Thanks Miriam and Annette, for the link to the play. I too thought it to be very effective at tackling the subject of SA in a serious yet engagingly humourous way.

I listened to the play too. It seemed to me that the message was that only people with SA can help others with SA and that there were some easy solutions. Nevertheless I thought it had some good insights.
I also noticed that the girl said she had been fine until she was 18 and that her father had died young. Is there any link between SA and trauma

That’s interesting. I didn’t get either of those two messages. I don’t think there’s a link between SA and trauma. Unless losing her father made the girl feel different from the rest, causing her to withdraw from society.
