This was going to be a reply to another thread I started, "Jobs for INFPs". I used to work for FedEx when I was about 19. That was a time in my life when I suffered from really bad social anxiety and depression. I almost forgot about this; maybe I repressed it. Sometimes I would go into the restroom and lock myself in the stall and try to drown out my thoughts and calm myself down. It was crazy! Life was completely miserable. I'm surprised I didn't commit suicide; which I've never attempted, by the way. It's amazing how far I have come since high school. My anxiety was so bad that I quit going my senior year because I couldn't handle the mental turmoil. Mornings were always the worst. I ended up getting my diploma from night school. I remember days where I would lay in bed all day long because I had no motivation to do anything. I didn't want to eat, socialize, or do anything. I didn't want to kill myself because it would hurt the people I loved and cared about the most. But my misery was so overwhelming, I just wanted to go to sleep and never wake up. I was too scared to even seek professional help. I'm trying to remember a specific turning point in my life, but nothing comes to mind. I can still be shy and quite introverted, at times, but I'm completely capable of being social and even being the center of attention. I don't think I could ever get to that low of a point in my life again. Has anyone else ever struggled with dibillitating social anxiety or depression?
