The two people I met at the transgender group a few weeks ago took me to the grocery store. I also got to hang out with them for a bit. Now I have enough food to last until Wednesday and I was able to withdraw money from my UK bank account.
I was very anxious at the grocery store though. There were a lot of people and their children. I tried very hard not to make eye contact with anyone. I wish I’d have brought my headphones to drown out the noise. I managed to get most of what I needed, including foundation makeup, which I feel I need, because I was almost out of it.
It’s always good when I get to socialize, even if it’s just for a couple of hours. Now I’m tired and can appreciate my solitude, rather than hate it. Being a socially awkward ambivert is very challenging , as I always need a balance to keep both my extroverted and introverted sides happy. Too much of either is often very bad.
Anyway, I’m going to continue to search for local friends and a potential guy to date on Tinder and OK Cupid. I know I have no chance, but it helps make me feel a tiny bit human.
