Now that i look back, i think i see soxial anixety a lot when i first started work and meeting new people everyday, when i was about 22. the more new people i met that i was able to relate with the better i became socially.
I remember my first ever job interview, i was so embarassed , after the usual hellos, i was asked " what can do you? " and my brain just simply stoped thinking i was speechles for some reason... and i said " i can do some things ... errrr etc " then the interviewer said " hmm i see etc " i was so embarrased not sure why the words stoped comming out , i felt very shy etc.
Also my female encounters were always tough, i wasn't used to speaking with women and if i was invited into a social gathering, and a certain women was nice or friendly to me i felt a sudden blush and as if i have a crush on her , it was very wierd, the more i became sociable with women the more normal i felt around them.
in short, i believe social anxiety is very much treatable.. you can get over it with expirience and TRYING more hehe. don't ever give up or think you can't do it.
