Arranged to teach my housemate some chords this evening out of social awkwardness
Now he’s knocking and I’m too anxious to answer the door. Today’s lesson is you don’t have to force yourself to leave an anxiety haven, even to explain your self-care. He knocks very quietly and politely, and I have loud music on. It’s easily explained away.
It may be disappointing for him, but I’ve been dissociated all day because of my sheer terror of doing it.
