Anxiety, avoidance before first date. Bipolar, PTSD, social anxiety.

My name is Xanthe Wyse. Diagnosed bipolar disorder (type 1), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social anxiety disorder.

Just recording some thoughts before going on a first date. I rarely go on dates as I don’t really feel safe to. Emotionally, physically etc.

Fidgety and scattered managing my anxiety. Trying not to have any expectations. Open to the possibility of love, yet guarded.

Mentioned song To the Moon and Back (Savage Garden).

Recorded post-date video which will upload too including about safety.
