    I have to work harder to maintain friendships . It’s so easy to not reach out. And so hard to be around people. Stiff Person Syndrome causes painful muscle contractions and neuropathy when I experience any positive or negative emotion. The lack of GABA causes the body to not be able to clamp down on muscle tension. Bizarre

    Digital communication can make these issues easier to some extent. For me at least i.e email, text, cell phone,Skype.
