Laura, I have trouble getting in touch with people, too. I can do it if I want to make a lunch date or something, but I a don’t like to call just to say ‘hello, how are you’ — I have a lot of baggage — I grew-up feeling like I always said the wrong thing and that no body wanted to be BOTHERED with me. So, if I call somebody I must be bothering them and saying something stupid.

I know that this is not true, but the feeling remains. I have taken to just making myself pick up the phone and call somebody at least once a week. It is not enough, but at least months and months don’t go by without contacting someone. It seems to get easier over time, but I still have the feeling that I am keeping someone from doing something more important.
