Re: Question About Social Anxiety
I'm not a doctor but i'd say you have social anxiety when you want to socialise but the fear of doing so stops you. Lots of people feel shy and aren't extroverted but still go to parties and things - myself for example. I hate going to parties but i wouldn't let my shyness stop me going because I know that I 'should' socialise and sometimes I actually enjoy myself! If your shyness is so extreme that it stops you talking to people or socialising then i would be starting to think it might be something more than shyness.
