    I have just written my first thread, but came across this and thought id introduce myself.

    i am 17, and in the space of 3 bad years at school i have developed all sorts of problems mainly social anxiety, no confidence that has took over my life, and suddenly affecting everything. My friends deserted me, and i have lost social skills and have become scared and unable to express myself and am even scared of the door bell as i will have to talk to my mam or dads friends. Just writing this down, alarms me to how many fears i have.

    but basically i am going to have to start college again next year, and its my last chance, so i would really like to try and get myself back together again, and talk to people on here, as no where else will people understand or be able to talk about these things, i hope we will be able to help each other if anyone else is going through a similar thing.
    thanks katie

    Welcome Katie I hope college goes well for you. You will find that people in college are more open and accepting of others. I think getting councilling for your anxiety would be a great idea even if you tell coucillors at your college they will help you. Glad your here

    Welcome to the forum Katie!! I also think you should talk to a therapist so you can learn some coping skills.. This will help put things in a better perspective for you..PM me anytime you need to talk..
