Does anyone know any alternatives ways to cope with Social Anxiety? anything but meds
my Social Anxiety has gotten so bad that I’ve began to live in isolation & avoid people at all costs… not good
I always get that feeling everyone in the world is staring a hole in me when I get out somewhere… when I know they’re not
You might find CBT helpful
I recommend buying a book
The feel good handbook is a good one
take deep breaths on social situations…why u dont want to take meds.?
Thanks! I’ll look into that
Thanks for the tip. I’ve been trying that, it only works in certain situations.
I try to stay away from meds, most of them are just made to make pharm. companies big bucks
did u tried escitalopram(ssri-antidepressant)…they are very good.
I struggle with this also, and I rarely go out. I haven’t found a satisfactory answer. In fact I think my med, abilify, makes it worse.
