I've had SA since I was 12 or so, so that would make it 14 years for me. I wasn't diagnosed until I was 25, however.

Over 10 years, but not my whole life. Not quite sure, probably about the time I would become self-conscious about my voice (as whatever age one would expect to really care about that)

I voted for "my whole life" but come to think of it, that wouldn't be exactly true. I remember I wasn't shy at all when I was little. My SA had developed later on, I would probably say that junior high and then high school contributed to that the most.

Since I can remember.
The first time I got really anxious was in kindergarten and it just grew from there.
I wasn't actually diagnosed until I was about 15, though. Before that, I had no idea what SA was or that I could have it. I just thought I was really shy.

I don't think my sa started until some point in school. I had SA by Junior High for sure. I might have had sa as early as elementary school, because that was when other kids started to pick on me. I chose "my entire life", because my sa goes beyond 10 years. It definitely has been the majority of my life.
