cordila Posted November 30, 2007 Report Share Posted November 30, 2007 This dysautonomia has turned me into such a shut-in, worry-wart, shrinking violet, wall-flower. In my former life I went to school in a foreign country, traveled the world and moved to many of the largest metropolitan cities all by myself. I used to be this free-spirit who danced all night and always said yes to any promising and fun adventure. Now? I live with my parents and freak out about any invitation that includes being anywhere other than home. I've become so timid and tender with myself and my surroundings and the more I baby myself, the more I worry that I'll never return to that free-spirit I once was. Does anyone else struggle with loss of confidence in their body that filters over into their mental and emotional life? Any tips? Please help. I miss the old me and I don't know how to get there from here... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
