No but there is depression on my dads side which could of been a result of a family trauma.

My mom is anxious with high blood pressure. But very social. My dad is more socially quiet and introspective. He's also a big drinker. There's mental health issues on both sides.

shyness is nice, and shyness can stop you from doing all the things in life you'd like to.

No. They are both quite emotionally sensitive, introverted people with somewhat of a tendency towards social anxiety but that's all.

Both act anxious in social settings though they at least had the skills to survive. You pretty much had to before our connected world. I don't feel like I picked up the bare minimum of social communication skill that they have.

My mother does. My dad is an attention *****. I'm a mix of both.

For forty-seven years I've put up with it now. I must stop Christmas from coming ... but how?

No one in my immediate or extended family has social anxiety, from what I'm aware of and observed.

Not social anxiety but on dad's side, this social and emotional coldness that didnt quite foster open communication and expression. My mama can speak to anyone however.

Neither of my parents did. But my father's father spent the last 7 or 8 years of his life in what they used to call a "nerve" hospital back in London. I have a feeling that might explain some of my problems.

I don't know my mum does or not, since she tends to find it easy to talk to people. She just never really spoke to me much when I was younger; she was quite cold and distant towards me.

To some degree, I guess they do but nothing like mine. My mom has strong SA tendencies but she also tends to go to random places and start awkward conversations with strangers. Which is very awkward when I am with her because most of the time you can tell the people are like "WTF lady? Leave me alone!"

She also starts weird conversations with people who come here to work on things. And again, you can tell the people are not wanting to be rude but also uncomfortable.

My dad certainly didn't, he was a very social. My mother tends to keep to herself though, she does get out but hates phone calls or dealing with people coming to the door. She get anxious about having to make decisions or the future.
