Hi, I have been married for a year and a half now and we are currently staying in a cottage on my inlaw's property. I suffer from social anxiety. I struggled with this arrangement in the first few months and my doctor suggested we get our own place asap. Because I didn't want to pressure my husband financially, i thought I would try and push through. Due to my anxiety i just cannot relax in this setting and having them just a stone throw away from us I find myself constantly aware of them and also not wanting to think anything badly of me. So I try hard. This puts so much pressure on me. About 2 weeks ago I had a bit of a breakdown. I am at a point now where I don't want to face my inlaws let alone my father in law ( he can be quite intimidating ) Although they have been good to me all along, I just don't have the energy. I have become very withdrawn now andoing am Even at a point where I don't want to make any new relationships in my life especially from his side of the family. I realise that this is selfish but I just can't. I am back on my meds for two weeks and am waiting for them to start working Has anyone else experienced something similar? Just wish I was normal. .
