Good video! Congratulations for your courage!
I specially identify with the "no-personality" problem, even if in the end you say you do have it :p (I also identify with the contradictory affirmation).

I personally feel that I passed through my adolescence trying so much to please and be like others that I didn´t learned to have my own opinions and tastes... (among everything else, really...)
keep strong! :)

Good job, that takes courage. The first thing that usually strikes me about SA videos like these, including yours, is that people with SA often don't even look or sound like someone with SA. I think it just goes to show you how irrational our thoughts are, that we criticize ourselves so much.

What really touched me about your vid is when you were talking about how debilitating SA has been for you, your entire life, I could really hear the pain and sadness in your voice when you spoke of that. And I know exactly how you feel, to live a lifetime with this is more than anyone should have to endure.

But the good news is that you are aware of what's going on, of what you need to do, don't stop fighting. Good luck...

I agree with what everyone here said. It takes so much courage to post a video like this. I am 21 years old and SA controls my life. I especially agree with what Jeff said. No one knows how much pain we are in and nobody and I mean NOBODY deserves this. In all honesty I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy.

Watching your video I could tell you were a little anxious, yet you controlled yourself very well and did an incredible job. I have to say that as I was watching it I actually began to tear up when you said you could never be yourself. I have always felt the same way and seeing the pain in your eyes as you said it really struck me. It is sad that we have this problem. I wish we could just be ourselves, whatever that really means. Anyways once again great job, I wish I had the courage that you do. :D

hey not bad! I know it can be hard to post stuff on youtube. I tried recording myself like that once but it felt so weird talking to the camera and I found myself unable to think clearly. But you did it so good job! =)

Great job! You don't look nervous at all. The only indication that I could get that might give away that your a "shy" person is that your voice is very soft and low toned. I had to turn the volume all the way up to hear. I don't know how anxious you were with putting this together, but you look very relaxed. Great job! Videos like this are not only helpful for you, but also for the rest of us. :)

Wow, congratulations!:clap You sound very intelligent, and I can relate to a lot of what you said. I don't think I could ever put a video of myself on youtube, I'm too ugly lol.
