New to the forum

Hi, I am new to this site. Just as a introduction ,basically from a young age i have always suffered from what i understand now to be forms of social anxiety. I'm 35 now and have just recently and regrettable left a new job , due to letting this awful condition get the better of me, but it has prompted me to get all help I can , hence joining this site to hopefully talk and be able to relate to people living and dealing with anxiety x

  • Hello. Welcome.

    All is friendly here. I suppose I too have a bit of the social anxiety - but only because I worry about being sick in front of people (like every five minutes, without even feeling sick). I guess everyone has some degree of difficulty with socialising - it's just that some of us have more problems than others ;)
