I was diagnosed with social phobia 11 years ago. I am a 44 year old male. I don't have any friends because I find it very hard to talk to people and make friends. I have had a problematic work history because it is so hard for me to deal with the pressures of jobs because of my social phobia. I work now but it is a low paying job that I got with the help of a social services agency and it is not a hard or stressful job. Anyway I would like to hear from anybody.
