Avatar m tn I'm a 50yo male married who avoids social situations whenever possible. I've battled addiction and depression over the years, both of which I believe have arisen from my social anxiety. I would consider myself somewhat quiet and somewhat introverted. I don't feel comfortable at parties, bars, or social events, especially if I don't know any of the people also attending.
5148952 tn?1364321766 You are correct that the Abilfy will not help with your social anxiety. And while I do not mean to imply that your social worker has not helped you, very few, if any, social workers are trained psychologists who can help you with this problem. It may be worth considering professional therapy to beat this phobia once and for all.
Avatar n tn It is possible that your granddaughter is suffering from social anxiety. You might wish to google phrases as "childhood anxiety" or "social anxiety in children" or similar words/phrases to read more about this issue. One question - does she speak to strangers or just "hide behind someone's back"?
Avatar n tn Is it bad that the only way I can open up to and be social with people is to be under the influence of alcohol? If this is in the wrong place, I apologize, and please move it. For instance, I'll come out of hiding from my home every once in a while, and go to a party with a close friend where there are many people I don't know. The whole time I'm there, I'm quiet and never say anything to anyone (except said friend) although I want to.
Avatar n tn m around people I sometimes shake from my anxiety. My anxiety flips on and off like a switch. Will this anxiety go away with time or keep haunting me as long as I try to be social? Can I do anything about it?
Avatar n tn Another issue he has is perhaps jealousy. Today he went to a pool party with 17 boys from his football team. One of the boys was his best/favorite friend. Because this boy did not give my son his full attention, my son stared at the boy while he played, would not join in any other groups of play and basically ruined his own good time for about 20 minutes. Only after I prodded him to play did he let go of his emotions. He is typically the only child who has a problem at a party, play group etc.
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.
Avatar f tn My 5 yr old daughter doesn't want to play with peers. She has couple of friends with whom he plays when they come to our home or when we visit them, but again she wouldn't play with them if those friends are playing with somebody else new. She would play only if those freinds are alone and not with anybody else that she didn't know of.
Avatar f tn Only people who really know me (or who are astute) know I am shy and have social anxiety, which is why, after certain social gatherings, I really need time afterwards to "recover" afterwards. My idea of a good time is reading a book.
Avatar m tn One thing to keep in mind that dividing anxiety into categories, such as social anxiety, is useful for insurance companies and drug companies and for a therapist figuring out how to help you, but isn't useful for you -- anxiety is anxiety. For all of us who suffer anxiety, whether it's called social or called something else, the root problem is that for whatever reason we begin to focus on anxious and catastrophic thinking and learning how not to do this is what helps.
Avatar n tn MY 5 year-old son can be very social and plays well with others in certain settings. Playdates with friends and even new kids he meets sometimes. In school he is very comfortable around everyone and engages in all different activities. However, whenever my husband or I take him to a child's birthday party, he freezes up and refuses to participate in any of the activities. He tells us he wants to go home. This even occurred at his best buddy's party.
Avatar f tn It sounds like your daughter could be suffering from social anxiety. If she has been on the Zoloft for 5 months and has noticed no improvement, then it's time to think about trying something different, Has she also been in therapy this whole time as well? Since this began when she was quite young and you mentioned sleepovers, makes me wonder if this may have it's roots in seperation anxiety. These are only my thoughts, I am not a doctor and am not offering a diagnosis of any sort.
Avatar m tn I am very much a social drinker and do not drink during the week or hard on the weekends. For my bachelor party I probably drank the hardest I have in my life. Waking up and drinking and drinking all night. This party lasted until Sunday when I got to the airport and i started to feel odd. I started having my first panic attack in the airport and then on the plane. I threw up on the plane and asked the flight attendant to ask for a doctor on board.
Avatar f tn So I've just recently become open with my social anxiety. I remember being in middle school and thinking that something was horribly wrong with me. I would get so nervouse around people. My body would tremble, my voice would shake and I couldn't think clearly. I've become more comfortable with being uncomfortable, and yes I do notice that there are plenty of people that are shy, but I really hate the fact that my real personality can't show when I'm around people.
494087 tn?1257793207 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 f tn Yes, it does sound like social anxiety. Have you thought about getting in to counseling to help with this?
Avatar f tn I have a presentation coming up next week, so I decided to go and seek medical help today. I went to my doctor and he diagnosed me with social anxiety. He said that the best treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy, but he prescribed me some medication to get me through this semester. He prescribed 10 mg propranolol (inderal) 3 times a day and an extra 10 mg inderal 1 hour before the presentation + 0.25 mg Xanax 1 hour before the presentation.
Avatar m tn I know, when you feel the anxiety, it leads to more anxiety because you are anxious they will notice your anxiety... Higher heart rate, blood pressure, chest pains, wish to immediately leave the place... And to me, it seems better to leave home at night or when it is colder or rainy, because there are less people out there, on the street... You are not alone!
722310 tn?1234762137 I have a question about social anxiety accompanied with phobia. I am a mother of 5 and I have had social anxiety since I was young. I am now 45. I bagan to drink and use drugs at an early age, to help bring comfort when I was around people. I had it pretty well managed, by making myself get out. I have had counseling in the past, but I never discussed this with the counsler, because I really didn't think it was a major problem for me. My 2nd son is turning 16 next month.
Avatar f tn I would also have to agree that counseling can really help with social anxiety. First of all, don't feel ashamed or embarrased about it because many people suffer from this in my opinion. In my experience, counseling can she some light on why you are feeling anxious, make it less confusing, and gvie you as step by step approach to confront it.
Avatar f tn Yes you do have social anxiety. I have had it for years and now it has turned into agoraphobia. I also have panic attacks. I am not saying all this could happen to you but just be aware of these things. Have you seen a therapist? I stay secluded to my home but my therapist is trying to help me with these issues. I take xanax for the panic attacks and anxiety. But they do have different meds. I suggest you go to a mental health facility in your area. They can be quite helpful.
Avatar f tn So I have endured Social Anxiety all my life. Along with Depression, these two make a great pair! My question is this. How does one go about getting a job, going back to school, buying a car, etc, when you don't have money, because you can't get a job because you can't be around people (social anxiety)? This *****. It's really a nasty circle.
899491 tn?1243773627 Is it possible to have social anxiety with bp? I don't do the spending sprees or have extramartial affairs but I certainly feel paranoia. I start withdrawing after my manic episode. It all starts with not feeling comfortable around people and I feel highly feels like I want to jump out of my skin. I have trouble speaking too. I would get sentences all mixed up or start stammering away when I have to talk to someone. I start to withdraw into my little world.
Avatar f tn If you find the answer to this question, let me know. Iam the exact same way. People seem to think i am stuck-up, or a b tch. My husband is the only one that gets me. One thing I have learned, when i do talk to people, i try to talk enough to bring up my shyness and it seems after that they know im not stuck-up and they reach out more. I dont take it anymore but when i was on lexapro, i was more confident with who i was and was able to talk more to people.
Avatar n tn I believe I have social anxiety and am currently seeing a therapist. However, managing my symptoms has become a daily challenge. How do I prevent panic attacks when I'm around others? I still get really anxious around strangers which prevents me from making genuine relationships?
