  1. Introductions and Welcomes
    I do not have a social anxiety disorder, (at least, not that I know of) but my uncle Brian is so bad I feel the need to at least understand why he always looks like a startled rabbit. First off, we never see him unless it's a big holiday, or we get lucky and he darts out of his room when we...
  2. School and Studying
    I'm struggling in my English course simply because it takes me so long to write anything down on paper. I don't know if anybody else has this problem, but I can't seem to jot things down like other people do, or even just BS when I've run out of time. I hand in incomplete papers, and even though...
  3. Introductions and Welcomes
    I am 20 years old. I've been living with Depression and Anxiety (especially social anxiety) practically my entire life. I also have Fibromyalgia, a physical disorder. Because off all this I'm not able to work at any type of normal job. Also, because I'm not able to work and my family is poor I'm...

  5. Coping With Social Anxiety

  6. Introductions and Welcomes
    So I very recently found out that I have SA but I knew something was going on for a very long time. From dropping out of school so much I'm now finishing the rest of GED program and then its off to USC. I feel confident I'll really stay in the program the WHOLE time this time around. Last year...
  7. Therapy
    Shortly after I was diagnosed with SAD a few months ago, I started seeing a cognitive behavioral therapist to help with my anxiety. I have had some success, although I feel like things have been going at a relatively slow pace which may be partly my fault due to not doing all of the homework...
  8. Coping With Social Anxiety
    Hello It's been a while since I've posted here. The past few months have been a sort of rollercoaster and I'm feeling like I've put myself in a really "stuck" position. Could use some perspective/advice. I am not really sure how to explain what is going on, which may be part of the problem...
  9. Therapy
    Anyone get any good advice in therapy? Anything inspiring, or enlightening that helped to change your thinking? Even something small or seemingly insignificant....
