My name is Tobias.
Firstly, I never in a million years pictured I’d be here sharing a book I wrote about how I overcame social anxiety because I never thought I’d ever get over it myself.
I was professionally diagnosed with social anxiety disorder, generalised anxiety disorder, OCD and depression. For years I was on strong antidepressants (250 mg Zoloft) and during the worst of it, medical disability benefits due to my fear of job interviews. I won’t go any more into my story here (you can read about it in the book)
I believed I had a genetic fault in my brain and I was “born that way.” I had totally given up on myself and resigned to my fate things would always be like that for me. I didn’t win the genetic lottery, better luck next lifetime.
Through a lot of effort on his part, I met a man who managed to convince me I could overcome social anxiety because he did it himself. I got the most help on my journey from people who had been through social anxiety themselves. Now I’m paying it forward by sharing what worked for me.
I’m here to share my story of recovery with you, to show you it is possible to overcome these conditions. It’s not easy and there’s no magic pill, but it is possible. I am living proof of that.
This book is not something I threw together last weekend. It has taken me almost a year to write and it contains a lifetime of pain and lessons. I have truly put my heart and soul into this book.

This book is for you if you believe you were “born with social anxiety” or you’re “beyond help” and there’s nothing you can do to change this condition.
It’s for you if everyone has always told you you’re worthless and inferior and now you believe that about yourself.
It’s for you if you always feel nervous and uncomfortable around people and you can’t seem to figure out why that’s happening to you or how to stop it.
It’s for you if you always doubt yourself, call yourself hurtful names and constantly beat yourself up about having social anxiety.
All these things I was going through.
Feel free to ask me anything related to the book, my experiences with social anxiety or anything else really.
I really hope my book helps you. I’m contactable and I will reply to everyone who reaches out to me.
