I get really anxious with social interactions

I've been a quiet person since I was a child, I thought that maybe I'm just shy. But it's starting to get worse when time passed. This anxious feeling while talking to people is starting to get in the way of my daily life and it makes going to uni very hard.


This is for anyone who could benefit from a space to give and receive peer support for chronic illnesses and their symptoms.


Check out what's coming up in the Online Community and RSVP to attend.
