Requesting Advice| My Situation and How Should I Change It?


This might sound strange, but I'm at the point of my social anxiety to where I think that inanimate objects judge me and mentally attack me for everything I do; for past mistakes and for decisions I should have made but didn't, as well as pointing out my own physical flaws. I've been trying to work on that last one, but I just don't feel like I have the determination. So I have to ask, does anyone have any methods I could try for helping ease my social anxiety without medication? I'd ask for medication but my doctor doesn't want me to rely on pills for the rest of my life (I'm already on anti-depressants as it is.) Besides, I shouldn't need to take medication to overcome something like this. It seems like such a simple task, yet daunting at the same time, probably because I don't know what I'm doing.

Exposure cleared up a good chunk of my anxiety. Probably the best path to head down if meds aren't something you're all that keen on tbh.

By exposure, I assume you mean going out there, talking to people, and trying to make friends? Or at the very least a decent conversation. Next time I'm in town, I'll try it.
