Non-sense. We SAers are not narcissists. We care deeply about people, their feelings, ourselves and others, we are simply plagued by a crippling disorder that disables us from speaking as freely as we would like to when we are in public or around people. To label ALL OF US as narcissists and to REFUSE to acknowledge the OBVIOUS fact that social anxiety is a crippling mental disorder with a pathophysiological origin of low dopamine between receptor synapses in the brain IS FOOLISHNESS. And I say that with all due respect to the OP and I mean no harm or insult my friends. I love and care for all of you deeply who have suffered with social anxiety disorder your whole lives just like I have. We MUST give ourselves MORE credit for BEING THE BRAVE AND STRONG people that we ARE, FIGHTING EVERY DAY, THROUGH AN UNIMAGINABLE HELL, and REFUSING TO GIVE UP. WE WILL DEFEAT THIS SOCIAL ANXIETY DISORDER. Whether it is through medication, cognitive behavioral therapy or neurosurgery, WE SHALL OVERCOME. AMEN. GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS ON THIS FORUM. HIT ME UP IF YOU EVER NEED ANYTHING. YOU WILL NEVER WALK ALONE.
