Current Mood:  taking a break, and probably weird...

Current Music:  (none)


NOTE:  2021 03 25  10H34 EST  Mask -



- living with social phobias and agoraphobia ...


The crazy thing is

I actually derive a

Sense of security

About going out

With a mask to

Cover my face.

It brings my fears

Down quite a few

Notable notches.

It's kind of nice

To be rid of that

Nervous energy

Coursing through

Me about being out.


I know, it's probably

Not the best response

In the long-run for me,

But in the meantime,

It's unexpectedly working

Out nicely for my nerves,

And I'm going with it.

It's good to know that a mask helps in another way which I hadn't thought about, I'm sure you're not alone.

I'm happy for you. I'd never considered the situation from that angle: relief at not being seen. Mostly, I miss being able to see others.

I don't think your experience is atypical. I've talked with several people who like the anonymity of mask-wearing. I kind of like it, too. No fake smiles necessary.
