: Hello, I am extremely shy, and all my life has been horrible, are there any herbs or something so I wont be stupid like this anymore? Also are there herbs for stupid people like me to help with memory problems and deppression and being sad please? Can't go to doctors or get medications cause parents dont believe in that, natural bottled pills from like a nearby drug store is all I can get. Please help my entire life is horrible and I really need to be normal please help me.

First of all, shyness is not a bad thing. I am terribly shy as well. To the point that I was unable to even talk to people that I didn't know personally. (ie, new coworkers, boss's, even peers). The only way I was able to help myself was to just jump in with both feet. First, ask yourself-what are you so afraid of? Low self esteem? Rejection? Saying something stupid? You just have to ignore all those stupid voices in the back of your head that are making you second guess yourself. You are not stupid, you are attractive, and what ever position you are in (work, school, friends, family) you have a purpose and you are there for a reason. So you have to make the best of it. You don't want life to pass you by because you we're too afraid to speak up. Don't worry about what other people think of you. As far as medications for it. I don't know of any. There are meds out there for Anxiety/Fear of socializing. There is a study going on in Seattle that they advertise all the time. Therefor, I know they are working on something to help it.
Sorry if I didn't answer your question. I just felt I needed to share my thought on this.
