Hi Everyone,
I have always been "shy" and at times have had panic-like symptoms around new people, or seeing someone I haven't seen in a while. This was exacerbated when I stopped smoking pot regularly about 14 years ago (I'm 36 now), which I was using to self medicate. Also I tend to have a very difficult time in groups of more than 2 other people.

I have other disorders/secondary disorders including: depression, general anxiety, avoidance, obsessive thought patterns, compulsive internet use, sleep problems.

I have never talked openly with a group of others as is possible on this forum and I hope to benefit from it.

I am in therapy and take a low to mid dose of antidepressants. I've been on meds on and off since I was about 14.

Hey Pannier,

Welcome to SAS! A lot of us are going through what you are as well. Hopefully you'll be able to get what you're looking for here.
