It took me awhile to type this out because I seem to have forgotten how to properly introduce myself. My name is Victoria and I'm 17 years old. Even though I was only properly diagnosed last month, I have been struggling with social anxiety symptoms since I was in elementary school. It seems like my anxiety is progressively getting worse. I decided to join this site in hopes that I may be able to seek guidance from those who understand what I'm going through. I also hope to maybe make a few friends, although I'm quite terrible at doing so.

Welcome. Hope you'll gain something out of this site.

Welcome! Have you tried seeing a therapist? Also, if you practice socializing, it can help your anxiety to improve a lot over time. Its hard but it really makes a big difference. Best of luck in overcoming social anxiety!
