Hi there. I have severe social anxiety. I just need to be able to talk to people who understand what SA feels like. Im also at a very painful phase of my life. I am thinking about leaving my dream job, the job that I love and which Im no longer sure about being able to do because of SA. Did u know SA is called the illness of missed opportunities? Now I know why they call it that.

Hello and welcome. If you don't mind me asking.. Why are you thinking about leaving your dream job? Or why would your dream job cause you so much anxiety?

Hi Jurexic5, this is in answer to ur question about why my dream job is causing me anxiety. Simple. It is a job which requires a lot of interaction with people. I am surrounded by people all the time. I suffer some but I still love it. Its what I wanted to do ever since I was a kid. I don't want to leave. I've studied a lot and worked very hard to get here. Its painful to talk about this so I guess I won't be talking about it any more.
