    I have moderate problems with it.
    I have SF all my life, and all the time it jumps from mild to moderate... In last 2 years it was mild, but in last months it cause me lot of problems...
    Well i have some question. What are side effects of medication? Do you gain weight? Does anti depressants work too? Can medication be prescribed to a 16 years old with not severe sf?
    I can life with it, and if i wouldnt be depressed it would be much more mild.
    But the problem is, that it is very severe on 2 very important areas: Public performances and dating. I used to perform (I play guitar and piano) for 5 years, and in first years it was very severe, i have to puke before performing etc... Then it was better, i didnt puke what was great victory for me... but now i would have to start all again, i didnt perform for 2 years now...
    And the most problematic thing is dating. I cant ask a girl or told her that im in love with her, not even on MSN. My biggest fear is not rejection, but that girl would make fun out of me and that she would tell all her friends... Also even if i would date a girl, i would have extremly severe anxiety problems before date so i guess that i would fucked up everything...

    And yes, SF can be cured.
