Social Anxiety/Phobia Support – What Is It Like To Live With Social Anxiety Disorder?

I’ve just found a web page that gives some good examples of what social anxiety is.

Here’s an excerpt:

A man finds it difficult to walk down the street because he’s self-conscious and feels that people are watching him from their windows. Worse, he may run into a person on the sidewalk and be forced to say hello to them. He’s not sure he can do that. His voice will catch, his “hello” will sound weak, and the other person will know he’s frightened. More than anything else, he doesn’t want anyone to know that he’s afraid. He keeps his eyes safely away from anyone else’s gaze and prays he can make it home without having to talk to anyone.”
