Moreover, my activity on That Other Social Network has increased, giving the illusion of social interaction without actually talking to people in meatspace, so I've fallen into a comfortable little self-rewarding pattern of social avoidance. This isn't depression (probably) as much as voluntary hermitude. Loneliness is bad, but fear of rejection and judgement is worse.
The RTH had me make an appointment with the Family Health Services (basically the Army health/adjustment/psych department) to work through my numerous Issues and maybe get some drugs and therapy so I can apply for work without hyperventilating out of fear of talking to non-RTH human beings.
Never before has my Avoidant Personality Disorder come so sharply into play in my life. :(
