Welcome to Healing Well
I did suffer from social anxiety and still do in a small way not as bad as I use to be
I found doing Cognitive behaviour
therapy and just finally going back out inot the town forming a " Teens Night" ( where they al meet and talk orplay music ) has helped me our trmendously
Also this yr I played Santa for a few days handing out Christmas hampers with food and toys to the needy thru Salvation Army
I wont lie I still get those times where all lights are out and I dont want ppl coming here
actually my family and friends KNOW to call ahead NOT just drop by
As well even though I am on here talking to ppl I have not met ( am meeting some ) had also a great impact on my social A/P
Christmas is very hard for many so know you are not alone in this ............
There is such support and empathy on this and the great ppl here really do know what you are going thru or where you have been or eevn going to

ARe you on any type of fast asting med to help with the SSRI;s sometimes it works better but that depends on person
