I just wanted to add something else. I also
think that it is hurting my career. I think
that I am not getting ahead because of it even
though I know that I am intelligent and competent. It is hurting my chances for new
opportunities. I am just not myself sometimes
and I feel that I come off looking stupid,
weak and incompetent. I feel that all of this
stemmed from my past. I have had a lot of negative relationships throughout my life and
this could be the result. I don't know how
to change it. I am against going on medication
because of the side affects. I am currently not going to a counselor. Does anyone know of
any support groups.


: I have a problem. I think that I suffer from a
: social anxiety disorder. To make matters worse, I
: work in a large office atmosphere.(which doesn't help)
: There are always many people around and it makes me
: nervous. My boss even told me in a roundabout way
: that my social skills are lacking. I know this. How
: do I explain to him how I feel. I feel if I tell
: him what's really going on he will think that I am crazy. Many people begin stereotyping you once you admit to having this type of problem. There is such
: a stigma attached. Many people in that place already treat me like I'm some kind of freak. Does
: anyone else have this problem?
