I tried searching around this forum for someting relating to social anxiety and didn't really find the kind I was looking for. I saw the one that had a sort of online test to tell how bad your anxiety is, but I KNOW how bad mine is, I don't need some kind of test to me. Anyway, the reason I'm posting this is that i was hoping I could find somebody to talk to who's going through the same thing I am. A lot of people when they hear about social anxiety either think it's crap or that it's able to be overcame by simply "getting out more." They don't understand that it's something that makes me, as well as other people, suicidal. I can't hold a job because of this, and I NEVER socialize. I tried last week and could only manage to stay for 10 minutes. I thought about it for the past week and how much of a failure I am for not being able to just be normal.
