    I do. I've developed it recently. Spending my time on the computer and loitering across the blackest recesses of my mind is my way of not having to aknowledge/deal with/admit I have it.

    I'm pretty sure I do. I don't talk to anyone in large groups of people that I don't know. I don't know if it's because I can't think of anything to say. I'm pretty sure it's because I'm too freaked out of how they'll accept me if I say anything. It sucks being a 14 year old who thinks he has paranoia (I put 'thinks' because I've never gone to anyone to diagnose it.)

    That is not dead which may eternal lie and with strange aeons even death may die.





    But seriously, I was diagnosed with it several years ago, although I question the prognosis. I seem to get along in society pretty well, I just hate doing so. I can never seem to judge emotions or reactions well.

    Yeah. Used to take Ativan for it, but I find a way to manage it on my own now. Don't really like drugs.

    Mmmyeah. But I'm an introvert, which means I enjoy doing things on my own, and as I work by myself and have no other need to socialize, it's just one of many disorders I'm content with. :cool:

    I think I have it, though once I get out of here, Ill be ok. I think-I know- it's because I can't freely be myself, and I'm expected to be like others want me to be, which is a common case. This is mainly my mom, she wants me to be her puppet. You dont need a persona though. There are some people who feel great around anyone, and some people who are crazy around certain people but more reserved around others. Nothing to be ashamed of. It's ok, and you have to tell yoursel that. That other people besides you DO know what you're really like. Give them a chance.

    like Mortem, see! Embrace it! HI FIVE! there is NOTHING wonr with is, as long as, thourgh the day and at the end of it, you like who you are :) :hug:

    I have some social anxiety..I dont talk much to people when Im out and about if my husband or someone else I trust isnt with me. I cant even carry on conversation with someone serving me in a store/restaraunt/ect if Im alone.. If someone I trust is with me I can talk away though.. I also fear that people think Im stupid, or ugly, or fat, and all of that other bad stuff but at the same time I dont really give a crap if they think it - Its weird and I hate it but then again Im use to it.

    I'm ridiculously socially anxious. I do like to meet and talk to people but my body doesn't. Neck spasms, nausea, heart pounding and profuse sweating.

    Hopeless :(.

    I've got it bad. It really sucks too cause i'm so lonely, wish i could make friends. I'm on Klonopin for it but it doesnt seem to help me much. Only thing that helps me is enormous quantities of alcohol. then i can be somewhat outgoing in social situations

    I have social anxiety. I have a hard time going out in public. Even looking people in the eyes is difficult. I hate thinking about the next time I have to leave the house and deal with everyone.

    I have lived with social anxiety most of my life. I'm pretty sure.
    When I was younger I used to cry because I was afraid to be in front of a crowd of people. And other things, like eating in front of people. Paranoid of what people think.

    Now - I'm the most introvert, and socially anxious person you could meet. I live in my room pretty much. I'm scared of people talking to me. I'm scared of what people think of me. I'm scared of anything that involves public speaking, even answering a question in class.

    Starting to develop into anxiety attacks as well, when I start to ponder on the thoughts of public speaking. And to which also develops in suicidal thoughts.

    Oh what fun. I fucking hate it. We;re all doomed..

    I do and it sucks because all my teachers just say is "Get over it you'll have to face it eventually." Don't you just love people in the school system that don't understand other people? Everybody says to me, "Why are you so quiet?" "Why are you so anti social?"
