    My CPN thinks I have GAD and social anxiety and is going to teach me techniques to control my anxiety etc. Does anyone else suffer with this and what treatments worked for you? And what were not so good. Lol!

    Thank you :)

    I have Social Anxiety.
    It can be helped using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, its a slow process but it will help if you stick with it. I recommend a book by Gillian Butler called 'Overcoming Social Anxiety and Shyness' as a great place to start.

    Drugs are available. Though I have never tried them I have not heard good things to be honest.
