Avatar f tn I know I keep re-posting and re-posting. I have severe social anxiety even around my own family. Today I ate with my family trying to face my social anxiety. Whenever I am eating with them I get nervous when I talk to my 5 year old niece. I feel like they are watching my every move. I feel like they are judging me. Whenever my dad speaks to me its usually because I do something wrong like forgetting to take out the trash or not locking the door.
Avatar n tn Hey there, I've had the same exact thing happen to me, and it started during a job interview. However, now, it's whenever I am feeling very anxious, mostly from social anxiety. Did you ever come to a conclusion as to what it is?
Avatar n tn How can I find a psychiatrist and/or counselor who knows both ADD in adult women, and Social Anxiety Disorder well enough to help a person who suffers from both to get through the Social Security Disability process? This will be in two parts because I exceeded the maximum length.
Avatar f tn My brother has social anxiety and it's getting worse he recently had a job interview and couldn't control his anxiety it got so bad that he had to tell the people that where doing the group interview that he couldn't control his anxiety he got very depressed over this situation and went to get drunk I am so worried for him since he said to me that he is tired and feels he can't handle it any more he feels like giving up and putting an end to it I am afraid that he will indeed try to kill himself
Avatar n tn You said you are born sensitive and shy and have social anxiety. That means your personality is prone to general anxiety and social anxiety. In order to change your personality, you need powerful and drastic measures. They are professional psychotherapy, love and religion. They can change your life. Try to love and help instead of fear and avoid others. Those who love others will be loved.
Avatar f tn I have always struggled with some strange form of social anxiety/low self esteem, and could never quite get to the root of it. Interestingly enough, because I have out of neccessity developed a very high sensitivity for cognitively picking up on social cues, I am able to perform quite well, if not thrive, in cross cultural scenarios. Some other cultures embrace ideas such as being forthwrite in general and also apprehensive about new people, etc., which suits me.
Avatar n tn my 27 year old did manage to graduate from college with a degree and says he wants to get job, but he doesn't really try, despite all the suggestions we give about how to get a job. I even got an interview scheduled for him and at the last minute he wouldn't go. He says he has applied, but he has no previous experience and did no internships in college. The real problem is that he is afraid to talk to people.
Avatar n tn My husband and I are wanting to relocate, but I fear having to interview for a job and all that goes with moving to an unfamiliar place. Thanks again, will try the exercise to use up some of this anxious energy. Take care and all my best 2 U!
Avatar m tn Before an interview or social situation I'm not completely comfortable with. But this is not what you describe--- your experience is debilitating. I think you really DO have to do the therapy. If they have ruled out physical reasons-- and this is strictly anxiety related--- you must work on that to overcome it hon. Borrow the money. It will be worth it. If you can't work because of this---- working on the anxiety will allow you to do that. Also, medication may be necessary.
301494 tn?1259518001 Because he cannot get a job I have asked him to be responsible for chores around the house until he goes to school in the fall. He did try doing that, but that was also causing him anxiety. He can't take on a big vague job like "keep the house clean" He can do small jobs that are parceled out. I suspect that my son is a perfectionist of sorts. If he is not sure he can be the best at something or do it to meet defined standards or measures, then it causes him great anxiety.
Avatar f tn The older I get, the harder it is to get along with other people. It interferes with my holding down a job. I take everything personally and get mad and get my feelings hurt all the time. I either hate someone or like them, no in between. How is someone supposed to keep a job? Working is just another stressful event. I also have recurrent major depression, anxiety disorder, and "possible bipolar type 2.
Avatar n tn It is a job I like and I know that I am able to do that job, its just those feelings... I have an interview for a new job tomorrow, and this morning when I woke up (it's not even today!), I had that morning sickness, it wasn't as bad as the previous ones though, but it was still there and I don't think that is normal stress. I took 1/2 pill of my prescribed ones and the day went fine, I still worked from home.
Avatar m tn If im in class, I cant ask questions or speak in class because I feel like everyone is judging me and that im acting like an idiot. If im at a party or any type of social gathering, im always the guy sitting by himself in the corner of the room watching tv or texting people on the cell phone (sometimes I even fake text people, just so I look like some doing something and have a 'reason' to be not talking to anyone) or anything that doesnt involve conversing with other people.
Avatar f tn The anxiety is quite bad at times, to the point where I'm scared to go into any kind of social situation or job interviews because of my anxiety. To be clear, I'm not depressed, just anxious. I hope some can relate to this, and hopefully give me some advice/suggestions. Thanks a lot!
Avatar m tn If they could only have seen my apartment 24 hours after that interview, that would let them know how ready I felt for this type of job. It was my first interview with multiple people. First time I felt like the interview didn't really mean I was closer to the job than anyone else. It is usually a 'seal-the-deal' type of situation. So. I don't know what is going to happen.
Avatar f tn I've been waiting for a week to hear back from a job interview and my heart palpitations have been out of control. This job is all I think about and I can't seem to distract myself with anything. All this stress and anxiety is affecting my physical health and I don't know what to do. I replay the interview over and over in my mind. I overanalyze every word that came out of my mouth and I beat myself up for not doing a better job.
Avatar f tn I was just wondering if anyone has been on birth control pills and have suffered from anxiety or depression issues? I have been on the pill for 11yrs now and cant take how I am feeling anymore. I went on the pill for irregular periods, but since then I have been feeling blah, libido has decreased severely, I have sinus problems- I found out I have no allergies- so I think it is related to axiety, I worry constantly about everything; I get so nervous I get light headed sometimes.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with social anxiety years ago when I was in college. Since then I have been seeing a psychiatrist. I am 30 now. Along with talk therapy, my psychiatrist prescribed me Effexor. This has helped me for several years until I started getting hives from the medication. I've since gone off it and for the first month I was fine. Then I started looking for a new job and felt some anxiety.
Avatar n tn I'm too scared to turn in a job application, let alone to a job interview. I avoid talking on or answering the phone as much as I can. I just feel like I'll be alone the rest of my life if I don't get help, but I'm scared about seeing a psychiatrist, in fear he'll just laugh and tell me nothing's wrong with me. Or I'll stumble over my words trying to explain what's wrong with me. I just want some confirmation from someone before I make an appointment.
Avatar f tn Right now I am unemployed,don't think I could even interview for a job without them thinking I was crazy. I fear I might break down during an interview. I can no longer afford my psychologist so I am trying to rely on some coping mechanism she helped me with. Why is there no government coverage when it comes to mental health for seeing a psychologist. I am canadian and live in a smaller northern city. The wait lists are long due to shortages. Any advice is appreciated to help cope.

Avatar m tn However, I still feel like I am not quite connected to myself and my environment. I have a general low energy level and have bad social anxiety. Not the kind of anxiety where you feel trapped with no escape, or like your life is over, or like you are going crazy, like I used to have, more of a general nervousness around people now. And I have a lot of trouble getting in touch with my emotions.
367831 tn?1284262544 lol Actually I think the meds indicated for autism/AS/PDD are designed to lower the effects of stimuli. Take the edge off, if you will. Maybe the meds were indicated for social anxiety? We don't know; not in the script. Persons with AS tend to be a master of their language. They tend to have very accurate usage of vocabulary and have a a good vocabulary. They tend to paint detailed pictures with words.
Avatar m tn Almost over a year ago i was taking 300 mg seroquel with 20 mg of fluoxetine, but i stopped taking both of them because the Seroquel was making me too tired all the time and I just decided I didn't want to depend on drugs, but now its different because I'm trying to go back to school and I get panic attacks and anxiety in classrooms or basically just around large groups of people (social anxiety). It gets pretty bad though...
Avatar f tn This sounds a lot like me. I’ve always done very well in school but my family history and poor decisions on my part have given me a lot of social anxiety. Even though I received a scholarship I tried dropping out of college to just start working instead but my parents were able to get me to enroll back in and just take my courses a little slower.
740593 tn?1232491904 But a job is a job. And with the economy and job market being what they are, I am not questioning the long as I have a job! I wonder how my fibro will be with this new workload. I am trying to fathom a work day THAT long. I start on Wednesday, and I am more than a little scared. Benefits start April 1.
800851 tn?1260346702 I think almost everyone, bipolar or not has some sort of social anxiety. I used to be the social butterfly but as I am getting older I don't feel the need to be the center of attention. I get really anxious in social situations, even when it's my best friends. I only feel this way when I am depressed and/or am not feeling confident with myself. Sometimes it's my moods or my medications or sometimes it's just because it's things that are going on in my life.
