Hi all,
I'm obviously a newbie here, so I'll *try* to give a little about myself. I'm about to turn 27 and have had severe SAD for as long as I can remember. I can remember episodes of social anxiety going all the way back to before kindergarten. Now it is so severe that I can't do anything or talk to anybody. I've got the feelings of isolation, loneliness, and depression that comes with this whole mess.

I recently(about a year ago) started therapy and my therapist says I have severe generalized social anxiety with OCD tendencies, or something like that. She also said that I was definitely one of her more extreme cases. So the only thing in the world I'm good at doing is SAD...well at least I'm good at something.

Well, I'm surprised was able to write this up, as it's really hard for me to talk to people, especially when it's about myself. It doesn't matter if it's face to face, on the phone, through email, or via carrier pigeon, even the most basic communication is difficult for me.

So...that's me in a nutshell...:rain
