Hi, new here

I'm 21 years old and currently living in NYC. I've been shy and anxious around people since I can remember, never really knowing why, and just few years ago I did some research and I realized that I have social anxiety. While I think it has improved over the last year or so I'm still far from living a normal life. Anyway, after visiting this site for a few months I decide to register, originally I was actually nervous about registering and posting, but this seems like a good place full of great people so I decide to give it a shoot. Hopefully we can help each other beat this thing.

Hey - what took you so long? You know we know what it's like. .
I am glad you joined - it's really starting to get active.
Just post as you feel ready to. For some, it takes a while (even for me), but eventually it gets easier.

welcome, I'm new too. I think this site can be very helpful. Don't give up, things can change. I used to be a lot worse. Sometimes I find it helps to pretend you don't care and just act like you are confident... you will start to believe it. I used to get really anxious around strangers but now I even start conversation or make a joke.

just one more song to slay this earth
and i can't explain myself just what it's worth
it was all i had, but not all i'd need
and i can't escape the fact that i still bleed
