Life is a lot better now. I feel more confident going out.
What helped me
Talking Therapy
I saw a professional who helped and spoke through various strategies which helped. Eventually even had the courage to take the train to Liverpool and watch the football by myself.
My Story
I struggled to go out the house for any reason with the exception of going to work. I did not like the feeling of not knowing who was going to be out.

Where I am now
Life is a lot better now. I feel more confident in going out and doing activities by myself whereas previously I would have stayed at home.

There was always that feeling of being different, of not belonging anywhere. It took many years and trial-and-error to find the things that help me today.
