Social Anxiety Background
I have had trouble with Social Anxiety since my high school days (I graduated in 1970. If I went to parties with my girlfriends I would drink excessively to be less shy and more "fun". I continue to do that to some degree even now.
Psychotherapy- helps for a while, but I always regress
I have been on Prozac for at least 20 years. It has helped me a lot with depression, but I still have a terrible time with social gatherings. (I avoid them) I'm looking for other avenues of help, but I will continue to take Prozac. Otherwise, my depression becomes overwhelming.
