Among my many problems, I have about been almost in total isolation every night for 9 years. I have social anxiety disorder, no friends , I do go to a health club, had a few dates, but overall can't get myself to get out after 5pm. Then the next day, my self esteem plummets further and further from lack of contact with any friends. I see pp on this who are so positive - I am afraid I have never been that way. Any suggestions are appreciated !
