Fully recovered? Not me. However I have no problems talking on the phone now, no problems meeting and talking with new people. no problems coming up to the opposite sex, no problems at job interviews. The only problems I have are public speaking and speaking with authority figures. I have gone through therapy and been on meds but did not stick with either of them for more than two weeks. It was mainly exposure that helped me out.

"One thing he (Trump) does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him."- Bill Clinton

Without question the worst president we’ve ever had- Harry Reid on trump.

No question, Trump is racist.- America's heroine Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

All roads with you lead to Putin.- Pelosi to trump on his treason

I think that it is possible but it takes a lot of work and you have to be willing to regularly push yourself out of your comfort zone, im not sure how possible a full recovery is though because people will tend to revert to their old behaviours during times of stress

I'm pretty much the same as you, but I have never had any therepy or medications. So I would say it is possible, you just have to work at it, it's not easy, i will tell you that. But if you make the effort you will be rewarded.
