Hey all, new to this sub!

For me phone calls and going anywhere alone have always been really big triggers. Walking past teenagers or homeless people always makes my heart race. It sounds so dumb but I find both very unpredictable. This is probably due to being approached by them many times in the past. I wish strangers would just leave other strangers alone lol. It's been getting easier lately as I've been pushing myself to do both a few times a week. I use music/headset as a coping mechanism/safety blanket while I'm outside.

Can anyone else relate? What helps you get through when you put yourself in these uncomfortable situations.
