Feeling That I'm Alone

Hello All,

I recently started noticing that I developed Social Anxiety while I was in college (graduated 201. I've been on/off meds, recently got back onto Pristiq 75mg. I wanted to try something else while I wait the long time before I start to notice the effect of the meds, so I'm joining this community in hopes that knowing I'm not alone with my condition will help with my recovery process.

I would love to talk about how everyone's disorder manifests itself with them. I know I have issues communicating with my friends, even some of my closest. Most conversations I have with them die out because my mind run blank, I don't know what to say. Then, I know I should be saying something back, can't think of anything, resulting in my feelings of anxiety and worthlessness.

Please drop a comment and lets start a discussion!

Hi Jesse! You're definitely not alone. That sounds like it could be useful knowing when you started getting social anxiety. Why do you think it might not have been as bad as a child? I feel like I've had it my whole life. Except maybe when I was like 3

I've never tried meds because I'm paranoid they could effect my health for the worse. Did you find they help?

I tend to have the worse time with social anxiety around people from the second time I meet them on. The first time I meet someone I feel like it's the same conversation (where are you from, etc) but then after that first conversation it's crickets. Over my life I've noticed that the people who I am friends with are the kind of people who do ALL of the talking basically for the both of us.

Hey Jesse, welcome to SAS.

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.
