  1. Introductions and Welcomes
    Im pretty sure this is my second time posting in this thread. Oh but I'm sure I'm the ONLY person to have ever disappeared from here then showed up again years later! ;) Welp..for the second time I'm here and I still have a mild-moderate anxiety about new people. Its more of an avoidence issue...
  2. Introductions and Welcomes
    Wow, it seems so obvious no that I see all the symptoms in B&W, but my reluctance to accept it all these years has rendered me powerless in a sense, living in denial, until NOW!

  7. Coping With Social Anxiety
    After everyone but me went ahead and joined the thingie group (sorry, I just like to be different :b) I thought I'd create a group to help those following Dr. Richards' audio program. I finished with it over a year ago but I think it's time to review a lot of the concepts, and I understand that...

  8. Therapy
    First off what is NLP? I generally understand what CBT is, but do you reverse the negative thoughts by distracting yourself completely, thinking of a different positive outcome, or thinking of the complete opposite of the negative thought? I think I have some minor symptoms of SA (the anxiety is...
