Social Anxiety Background
Been SA since elementary school, really kicked into high gear when I was around 12-13 years old although I remember an episode when I was around 8 years old. Has continued to haunt me and cause me difficulties in my adult life. Really didn't socialize as a teenager, and to this day I don't have anything of an social life or love life for that matter. I'm diagnosed with the generalized type of Social Anxiety.
Paxil, Cipralex, Effexor, Klonopin, Xanax and I've done group CBT.
I was prescribed Zoloft after coming down from a whirlwind experience with Paxil. So I was depressed, more anxious than ever and in a new job. So basically the effects Zoloft had on me were that it made me quite apathetic and it had the slightly embarrassing side effect of making me gassy.
So it didn't work for me.
