Re: BAD Social Anxiety ... HELP!
What are some ideas if your social anxiety is more flared up around people you find attractive, or only around people you find attractive?

I think I am phobic of love. I only shut down when a guy I like appears attracted to me in return. It's like I shut down even more, not get more excited and know how to respond.

Re: BAD Social Anxiety ... HELP!
Your conscious mind tells you that you need a crutch to get over this.

Then, pick one. Maybe kava would help you, the herbal version of a benzo.

After a while you will get over your anxiety when you start forgetting your crutch and have the confidence to go without it.

I don't know, but I have a feeling that this is the step necessary for you to take.

1. Learn to play an instrument, any one.
2. Mediate
3. Try "natural" relaxing teas or joining a club based on a hobby you like.
4. If all else fails, begin a conversations with a complete strangers, making simple small talk about the kind of stuff you find on GLP and reveal the agenda that TBTB have for our world.

Re: BAD Social Anxiety ... HELP!
The easiest way to go about it is to go out more. Start going out to one store or restaurant every day, and start adding places to go for whatever reason -- make up a reason. You'll start hating the traffic more than the missions. Move your way up gradually to more crowded scenes.

Social anxiety is another way of saying you hate the whole ball of wax... Let's face it -- life is a nonsensical piece of shit, and you're surrounded by the sheep who watch dancing and singing shows -- reference to latest post -- *burp*

That's right, it's the land full of monkey people....

It is actually, I use to be just like your self, my problem was I'd think about it too much and trigger a panic attack just by getting all worried about it. This would always happen in a situation that I could not easily get out of, such as a doctors waiting room for an appointment, a classroom with a lot of people I don't know and public transport when going to some place important.

You have to stop worrying about it completely, only sit down in a room where you're closest to the door you came in from. Cut down on the booze, and definitely stop drinking anything with caffeine in it, it would also not hurt to try and remove anything that causes your stomach to become upset.

Its important that you eat enough fruit and veg, especially eat things with lots of B vitamins as those are essential to a health state of mind, alcohol inhibits the absorption of those vitamins so do cut down.

Re: BAD Social Anxiety ... HELP!
It takes work and it is a gradual process but you can beat it. I've been working on my social anxiety for a while now and have made a lot of progress. Like I said it takes time, but knowing you have a problem helps. Then you can start to catch your negative thoughts.

Exposing yourself to situations that cause anxiety is good advice but you should do it slowly. Don't go right for the situations that would cause the worst anxiety, take small steps.

There are websites and forums specifically for this problem. Check out [link to www.socialanxietysupport.com] for one, they have a great forum.

Re: BAD Social Anxiety ... HELP!
Only solution is repeated exposure. Break out of your comfort zone, perhaps see if there is a meetup group in your area for those overcoming social anxiety. If there is, then great, because it should offer some assurance knowing meeting those who are overcoming the same thing.

Re: BAD Social Anxiety ... HELP!
everyone who says "the only way is ____ " is wrong. different things work for different people. this forum is not the best place to ask.

things that have worked for me at different times

Paxil / Lexapro . the beginning of my battle when i decided to acknowledge/face the program. it did make me feel numb/zombified but it also allowed me to face more scary social situations, and over time, conquer the smaller fears like this.

meditation / deep breathing . meditation is not religious and depp breathing exercises truly salm and soften the body's natural adrenaline / fight or flight responses which are overactive in those with anxiety. now i do slow/deep breathing exercises before enteirng a stressful situation. i meditate abd focus on my body's TRUE FEELINGS IN THE MOMENT, *NOT*fear of what MIGHT happen or what bad things HAVE happened that have been painful. focus on only real feelings, and push out negative feelings and dont let yourself imagine bad scenarios happening. envision good things happening only.

diet and exercise. the place to begin while you consider the others above . i went from eating junk/not watching my diet, to a "paleo" type of diet, modified by me to work for me. beef, pork, chicken, kale, spinach, veggies, fruit.. thats all. no grians, starches, processed foods, chemicals you dont know what they are, GMOs, or preservatives. get regular sleep and lots of sleep (anxiety and depression are linked to poor sleep cycles/patterns) and exercise at least a little daily.. it truly helps you feel better.

finally, consider a CONTROLLED psychedelic trip. psilocybin, the chemical which makes you trip/hallucinate when you eat magic mushrooms, has been linked to "permanent personality changes" for the better , curing/treating PTSD, stopping peoples alcoholism (btw if you drink, stop) etc. but you need to know what youre doing for this. read erowid.com a ton if this option interests you. johns hopkins university (leading medical university) is studying mushrooms' health benefits right now.

good luck my friend.

Re: BAD Social Anxiety ... HELP!
^sorry i made a lot of typos, im in the dark right now on a laptop! wanted to add - it is phenomenal that you are starting to treat/fix this thing about yourself, and thats the first step on a positive journey,.it will be hard but the good news is there is no social malady that cant be cured by reversing the processes that let it happen to begin with. we live in a crazy crazy world and its quite common to be affected by it. it is not a "natural" way of life we have but by returning to more natural ways of treating the body. the meds cna be good to get you started and to allow you physically to enter those situations and scenarios which will help you get better by facing your fears little by little. you will know it is time to stop the meds (always ween off slowly) when the zombified feeling is worse than the anxiety is anymore.
