I don't know. Anyway I usually feel better when I'm at work.

Personally, I think I am a natural introvert. For myself, the social element (meaning how others see me) is an issue sometimes. When I am dealing with more stress and depression, it is much harder for me to be around other people, or interact. I have a habit of trying to automatically make myself 'acceptable' or 'presentable' when I know I need to be with others.

Since I no longer work (on disability), I have less stress and anxiety about being forced to interact with other people unless I want to, or at least have enough time to be able to prep myself - maybe boost myself - so that I can deal with people.

Not really sure if having less contact with people is really good for me, but I like the ability to have more time to prepare.
