I have a small aversion to talking on the phone.  I can’t remember a time when making phone calls didn’t give me pause.  It’s an odd anxiety, and I have no idea where it came from or why it exists.  The good news is that it doesn’t stop me from doing the things I need to do.  It doesn’t affect me at work.  The bad news is that it is the root of some of my rampant procrastination that manifests in my day to day personal life.

I tackled a few calls this morning.  I felt myself starting to cry when I had trouble making one of my appointments.  Then I felt silly for a little while because of it, before moving on and finishing the things on my list.  I feel okay about the things I got done.

Humans are funny creatures.

  1. I have serious anxiety with the idea of talking on the phone in front of people… I also feel anxious about _calling_ people, but I’m more anxious if there are people around. And yes, it certainly results in increased procrastination. I’m so happy to hear someone else feels this. 🙂

  2. I have this too. Sometimes it even extends to sending emails! =\ I get done the things I really need to, but, for example, I really need a hair cut again and I’ve been putting off making that call.

  3. I love poetry slams! That’s a great one, thanks for posting. My anxiety is getting worse with age and seems to involve groups of people when I’d rather be alone.
