Hi everyone, this is my first post. A little bit of back story, I've been diagnosed with add anxiety and depression. I started a cocktail of meds a few months back. Specifically rexulti,Prozac, and lamictal. For about two months things seemed to be going great I was happier than I'd been in years and thought I was making progress on my social anxiety. One event that happened was the ending of two friendships. After this I started drinking and cutting myself to punish myself for the end of the friendship which I perceived to be my fault. From there things Piled on. I started to constantly think about how ashamed I was of my social anxiety and how much of a social mess up I was and drinking and cutting became somewhat of a habit. I showed up to a meeting at work hungover and with hidden scars beneath me. This all went on until today after a meeting with my psychiatrist. She told me that my behavior was reminiscent of the beginning stages of borderline personality disorder. And from this point on I realized I had to put a stop to this before I want full borderline. So I told me mom everything and almost got admitted to a hospital . I am asking anyone the following. How do you deal with social anxiety? and how do you cope with social anxiety? Any tips would be appreciated especially regarding coping with it besides drugs, cutting, or alcohol.
