Hey guys. My SzA symptoms are relatively under control. For that, I am very happy.
The biggest issue I’ve been dealing with now is social anxiety. It’s tough for me to work up the gumption to leave the house and when I do, it can be hard for me to interact with others. I take vistaril and it doesn’t help with the anxiety. I have tried propranolol in the past as well, but it didn’t really work either.
I’ve been working with my therapist to overcome this social anxiety. He wants me to get out more and calls it “expanding my comfort zone”. Unfortunately, the anxiety is still sticking around and ultimately feels like it’s limiting me in life.
I’m curious, what (if anything) has helped your social anxiety? I noticed it seems like a lot of you guys also deal with social anxiety.
