Hello. I'm a 40 year old woman and have had social anxiety for most of my life. It has gotten worse over the years although I still work and function to a degree. I am a single mom. I hate talking to or meeting people because I feel like i'm awkward and unable to interact like a normal person would.
My ten year old daughter has been showing signs of social anxiety and it scares me to death because I don't want for her to have to live that life. I want her to love herself and accept herself but I'm not sure how to help her. I always tell her shes wonderful in every way but it doesn't seem to help
