Welcome, sure you will find this site helpful and supportive.
Social anxiety sure can reek havoc in your life. Your intrusive thoughts
can be debilitating only if you let them. Do what makes you happy and
don't let anxiety run your life. Everything you want isn't out of reach,
it is only out of reach if you choose it to be. Anxiety is curable.
I was diagnosed with social anxiety and know the feeling of not being
able to do the things I want to. I accepted my anxiety, now I do what
I choose to do regardless of the emotions I feel. I ignore the emotions
because I realize they are false and not true emotions.
A quote I read: I am responsible for what I see. I choose the emotions
