  1. Coping With Social Anxiety
    Hi everyone! Just curious, what do you currently do for a living? What are some jobs you've had that you loved versus couldn't stand? Just in general, what jobs seem to suit those with social anxiety?
  2. United States Groups
    Hi All, How is everyone? I am new to this forum. I came across this on google as I was researching about anxiety and careers. I am wondering if anyone else has similar struggles as I have when it comes to working and anxiety. I am still trying to figure out what it is that I want to do career...
  3. Introductions and Welcomes
    Hi all - For a while I have been trying to decide whether I have social anxiety or merely social reluctance. It affects me but I wouldn't say I particularly need or want any help with it - but perhaps I'm deluding myself there! I wrote an article trying to work it out and also discussed the...
  4. Psychotherapy
    Hi everyone, I was hoping to get some advice. Have you ever felt like your therapist misjudged you, or weren't really trying to understand you? Like they were too set on an idea or conclusion? Today my therapist asked me to consider whether I might have an autism spectrum disorder instead of...
  5. Coping With Social Anxiety
    Hi everyone Im a 2nd year uni student and I’ve just applied for a job at an agency. They do all sorts of work like cleaning and bar work. Obviously I’m feeling very anxious about it and was wondering if anyone with anxiety had done bar work and how did you cope with stressful situations? Or...
  6. Introductions and Welcomes
    so in 2 days I'm meeting my university classmates for the first time, but I'm so scared of socializing. I'm having panick attacks days leading to it. My heart can't relax. The problem is that I don't have anyone close to be with so I'm scared I'll be alone in class. I'm pretty sure everyone...
  7. Coping With Social Anxiety
    Right so I know the title is really confusing but i’ll try explain it! Basically when something happens and I get offended or upset by it, my instant reaction is to forgive - not because I’m a forgiver but more because I don’t want to the other person to be mad at me for being mad at them and I...
  8. Introductions and Welcomes
    3:44 am here and had this lingering question cross my wicked mind. I absolutely hate not having the balls to speak up for myself and it always ends up in ppl taking advantage of me. hhhhhh I fu- king hate having SA I think I'm just a big puzsy sometimes, I feel like I shouldn't even be here to...
  9. Coping With Social Anxiety
    Phew, I’m back on this board after a three year hiatus.. and not much has changed honestly. I’ve upgraded from a socially anxious teenager in high school to a socially anxious adult in pharmacy school. Yay. I kid, some things have improved. However, I’m still very much an over thinker. Just...
  10. Family and Friends
    Okay, I’ll start this off by saying, I know I should be happy for my brother and show my support by going to his wedding because I’m his sister, and I feel terribly selfish and pathetic for thinking of my own discomfort first, but the more I think about being in that type of situation the more I...
  11. Therapy
    Hi, this is my first time writing here and I'd like some help. I've had social anxiety (self-diagnosed) basically my whole life (for 15 years). Even though I'm self-diagnosed I'm 100% sure I got it right (I had 15 years to think about it after all). My therapist can't diagnose me, but mentions...
  12. Introductions and Welcomes
    I feel so alone and embarrassed by my social anxiety. Just typing this is hard :( I really have no one I can open up to about this because I’m so busy pretending to be someone I’m not. it would be nice to make friends with someone who really understands me..someone I don’t have to pretend...
  13. Therapy
    Hey, I have been searching for a therapist for a little less than a year now. I have now been to three therapists (but one of them was only supposed to kinda diagnose me and help find me a longterm therapist). The first therapist and i mutually decidet at the second therapiesession that I...

  15. Coping With Social Anxiety
    So I probably always had a social anxiety, but I believe there might be more to it. Recently, I made a video... recording myself... yes. But I don't care much anymore, I am willing to show myself, I want to get some answers. I actually spend several years on another social anxiety forum, so...
  16. Introductions and Welcomes
    I started experiencing feelings of anxiety (due to hormones I think thanks to contraception) this caused me to feel sick a lot and have no appetite, a few times during this period I went out for meals and could not eat. Thankfully after sometime I got over this anxiety but am now finding I’m...
  17. Coping With Social Anxiety
    Hey everyone :) So, I have a problem that is probably relatively insignificant, but it seems so big in my head. Over the last few days, I've been texting with a boy via Snapchat. I'm a girl and I don't really have a lot of experience talking to the opposite sex and meeting new people in general...
