Common Questions and Answers about Social anxiety parties


Avatar f tn Anyone else get social anxiety in big groups? I have always been an anxious person in general but i have always Been able to manage it and show up to group events. I have noticed now though the farther along i get the more anxious i get and the more i get the overwhelming urge to bolt from events. Its getting bad too. Any one else or any ideas?
Avatar m tn I don't feel comfortable at parties, bars, or social events, especially if I don't know any of the people also attending. At party or other social functions, I tend to watch from the sidelines instead of engage in discussions with others. Oh sure, I give the occasional greeting...."How you doing"...."What's new"..bla bla bla. But that's about the extent of it. I really dont' care for small talk of no substance.
494087 tn?1257796807 I was diagnosed with social anxiety and panic disorder a year ago. I take remeron and klonopin but the doctor says only to take them at night. I think I need some medication to get through the day but I am afraid to tell him I am having trouble getting through the day. I always have a butterfly feeling in my stomach and when I have to go in public I get very nervous and feel like everyone is looking at me. I guess my question is does anyone else feel this way and what should I do?
Avatar n tn I am wondering if this is just a emotional and pyschological problem or actually a reason for or maybe a helper to Social Anxiety Disorder. And whether SSRIs would help if it is not Social Anxiety Disorder. Thanks for your time and thoughts in advance.
Avatar n tn I've had to deal with social anxiety for years but never thought I had a problem. When I'm alone or with a close friend (I only have a few), I can easily be myself. I'm naturally a very fun, talkative, corky chick who always seems to amuse my closest friends. Whenever I'm with a large group of people, I become a social butterfly. In a bar, club, party etc... I'm always very social with everyone and I make a good first impression.
Avatar n tn Our child suffers from severe social anxiety and much of what you wrote is very similar in our case - reached mileposts well ahead of her peers and yet socially ... Today, some researchers believe that anxiety disorders may also be a developmental disorder - the first four items you listed at the bottom of your post indicate both developmental issues as well as anxiety issues. Her inflexibility and frustration levels are also indicative of anxiety.
Avatar f tn Don't get hung up on labels, and don't search the old Google for things that might be wrong with you. Anxiety is anxiety -- the labels are more for insurance company and pharmaceutical company purposes. I'd ask how long this has been going on for -- teenage years are full of changes as you grow from a kid into an adult. Hormones go nuts, life starts getting harder, and you get exposed to more information you have to process.
Avatar f tn I believe that I have social anxiety, but I am not completely sure because my symptoms are not exactly like those described in most of the research I have been doing. I am 23 and I enjoy going out for a night on the town. I recently moved to a new city and have made a some friends that I have hung out with only a handful of times. When they call to go out, or meet up with some people that I have not yet met, I am excited to go.

4810971 tn?1359480360 My mother has depression, OCD, and social anxiety disorder, and lately it is getting worse. I am 15, and I have Bipolar disorder and OCD, so I get depressed a lot, too, but nothing like this. At night, she will sit on the couch with her head in her hands, and will stare at nothing for hours, no matter how much we try and talk to her, and we eventually give up. This happens every night, no matter what.
Avatar m tn The details about your son's behaviour appear to suggest that he might be suffering from anxiety - probably social phobia. I might suggest you do a google search of the term "childhood anxiety" or something similar to see if the description matches that of your son.
Avatar f tn I agree that if she is content with a few good friends then that is her preferance which isn't bad. Birthday parties are notoriously hard on kids so I would keep expectations low at those types of events. But what I would keep my eye on is the anxiety part. While how many friends she has doesn't matter, it is more of an issue if she feels very uncomfortable on the inside/ anxious. Not wanting to speak in school is an indicator of anxiety. This is something to keep your eye on.
1007653 tn?1259389567 Hi everyone. Before anything some info about me. I've been having anxiety for about 4 months, been on some alternative therapies and finally tried panicyl, a natural alternative to antidepressants. My biggest problem was nausea which has really reduced since taking panicyl and now I'm in a better stage, my symptoms have really lowered, but I still have those irrational fears that were born with the anxiety and I never had before.
404138 tn?1308945256 I did not go around my family for the 9 mos that I was pregnant, alot of the reason they THINK is because of my BF but really it was my ANXIETY/PANIC attacks that I get, I went off my meds and all so I wanted to do what was best for my son, social situations ESPECIALLY my family get me really panicky, I remember one easter (before finding help & getting on meds) I would drink a glass of wine before a family occassion. Just a quick background on my family...
Avatar f tn My husband suffers from social anxiety. Its gotten so bad the last three years that its to the point where we have no social life as a couple. We don't go out together at all. No movies, no dinner at restaurants, no church, no parties. He won't even try. If we do go anywhere its because I beg him, then we usually leave early or walk out on the movie because he is in such a state. Most days when he gets off work he just plays video games.
Avatar n tn Lately she has been telling children she doesn't like them. I feel horrible and I am thinking she has a social anxiety problem. She was in school this past year and her teacher never said anything. Should I be concerned?
Avatar f tn , extremely shy temperament, social anxiety disorder) that can account for the sorts of symptoms he displays. That's why the evaluation is so critical.
Avatar f tn Well when I was eleven i was bullied alot at school and never told my mom about it and i stopped wanting to play with my friends but eventually i opened up and asked for new friends and i started to feel better. She could be a very shy and might have things in her mind locked away. Talk to her and see if she comes around.
Avatar m tn what are your views regarding social situations where alcohol is served? Basically I'm very weak if everyone is looped having a good time and of course I'll want to jump in on the fun. Since I'm new to the whole sober scene, I really fear how to act or what to say. I mean, I don't want to stay home all my life, but believe this will be my biggest challenge. I can get caught up in the excitement quite easily which could be very depressing in the aftermath.
Avatar m tn "Do you think the 'what iffs' are just plain insecurity rather than something that the subconscious mind is aware of which I am not? " The "what ifs" are solely a symptom of anxiety....and a VERY common one. Pretty much anyone who suffers from ANY form of anxiety experiences that. Just to give you an example....if a person has extreme anxiety and panic attacks, they will constantly "what if"...."What if I have a panic attack in the grocery store?"....
433485 tn?1321816990 Hello Sue357. I have been suffering from social anxiety for over three years and i have been on XR Seroquel for the last year in a half. it has been helping me find peace within myself, but anxiety still haunts me daily. Mostly when i go out to work, parties or even a simple phone call.
Avatar n tn It is possible that your son is suffering from anxiety - social anxiety to be exact. Depression and sensitivity issues are often co-morbid with anxiety. Our child was diagnosed with severe social phobia and depression at six years of age so do not think that six years is young for this issue.
Avatar m tn But as I read your post I get the sense of social anxiety more than anything else. Were you find social situations awkward? There is medication for anxiety alone. But that would boil down to what your doctor sees wrong with you. My way of looking at some anti-depressants is that can make an anxiety sufferer worse because it is lifting them. As the drug is meant to do. Lift the mood. Anxiety medication is to relax you. Bring you down. I'm not saying all anti-depressants are bad for anxiety.
Avatar m tn For example she goes to lots of parties and I have constant anxiety that she is having fun with other guys when I want her to have fun with me. I'll get jealous if she takes a picture with another guy and I'll constantly believe that because she took a picture with someone else that means she likes that guy. Please give me some feedback and advice as quickly as possible.
Avatar n tn Our 7 year has suddenly developed all the characteristics of an anxiety disorder after experiencing the "embarassment" (her word) of spilling juice all over her school uniform at lunch. This now plays itself out in her getting "tummy aches" every morning before school, immediately before lunch at school, and in every social setting where she is expected to eat with and in front of other children (i.e. birthday parties, Sunday school snacks, etc).
Avatar f tn Hi. I'm writing because I suffer big anxiety sometimes. But this feeling change so often. When I have to speak in public sometimes I can do it so so I'm not perfect but I can handle it . Other times as today I feel I will dye infront of people I feel my heart is so fast I'm shaking I have stomachache and I don't know how to stop. How can I overcome this?
Avatar f tn Any moms out there who are having a hard time trying to relax during their pregnancy with all going on in the world? I hate politics and it's everywhere. TV, social media, work, the grocery store, the millions of discussions between husband and his buddies, etc...... everything makes me feel sick. I'm bringing an innocent life into a world that is almost impossible to deal with.
915369 tn?1355318410 I was diagnosed by a psychiatrist after wrongly being diagnosed with psychosis nos, social anxiety disorder, and borderline personality disorder by a court ordered psychiatrist who only saw me once every 3 months and never actually talked to me. The medication I'm on now helps A LOT, I was living in a different world before, one I hoped I would never see my next bday every year. I'm very confident that the psychiatrist I was just seeing was bang on her money with this diagnosis.
3060903 tn?1398568723 Cognitive behavioral therapy for anxiety Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the most widely-used therapy for anxiety disorders. Research has shown it to be effective in the treatment of panic disorder, phobias, social anxiety disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder, among many other conditions.
