Social Anxiety Disorder

:iconkimikitn:
kimikitn Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2012
Hello, I have not been diagnosed with SAD (Social Anxiety Disorder), however I heard my psychology professor talking about it and I went out on my own and did more research about it. It seems to fit me. So I went up to my psychology professor and talked to him about it and I end up crying talking about painful social experiences of mine. So he gave me these places that can help me with my anxiety problems.


Examples of how I feel sometimes:
When there are parties for family and relatives. I know all of them since I was little, but I could never be close with them. Sometimes I feel this tension inside of me and I don't want to talk to any of them. I start making up stories in my head and feel hurt. I know it's weird.

Another example:
I always feel negative about myself. Even if I do good at work, I always feel like people are thinking bad about me and such. I know I am surrounded by people who care about me, but I feel bad about myself.


Advice?

Also, you can get over such fears in lucid dreams. Then you don't have to be scared because it's just a dream and you can practise your social skills/getting less scared. :)

The best tip I can give: Look around you. Not in your head, in your head is a dark place, but outside it's much better. I also have social phobia. I know what's like. This helped me.

I'm trying my best to look outside of my head. It hurts a lot being stuck in my head a lot.

Get professional help. Random people on an art forum can't help you.
