Hello, never done this before, but I'd like to be in the company of others experiencing the same thing. I've felt this stuff for as long as I can remember. I started taking some meds about 2 years ago. Nothing helped me. Stopped in May and am now starting again. I've tried all kinds of meds and this is a new one for me now, 2nd day. I'm looking on suggestions on reading material, treatment and just what can I do to feel better. I have no friends. In the process of loosing my girlfriend of a couple years. I feel like it can't get any worse. Besides the SA, now I'm feeling a great deal of depression, like falling deeper each day. Arghh. Anyway, nice to meet you all.
You've come to the right place, considering I think we've all been there. This is one place I come for hope because I got to believe that SA doesn't define me in a way that leads me to the brink of insanity. Even on good days, where SA isn't there I still come here. So this is a good place to be at, there is a lot of hope here! Welcome!!!
Hi jgjh151! Welcome to S.A.S. There are several forums here that may be of help, a Coping with Social Anxiety forum, a Secondary Disorders forum for things like depression, and a Medication forum... Dave
