Everything. Public, facing the public. I remember my first outing was to a movie theater, and I was terrified of being seen out in public like this. Luckily, I happened to be the only one on that outing somehow mysteriously, so it was just the therapist, me, and my mom. And it was in the middle of the afternoon, and we saw a movie that apparently no one else wanted to see. So, that helped break me in a little bit, facing the public was really difficult. But other than that, I was afraid of everything. I was afraid to stretch out my arm in front of me. I mean I couldn’t do this without feeling like I was going to topple over. Everything was scary.
