That first year was one of the most difficult of my life. Some days I was worried to leave my room in fear of my housemates judging me for literally everything and not making any effort to befriend them. Did they think I didn't like them? Or did they just think I was being rude? Either way, I was making things difficult for myself.
It took the best part of a year to start gaining any kind of confidence as I had never had this before, it was all new to me and gradually my social anxiety and depression became so much easier to cope with. My GP started me on a combination of different therapy’s.
