Nice to meet all of you. I'll tell you a bit about me: I am a 16 year old girl who has suffered from social anxiety for about four years now. One of my biggest issues is battling with my insecurities and self esteem. I guess you could say I am also very paranoid. Because my social anxiety leaves me with intense fears of being judged, I often think people are talking about me behind my back, and it leaves me in constant fear of others, and makes it hard for me to trust anyone. :sad: I have often thought of suicide as a way out. I have even had a failed attempt when I was fourteen... I am hoping this forum will make me change my mind about resorting to that. Thanks for reading!!
