Just thought I'd give this forum thing a try. I'm about to do experimental exposure therapy for social anxiety disorder, which I've been diagnosed with. I never thought anything was wrong with me, my parents always told me it was just shyness and that I've always been this way. I did remember my kindergarten teacher complaining to my mom about how I should talk and interact with the other kids, but never thought too much of it. It wasn't until I started 7th grade, that I started feeling really anxious around ppl, especially ppl I didn't know. Long story short, I'm 21 now and I'm ready to get over this.
