Thanks for posting your progress Gary. Glad that things went well and that you were able to chose to challenge yourself and learn more about yourself, and in the process help others (like me) by posting your experience. I know it took a lot to make that choice, but I think it was for the best. I know what you mean about re-evaluating an experience after you've had it. That's a part of Social Anxiety. I know it all too well. Unfortunately, I'm big on catastrophizing too. Hopefully, with enough awareness and self-acceptance, progress can be made on these things. It sounds like you have made some by doing this.

thank you and thanks for the link,

Caz
