When I was a kid, I was at the dentist and they had these stuffed animals that had like,, dentures?? And you could brush them, so they gave me one. So I brushed the teeth, but I didn’t want to stop until the doctor came back because I felt like it would be rude to put it down or something. So, basically, I brushed a stuffed animals fake teeth with a giant toothbrush for like five minutes straight until he came back.

In college, I decided to start going to the gym to make myself feel better. I got dressed in work-out clothes, drove to the rec center, and then sat in my car for 30 minutes trying to bring myself to go inside while simultaneously imagining how everyone would stare at me, I might have to ask for help on how to use a machine, I wouldn’t know what I was doing, etc. I ended up driving back home.
I did this whole process more than once.
I learned how to replace a garbage disposal because I didn’t want to bother my landlords.
I once had snot drip out if my nose in the middle of class in middle school. I was too anxious to get a tissue because I was still relatively new to that school (we had moved). So I sat with my hand over my mouth and just had snot accumulate. I waited till class was over and everyone left to get a tissue.
