Of the doctors I've talked to, they all said I have social anxiety which contributes to my depression and drinking. I'm going to a young adults outpatient program which is with people, who some of which are going through the same thing. I figured this would be best for me as I could learn how to get over my social anxiety. The problem is despite being surrounded by people who are in the same place as me, I still feel inadequate to them, and whenever they initiate conversation I can't come up with anything to say, my mind feels like it hit a wall. My question is are there any methods people use to help get themselves over this?
