Re: BAD Social Anxiety ... HELP!
Haven't seen much posted about this, but I'll throw in my $.02 here. OP, have you tried to meditate? If not, try adding meditation into your daily routine, perhaps in the mornings soon after you wake up. Many people with anxiety start out the day "ok" and then progressively see themselves get worse. With that said, try meditating shortly after you wake up.

I won't go into "how" to meditate, but suffice it to say, find a safe, sacred, and quiet place and sit in stillness for a length of time. Use this quiet time to quiet the mind and observe your thoughts. Just "BE" and release all judgements you run across. The idea here is to train yourself to control your thoughts. That is, to be able to turn your mind's racing thoughts off. That right there is the key.

If you practice this (yes, it takes practice) you will eventually be able to put yourself into a calming state almost at will. The only trick is to actually "DO" it.

Try it and see what happens.

Peace.

This is wise advice that can help you in all areas of your life, not just anxiety. The world becomes a much simpler place when you can control your own thoughts.

Do you ever flush or itch when having a "panic attack"?

Obviously not if you disagree. There is only 1 answer to this question. Stop trying to control that which you have no control.

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.
