I'm getting a lot closer to completely overcoming it. Still needs a little work though.

This is a great story! And it shows that SA can become less debilitating if you take a strategic, approach with whatever therapy or self-help works for you. You CAN get your life back.

Inspiring story indeed!

Perhaps you can tell us a little more about what helped you changed? What beliefs did you use to have that you don't have anymore? What's the (your) "sercret" to overcoming SA? Was there anything in particular that was especially helpful?

I want to feel good too! Thanks

Thank you so much for sharing this. I've got goals that involve speaking at toastmasters and it feels so nice to read what you've done.

What has the subject matter involved when you've spoken at toastmasters? Have you introduced yourself as someone with social anxiety and someone that is challenging it or did you leave that out?

I wish you all the best and thanks again for sharing this.
