Hello, I’m Todd and I’m fairly certain that I have Social Anxiety Disorder. I’ve lived with the anxiety of being around others in a social setting. I seem to come unraveled and haven’t been able to get myself together. I’ve lost a good job as a Case Manager for a transitional home, and now I’m about to lose everything I’ve worked hard to get. It’s been hard to even leave my apartment when I know I’ll be in any kind of social setting. Anxiety and panic strike me without discrimination. Any advice would be beneficial. I have requested an appt with a cognitive behavioral therapist, but I’m reaching out and trying to overcome the gut wrenching fear I have. I think this is a step in the right direction for I can’t live like this anymore.
