Welcome, so has your SA improved or gotten worse in 30 years? Have you learned how to deal with it better?

re: 30 Years of Social Anxiety and Panic Disorder...


Thanks for the "Welcome", Mindful and Dave. I most positively qualify in years as an 'antique' panic/social anxiety disorder oldie. The jury is still out on the 'quality' of the antique...

I've battled with the monster for 31 years. 16 of those I was able to teach elementary school and function relatively 'ok', with 'on and off' bouts of the monster rearing its ugly head. For years and years, I read everything I could get my hands on about the disorder. I recognized my triggers and figured out ways to cope in difficult situations. There have been really good times and lots of not so good times in the 31 years, too.

The last 5 have been a crappy battle...and since it has not been looking as if it was going to improve using my old 'bag of tricks', I decided to go online and see if I could find a nice group of folks who understand that might offer some fresh new tricks and coping mechanisms to add to my dusty old bag!

During the most difficult times, I find that others who personally understand and have battled the monster, are the best support. We can help each other locate that 'open window', as well as remind each other to watch out for the window slamming down on our fingers just as we are about to make our escape...

I hope that I can, both, help and be helped!
