Introvert with social anxiety

Hey all, I'm new here! So as the title suggests, I'm an introvert (INFJ on the MBTI test) with social anxiety. (I have generalized anxiety and it carries over into every aspect of my life.)

Not just because of the anxiety, but because I'm drained by too much social interaction ...

Inability to make relations with my students

Hi, I am 29 years old. I am working as a teacher in a college for last 4 years. I never thought of having teaching as profession. I used to suffer from stage fear.

Its only after ...

Fear of communicating on the phone affecting work


I could really do with some advice on this.

I have severe social phobia (I have severe anxiety: PTSD-like symptoms) which I've only recently learned is almost definitely due in part to undiagnosed high functioning autism, but I do not currently have a diagnosis. SPeaking on the phone has always caused me extreme anxiety and distress because of my difficultlies with communication.

Despite being very unwell and isolated and trying very hard to get ...

Strong Desire to Fortify Everything?

As in protect myself from the outside world. I have Aspergers and OCD which causes me to fixate on things and desire unusual protection or engage in weird rituals but I have just now realized how I've been driven insane by this desire to protect myself utterly. I never leave the house, I practically imprinted on my bedroom, I literally don't breathe outside air. I have back aches and severe fatigue which I believe are ...

I am a 25 year old Male. I used to be a funny person and probably the most entertaining person in every group as there were a lot of groups who wanted me to be with them. I was a goofy person and never really felt bad when someone bullied me, infact I used to love it.

All of a sudden one day during a group event while people were trying to make fun of ...

Social anxiety only with dating or going out drinking?

I've never seen a therapist so I haven't been diagnosed with anything so I'm not supposed to say I have anxiety because people who've been diagnosed get offended. But I have researched it a lot and it describes me perfectly so I think I have anxiety, more so social anxiety. I've always been shy but instead of growing out of it I think I've gotten worse. I used to go out with my friends every ...
