Re: Social phobia
I've had it all my life, in my forties now so I've had it since before computers came along. I'm just so fed up of freakin out in social settings, I'm fine at work until we have a morning tea or some kind of non-work function, then I'm a complete anxiety ridden mess. I usually do a lot of positive self talk but it doesnt really work, I still feel awkward.

Male or Female ? Because it really depends on gender, anxiety performs different for each of us but the most useful thing about it is to make a list of the things that make you anxious then don`t do them, that improves the quality of your life.

Female, I couldnt even go to kindegarten when I was a little kid, used to make myself sick from anxiety, strange thing is I can remember really enjoying the activites in the classroom. I love learning and have done lots of courses and study and thats all fine but I its a totally different matter when it comes to any social occasions. That would be the only thing on my list but its pretty difficult to avoid all social occasions, like I said before for me even a morning tea at work falls into my 'social phobia' category. It also makes for a lonely life when you cant interact with people on the social level.

Re: Social phobia
Hi, I'm for the best part over it because I tackled my fears head on. I'm back at Uni and in class I make sure that I am the first one to get up and talk and ask the questions. You see that if you shy away from doing these things then your social phobia will get worse. Other students at Uni say to me that I seem to know everything and am very confident. Little do they know that I'm still nervous as shit. If you keep on tackling your fears head on then it gets easier everyday. I hate taking the train. I did it often enough and now it doesn't really bother me so much. You know that people these days are so self absorbed that they don't notice you anyway. It's only that you think they do. Whatever you believe in is fine, right. I repeat in my head the words "confidence in Christ, confidence in Christ. And that really helps me when I feel embarrassed and socially anxious.

I'm scared of sharks and water: I go spearfishing
I'm scared of speaking in public: I am the first one to get up and speak.
I'm scared of getting up in front of people: I go around playing gigs and sing with my guitar.
I'm scared of going to the supermarket and restaurants: I do it more often now.

You get the point I'm making?

You have to tackle your fears head on and do it often. You will eventually get better ok.

Your not alone in this.

I really do fight the fear and I've achieved a lot along the way, I'm just getting tired of having to do it the hard way and feeling in constant fight or flight mode. I seem to feel sick to my stomach all the time. Its a long journey. That video above really put a few pieces in the puzzle though.

don't force yourself to do things that make you uncomfortable. don't conform to what other people want you to be. don't attend the non-work function. if they somehow make you attend, find another job that you may end up enjoying more.
