I have suffered from social anxiety most of my life and selective mutism. I do not have many friends one visits me a couple of times each week. This friend is good helps me with shopping and other things. I do however realise his time is limited also l get bored with no other company. Ideally l could do with someone to come with me to social events or outings but there is no one. I do know other people but there are busy with work family and so on. I don't have money to travel to places or the conifedence. I know that the mental health services are over stretched I don' think it' there job to supply social support but how do l get better alone?
