Hello, I'm 39 and struggling with severe anxiety. I've had it since I was younger and it has only gotten worse. I get anxious just going to the store, at work, driving, meeting new people. I don't know how to be social and will just stay quiet, I'm not trying to be rude, It's like my mind clears and I don't know what to say. I have met people and ask questions about them but they never ask questions about me. It seems like maybe we could be friends and then they don't really conversate with me again. I'm always thinking people don't like me, maybe because I'm shy, I don't know. I don't have any friends, except my dog, kind of sad. No family, except my dad, but we're not close. I have 2 kids, but I hide my feeling from them. I think my older son has the same social issues as me, he won't even leave the house. I want to help fix my social anxieties so I can help him. I'm not taking any medications, can't afford insurance. If anyone has an suggestions to help with anxiety. Thank you.
