    Social Anxiety Disorder

    Has anyone else been diagnosed with social anxiety disorder, or after learning about and understanding the disorder, realized that you have it, without an official diagnosis?

    Make sure to include what type you are.

    Please vote in the poll, too, if I can figure out how to make it.

    not sure if my doctor ever really diagnosed me for it or not. But he has given me medication a couple of times that did nothing but made me sick.

    I have recently looked into it, and suspected that might have either social anxiety disorder or some other form of anxiety, but the thought of going to a professional to talk about it makes me want to fucking dry heave. My own stubbornness, and tendency to go into denial also are holding me back.

    That was my initial primary diagnosis. They put me on Lexapro. It got rid of my anxiety, but I still don't like being around most people. They'll probably end up changing my diagnosis, soon.

    Yes...being an extrovert with social anxiety is very frustrating...but xanax helps...

    I definitely have it - I've had it for as long as I can remember. It altered my life considerably. I'm now on an anti-depression/anti-depression combination drug and it's so incredibly wonderful not feel anxious about every single thing.

    If you have a lot of anxiety, I honestly don't think you can overcome it by will power alone. As I grew older, I was better an managing how much anxiety controlled my actions, but it is nowhere near how I feel like on medication. I highly recommend drugs if you suffer high levels of anxiety.

    I do. I used to be an outgoing social butterfly, but now I'm a hermit with social anxiety.

    I was diagnosed with it in high school and was on medication for it as well. But now, looking back on that, I don't think there was anything wrong with me, it's just how I am. On the whole, I "don't do people", which was viewed as bad by my parents, and my teachers, therefore something just had to be wrong with me in their eyes.

    Official diagnosis for the sole ESFP here (so far at least). This is one reason I couldn't accept I was an E. Mine is rather mild and isn't always present though I do have my harder moments as well.

    Drugs can be great (and bad) but for this I view them as a band-aid. I've heard hypnosis can work (not the stupid TV style but the actually proper trained professional way). There are a few things I'd like to tackle over a few sessions of hypnosis....once I can afford it, this being one. I've heard good things!
