  1. Coping With Social Anxiety
    I've come to the conclusion that i've developed sa from a very early age. According to my mother everything always seemed to fright me and was always a scaredy cat. The fact that my parents were very overprotective (especially my mom) always babied and spoiled me i think was another reason. They...
  2. Voting Booth
    Did anyone experienced NO sort of bullying whatsoever? Causation between anxiety and people, though it varies from individual to individual I doubt bullying has not been suffered by someone with SA. Check the poll, please vote, thanks.
  3. General Discussion
    Doesn't the idea of your parents being old scare the **** out of you? I can't even stand my father but it's really shocking to think that he'll be 60 in just over a year. The thought of my mother, who I'm also not close with, being in her 60s makes me want to cry. I'm terrified that one day...
  4. Coping With Social Anxiety
    So the psychiatrist at my school told me to take 0.25 mg of Xanax for my anxiety problems and I just got the prescription. I haven't told my mom about the medicine. I am in fear if I do tell her, she would make a big deal out of it and think I am crazy or something. Because Xanax has a bad rep...
  5. Coping With Social Anxiety
    Yes or No question and of course, if you want share more go ahead. Btw, does anxiety run in your family too? How are we suppose to break the chain? I would defenitly like my kids to be extraverted or just a bit more outgoing than me:) Really curious about how you guys feel about that. Thx for...
  6. Coping With Social Anxiety
    I have always been close to my parents. I guess because of my time spent at my house I have formed very close bonds with my family. My parents have always treated me like an adult. I guess that's why I always feel different around people my own age. I feel more mature, yet I have never had a...
  7. Coping With Social Anxiety
    So, I'm out of college and in my new job. I'm doing ok .. except for certain tasks where I become visibly shaky. As much as I try to deny it ... take my mind off it .. it still happens often. Finally I decided to call my dad and tell him what's up;, best I let my dad know my problems than to...
  8. Coping With Social Anxiety
    I haven't told my family about my SA, I don't think i'll ever do it i just don't trust them. A couple of years ago i was diagnosed with PDD-NOS a type of autism, but i really believe that I've been misdiagnosed, cause the symptoms don't really fit who i am, and sometimes they'll mock me about a...
  9. Coping With Social Anxiety
    I grew up in a neighbourhood full of old people. There were no kids my age to play with, and I wasn't allowed to go out much. Logically, most of my childhood was spent with lego. Now I am 18. i thoroughly enjoy painting, drawing and building stuff ( not from lego of course:) I am past that) ...
  10. Coping With Social Anxiety
    I'm just curious. Though I find this website of great use, and comforting, I would rather NO ONE in my local vicinity know of my little problem. Everytime i am done with this site, i delete it from my internet history. Paranoid, maybe... but i doubt my parents would take me seriously if i...
