Hi there. I've been dealing with anxiety for as long as I can remember. I have a very interesting kind of OCD/anxiety. I have severe FOMO (fear of missing out). I am obesessed with the idea of trying to have fun and mark things off my bucket list. If I miss out on something, I can obesess about it for days. It's been a frustrating journey, because I've always had trouble finding and keeping friends. Imagine having this appetite for life and fun and laughter and adventure but you can't find the company to do it with. My boyfriend always says I need to get out there and try harder, but I try so hard! I always initiate things. I can never get my "friends" to come over to my parties or events. My boyfriend has always been super popular and it's frustrating to hear all of his past adventures with his friends. I do as much as I can alone but at some point you just need company to laugh with.

Have you considered therapy? Because it seems like it is less about reality and more about your perceived reality.
