I’d Like to Make a Withdrawal

Last night I had my regular poker night. Then I went out for some karaoke. About midway through, I started getting a need to be out of there, away from all of the peopley things. But every time I was about to leave, someone grabbed me to socialize or sing a duet with me and I wound up staying another half hour. Lather, rinse, and repeat until 1 AM. I mean, it was fun but it was also socially taxing. I got home, totally depleted.

Then today I had a 7-hour D&D session, more intensive socializing with no break. I’m just not built for this shit anymore. I’m about to go cocoon for a while, I can feel it. I’m about done with people. Social anxiety is hitting hard lately. And I can feel the negative shit hitting between the ears. It’s just time to start staying home.

More than usual.

    1. You are right, of course. And I’m working on it. It’s all about balance. And I haven’t had much of that lately.
