I am 24 and have been dianosed with Social Anxiety about 4 months ago. I didnt have a good previous relationships and luckily I am now with someone who is very good to me and understands my anxiety, but I dont want to put our relationship under pressure because of it. I have been through counseliing from my GP which wasnt helpful, then I found hypnotherapy. I believe it has made me calmer but I am still terrified of being embarrassed in public, I go extremely red through the simplist of tasks. I cannot go shopping...supermarket or clothes shopping. I do everything online. I dont like going out for meals in open planned restaurants. My work has been a problem with attending meetings. I dont like the responsibility of being center of attention....even though I know I could be so good at my job. But that was short lived because they offered me part time work or redundancy, so I am now looking for another job and I have my first interview this week....I am scared that I am going to be asked difficult questions and if I dont know the answer or know that I am struggling I will go red and embarrassed and feel that I wont get the job because the interviewers will think I am not conifdent even though I know I would be good at the new job given the chance.
I am quite new to this sort of thing, so I would appreciate some advice and maybe an idea of what I can do to make my life easier and worry free....if there is such a thing?
