I totally agree with this! In retrospect the most common drugs are the most debilitating, porn; internet; tobacco; alcohol; video games; high-processed food. I'm curious to know , is this the first reboot where you have felt this way? I'd love to see how different generations have wrestled with this addiction. With regards to social anxiety I find just meeting with people helps. There was a website meetup.com where you can see a variety of groups to do with virtually every topic one can think, from cinema lovers to politics, you can choose a group that suits your interests and meet them in person. Depression I don't see as different from social anxiety, they have an almost symbiotic relationship. If you are socially anxious that's no problem, remember listening is just as social as talking, it's the aspect of communication that is too trivialised. You get better the more you do it, just like you did with IT, you gradually understood how computers communicate through frequent contact with them. I used to see my meetings as detective work. I feel this week I need to crack on with sorting my messy room out. How are your surroundings looking? It's understated but our environment usually is a reference to where we're at. Try as much as you can to look after that, I've noticed when I do that alone my mind declutters. I hope this reboot hasn't been unkind to your sleep cycle but I've seen people with depression, and I wish you a safe delivery from it.
