Taking my first steps

Greetings everyone my name is Alex. I have suffered from social anxiety for as long as i can remember. My life seems to be like an eternal roller coaster ride. I work on myself find medication that is helpful and begin building up my social life. Once things seem like they are going well and I'm feeling good I begin making all kinds of bad discussions. I'm not used to not being tortured by anxiety that resulting elation leads me to be very short-sited. Everything comes crashing down and after awhile I repeat the whole process. After each cycle I seem to end up worse off than where I started. Now I'm more anxious than I've ever been and my life is in a terrible place. I've lost faith in my doctors and I'm not sure where to go from here.

Hey Alex, 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.
