My name is Charlotte and I have been a very shy person all of my life. It has affected me as far as having friends sesne I was a child. I have never been able to outgrow it as others have been able to. Also, as others have, I haven't been able to loosen up and be friends with people even after I have known them for a while. Some of my sisters-in-law even have taken me years to get confortable at talking with, but even then I am not very comfortable when talking one on one alone with them. I am still unable to talk with even brothers-in-law period and feel like they are strangers to me. Have never gotten close to any of them very well.

Also, I have had depression most of my life. I grew up with an unloving mom who was very abusive to me and my younger sibblings. I go in and out of deppression. I have studied all of my life for ways to keep myself from going into a depressed state. I love to do yoga stretching and breathing, I like taichi, and walking always calms me out of being in a depressed mood.

Hey everybody! Thanks for the welcome!

Yeah, well I'm not too good at Journaling or Blogging really, I tried a few times though. So don't worry about it... :)
