Hi everyone. I've been lurking for the better part of a year and I wanted to start participating in the forum. I'm not actually diagnosed but some sort of social phobia has been impeding my life. An example of one of my triggers is that I have a really hard time trying to put my thoughts into words causing regular everyday conversations with acquaintances/strangers to be absolute hell and causes me anxiety. I mean even writing this message took me two days to write cause i couldn't find the right words and kept procrastinating. I've wanted to start posting a lot earlier but I've been too afraid. I hope i can fix some of my social problems by talking to people here.
