Bad social anxiety - December 6th 2011, 04:17 AM

So I suffer from pretty bad social anxiety. Its gotten so bad that I have a really hard time just going to get gas or going to the grocery store on my own. I used to be in therapy and my therapist kept telling me its something I need to work on and to get over. Problem is, she never exactly told me how to get over it, she just gave me meds which didn't really help.

Does anyone else have trouble with this? Any tips on how to cope or possibly get over this anxiety?

And here you are living, despite it all.

Re: Bad social anxiety - December 8th 2011, 12:23 AM

I have social anxiety also, and my psych professor who is also a psychologist told me that the only way to get over your fear is to face it head on and it will be the hardest thing you will ever do but it will be worth it. I haven't been able to face many of my worst fears yet though but I'm getting there. Just remember that the only power your fears have is the power you give them. If you refuse to let your fears take over your life, then there is no way they can. Also it's very unlikely that people are actually going to think the things you think people will think about you and even if they do, its not going to hurt you.
