hi I'd want to share one thing - just to see if I am the only one with such a problem or not. Well, it's not really a problem. In short everytime I got free evening with internet connection I start to read some kind of self-help books. Like how to overcome shyness, socialphobia, depression. I am not claiming that I have any of those - I stay away from any medical 'help' as they call it. And every time they make me really anxious, feeling worthless etc. I want to smash the computer which I never do - I just cut myself or beat myself or sth like that. Idk why it is this way - but well I guess it's my fault, as I guess I read something different then it's written. For instance: It's is good to learn how to love yourself + all the tips = If I am not 'loving myself' means I am worse then others, unnormal and so stupid that I haven't been doning any of those tips. Do not escape from the situation that makes you anxious + blah blah blah = you are sick and unnormal to do so and you must face the situations no matter how miserably and anxious they make me feel - anyway how they expect anyone having problems with anxiety to socialize - I bet they have no idea what they are writting about Sport is a great cure for depression = if you are depressed it's your fault, you got to do some sport unless you are not too dumb or handicapped; all the 'normal' people do so and as long as you won't start acting as stated then it's obvioulsy because you are sick, unnormal etc. and so on Is it that I only have such a problems reading any self-help books or anyone have such a thing too?
