For the past 8 years I have struggled with social anxiety.
I Am 27 years old and have a fiancé and daughter who is 3 years old.
I struggle with social anxiety, I have not spoke to friends in a few years used to avoid all phone calls and not reply to text messages, i avoid people I know if I seen them while I am out, I start to get very anxious and panic if out on my local area, I do not feel like this if I am away from my local area and i do not know anyone. I drive out of town to get my hair cut, I go to a supermarket in a different town ( tell my parter I prefer it and it is bigger) I have become a bit of a loner by feeling this way and believe I have dragged my fiancé down with me, I used to have many friend and be out a lot, the social anxiety does not affect me at work. And at work is when i feel most comftable,
I now want seek help to stop this from taking over and controlling my life.
