Hello


Hello!

I just joined the forum!

I'm 26, from Singapore doing my degree in Electrical Engineering in a local university and graduating soon. Many years ago when i was in ages 14-18, i suffered from social anxiety and i did not approach anyone or make friends or defend myself from sarcastic/domineering people. I am better now after receiving treatment when i was 18. I hope to contribute something valuable to the forum and to learn from those in a similar situation regarding social anxiety.

Regards,

N7 Engineer

Hey N7engineer, 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.

Congrats on the EE degree. I received my MSEE in 1993. I wish I had kept current with my skills and in technology in general. I was looking into seeking therapy before this virus thing hit, so that's on hold. What kind of therapy did you undergo? Did it involve medication? I haven't worked in years, and think perhaps I'd feel better about myself if I could find a job...but it seems unlikely.
