I'm not sure if it's pride, ego or both. But I hate showing weakness to others. I've always been this way. Which means I never talk about my problems to family or friends.

I find it extremely humiliating when others can see or sense my anxiety.

So everything I do in order to conquer my SA is done in absolute silence. Getting meds, seeking therapy, coming to this site ect...

Can anyone else relate? I know some of you are open with your immediate family about depression or SA...

Totally. I'm the same way. I think it's a need to not show weakness. I only will bring it up casually, not giving any clue that it's important to me. As in, I'll say "yeah, I'm pretty nervous about a presentation I have tomorrow," not "I'm scared out of my mind and I wish I could just skip class." When I went to my doc for meds, he seemed a bit concerned that I'm so isolated.. but I just can't bring myself to really talk about my problems to anyone.
