how long have you struggled with social anxiety? are you taking anything at the moment? because me and others have tried it all, nothing has worked, and have been spending years and decades living in our houses scared of the real world because of this illness ....I really hope this new drug and many others that you post will help many...but we will wait and see...after a while you realize that the medical field and companies first priority is money..
..you are right that the negative attitude does not help, but many people like me have spent all their life dealing with this, robbed of their life, stuck at home and not able to function in society, so it's very hard to be optimistic and hopeful. Every time a new drug comes out my doctors recommend it, i get hopeful, and every time it fails..its very hard to be optimistic..but i really hope that the drugs you post will help people..
You are giving up to easily...
I have to deal with this problem daily, yet I still do and I am still fighting.
I go out, in university I have to go to these big *** lecture, do presentations but I still do it.
Dont blame the illness that it is "robbing your life", you are robbing yourself out of a life because you believe in these so called negative thinking
I do understand how scary is it, but sometimes all it take is courage. No drugs is needed.
The only thing I fear is that no one will remember me, give or take in 1000 years we will all die and no one will remember us.
By the way, I do have a mix of Generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder and bipolar.
If you want to minimize the impact of social anxiety, then first thing you need to do is change your attitude.
Also, think about this way, you were a sperm, there are over 20 million sperms in ejaculation, so YOU out of 20 million got to fertilize in the egg. Chances are 5.0x10^-8 to do so. You have to be extremely grateful to live
