That was the video I stumbled across one day this year that made me realise that I actually had a disorder and wasn't just naturally weird.

Quiet people have the loudest minds


I just gotta get out of this prison cell
Some day I'm gonna be free

I agree, I had the same thing happen to me. They took my money, I returned the product unopened, told me I could not return product but have kept my money. THEY ARE CHARLATANS AND THIEVES>

I don't feel it possible to grasp the world as they do, to say without outright certainty this is the way I go with the outsider inside me. Something tells me the video is everything I would say if I were an actor playing the part of a socially anxious person but untrue somewhere. Impersonal, disassociated. I don't think living yourself is something turned on at a prompt, it's impossible yet, they have that assurance they do the prompt honor. I'd be careful watching this, it misses something and it seems almost too useful, too understanding, too empathetic.
Yeah I thought it sort of seemed that way too. I assume it's because its aimed at non-socially anxious people. Plus the interviewees are probably guided as to what they say and how they say it.

Still, it was pretty interesting. Thanks for posting.

I get very depressed in school because I am not able to deal with new social situations and I feel like I can just hear people criticizing me though they're not, and so on. It's a terrible feeling, but what is also terrible was that I had to lie to everyone to hide the fact that I have SA.

Anyways, wow.. SAS forum is awesome
perfect description of my life/what i've been feeling

I recently read a book that helped me a lot with my depression. I think the main point of it was really helpful. That the sufferer should first and foremost seek help and then take an active approach to make sure that they are healing along with finding a partner to help them on their journey. Also, it kind of opened my eyes to the different foods that can really worsen people's depression because of the different chemicals in the foods and how they can affect you. I know it doesn't seem like it but what I've discovered is that the little things all add up and can have a big impact on the way you feel. Feel better! The name of the book was 'you can cure your depression' by the way.

Great video, I found it very interesting and it was so comforting to hear things that I thought were just me.

When I was five I stopped speaking at school. My teacher said I was being very naughty and would pull me to the front of the classroom and make everyone look at me. The other children would laugh. I used to keep my hair long and hide behind it as a young child, I would rock myself when everyone stared at me and the teacher was yelling asking if I was stupid. That was way back in 1997 but it feels just like yesterday and the emotions are so strong sometimes.

Unfortunately, most humans are brainwashed into thinking that other humans feeling like them showed in a "horror story " type way makes their story so true and the audience identifies, now hey are feeling better about themselves that somebody else is suffering, and they get a temporary relief from theirs because they feel that they are not alone, and now they have concrete proof to show to their friends and family to prove that it is a condition that they have. Whereas this is just another label people willingly take upon themselves so that they can be categorized into a certain group and just accept what it is told to them and how they can be " corrected" whereas there is NOTHING WRONG about them to be begin with. They are just different, and they don' t accept that, they are different, and nobody accepts them as they are because of that. They don't have to fit in and defend, there is nothing to defend. I find different beautiful.

Rofl yea, I thought I was just a weird person my entire life, with some panic attacks here and there, but I never could figure out exactly what was wrong with me, I know now its a disorder, wow a relief, holy crap. And im guessing that my parents knew this, but never wanted to tell me.

Having severe social fobia for almost 10 years now, I feel so sorry for the little girl. Such a young age and already experiencing all these crazy feelings Makes me sad.

I've seen this video a few times. I don't necessarily hate it, but I felt like it functions to make non-SA sufferers feel sorry for us even more. I thought it was screaming "self-pity" and "self-indulgence," however, I can't deny it can be educational to these non-SA sufferers as well. But for someone who's gotten past the self-indulgent phase, it disappointed me.
