I have this very weird blend of being introverted but terrified of being alone. Sometimes all I want in this world is to be left alone and sometimes I am utterly desperate for other people around. ts fun! In the last few years I've really developed anxiety issues, particularly with talking on the phone. I've even had my first full blown panic attacks not that long ago. I've found that having a calm place or activity is the best thing with anxiety gets too much, Hum a song, go for a walk, draw something. Just take your mine off of the worries for a bit. At least I find that helps me. When it comes to phonecalls I DEFINITELY use scripts. That's helped me a great deal.
