I found that the best therapy was to accept the fact that I cant go around people. Yopu can only do two things, modify your enviroment or modify your attitute, personally, I tried both and found that you cant modify your enviroment. You are doing the right thing by telling someone about it. I am not going to,lie, is not easy, people will not understand, they will think is wierd, absurd, childish...and some people might even think is funny (most people do). but the more you talk about it, the better you will feel about yourself. and the more options you will have. I have worked my way up to pooping around a handfull of people, and a handfull of places.. one day I will be able to go at the stadium or at the bar.....but I am able to go in places or situations that I thought I could never gone before. and it all started by telling the people around me with no shame or guilt. Keep the good work, and dont feel discouraged by the negative energy of others.
