Hello. I am 50 years old and live in Florida. Haven't been formally diagnosed with Social Anxiety but am going to see a counselor on Monday. All my life I have only had a few friends. I am very quiet, and can't start a conversation with anyone new. It gets me down.

Welcome Deva! I'm pretty quiet around strangers and generally only speak when spoken to. So I can relate to what you're going through. Have fun on the site, there's plenty of nice people here. Also, you might want to check out the chat sometime, it can be pretty fun.

Thank you for your responses!

I just took that Lebowitz test on this site for social phobia - results were "severe social phobia" so I guess I do need some help.

Most of my life I just accepted that I was different and that is what I am like. I guess the job stress is now what is driving me to do something about it.
