Jobs For People With Social Anxiety?

After getting a call back for a very social job, my anticipatory anxiety went through the roof, to the point where I started hallucinating about being judged and harassed by people.

What are some decent jobs for people with social anxiety? I have a BA in English. Ideally I wouldn't have to go back to school.

Is data entry okay? I have been discouraged from doing that as one, according the people, it's very boring ...

My anxiety is so bad - PTSD or Social Anxiety?

It has gotten so bad that every time I’m talking to someone, I will experience panic attack symptoms. I start stuttering, sweating, increased heart rate (to the point where I feel like my chest is on fire) shaking and act really jittery.

Feeling conflicted, I want friends but I'm too introverted?

For as long as I can remember, I have always been very introverted and very shy and had difficulty making friends. Btw, though I know they might seem similar introversion and shyness are two very different things. Being introverted means you like spending time alone while being shy means you have difficulty approaching others. In my case, I am both, which is not a good combination when it comes to making friends and interacting with ...

Trouble with others

I'm 22 years old. Never had a girl, never had close friends except for one. My best friend that I know since I was child, he's gay but it is not a problem for me. Just that now my group of friends are at 90% gay.

Anyway I have always been socially dysfunctional; never had someone else who really care about me; or at least, I never felt to have a key role in a ...

Tips for overcoming difficulty speaking to services?

Hello, so today I had to chat with a technical support person online. It wasn't too bad, and I was able to get through it. I had to resist the urge to apologize profusely and take a few deep breaths, but I was able to. Still, I find it annoying and inconvenient that I had so much difficulty speaking to a technical support person. It's funny because I have no problem talking to others online, ...

Why is eye contact is so hard for us?

I have always had this issue. I don't like looking people in the eyes. I'm sure others here feel the same way too. So I thought recently why is that so hard? Well I personally think it's because we feel we're not good enough and don't want the shame of seeing their reaction if we say or do something they think is dumb. What do you think about this? I would like to get better ...

Negative experience with girls caused social anxiety

Hi, folks!
First of all, I´d like to thank all of you who are engaged with helping others to cope and overwhelm one of the worst things in life - social anxiety. You´re doing a great and noble job!
I´m here because I´d like to share my experience and probably search for a solution, considering that I´m 19 years old and I virtually need to take advantage of my life.
So, the thing is that ...
