Social Anxiety Without Panic Attacks?
I am not totally sure if I have social anxiety as a disorder. I certainly feel anxious around almost all social situations, although I have never had a panic attack. I think this has to do with a) dealing with an immense amount of anxiety about my grades last year (lots of competition at my old school) and b) the source of my anxiety. Although I never directly criticize myself, I always tell myself that I will be cooler/more confident/better in the future if i work out every day and study as hard as I can. I think this has subconsciously made me think that I am somehow in-superior now, compared to how I will be in the future (i hope that makes sense). Does this still mean I have social anxiety? I also don't feel depressed all the time. Only maybe 30 min a day do I get depressed, and thats only because of hopelessness about my anxiety.
