I rode in an elevator

it was just me, but I rode all the way to level 0 from level 1

sounds a bit stupid now I'm typing it but for me it's good

I was a bit scared of the doors closing on me but they didn't

@emily1890 way to go. You did something you were anxious about and the things you feared would happen didn't.

I have heard that is how they sometimes work with people experiencing PTSD like in this article that talks about facing our fears How to Face Your Fears Head-On

I take it you have a phobia about elevators. Pushing past the fear is no small thing. Good for you! Small victories add up and deserve to be celebrated. We find we are capable of more than we thought we could do. It's a nice discovery.

Yay! Good for you

As someone who's struggled with severe anxiety in the past, it doesn't sound stupid in any way. It sounds like a brave and important step
