I get so angry when I run into someone unexpectedly and I have to talk to them...i'm not angry that I have to talk to them..i'm angry that it automatically sets off this huge pulse of instant anxiety through my body. I went in to get my morning latte today and ran into an old college professor just as I was leaving.....when this happens the pain from the knot in my stomach that i immediately get as soon as i see them drives me insane...it feels like my diaphram is going to rip in half...i feel like such a jackass.......so i come back take one ativan and its gone....i just dont get it....do u guys have these types of social problems with anxiety...i feel like such a fool...AAAHHHH!!!

thanks scool

Hello TakeitEZ. I am sorry to hear of your distress in restaurants, and your sopcial anxiety. I am glad to hear though that you are taking meds for the anxiety.. Your therapist may be able to help you conquer some of your anxiety through exercises for social anxiety. Maybe taking hints from others that have social anxiety may be beneficial, and speaking with you Dr about taking you medication before getting into a socially anxious situation may help, if you are allowed to adjust medication according to your situation, this may also help control some of the sudden anxiety that you face as well, since you will have a safety net before the confrontation. I hope things get better soon. Take care Phoelona

I have alotta issues with social anxiety. Tho since I do most of my communications online no one would be the wiser. I wouldnt say I have coping skills (dont model after me) I have creative avoidance skills.

I get exactly the same thing.....It's not that I don't want to talk to the person, it's just that it doesn't fit into my tightly scheduled (OCD) day.  If it's on a weekend, then I'm totally cool beacuse I don't schedule those days. Wierd!! I also hate it when peeps drop by uninvited AAARRGG!!! mad

experimenting doesn't mean that i take more than prescribed...its more about timing and when to take the doses.

Didnt have enough info before talking to doc about what seems to work and not on refill time sounds fine. If anything out of the ordinary happens maybe call doc sooner.
