I started these tapes about a year ago. I went through all of them but didn't do the behavioral part and basically dropped my daily practice. At the time I felt like they had helped me a little bit, but like many things in my life, I think I just got tired of doing it and quit.

Since then, I've come to terms with my social anxiety. I believe that some of what I considered social anxiety is just my introverted personality. I simply enjoy being alone more than hanging out with alot of people. I'm much more comfortable in my own skin now vs. then, rather than thinking that there's something wrong with me. If other people don't like my introversion, too bad for them.

I can socialize when I need to and I think the tapes helped me there. It sounds funny but I think my brain worked on the "problem" and it's better now. I know this is off topic but I haven't been around in awhile.

As far as the tapes go, I would follow Dr. Richards' advice and keep with it. I do think they have helped me and may pick them up again sometime.
