Hi, so first off is this a real diagnosis? Please answer this. Ok so, I've never been comfortable in social situations. This started happening a little over 3 years ago. I'm 13 and i'll be 14 this year. Whenever I have to talk or even in the presence of social events where I have to take part, I sweat, shake, my stomach hurts, i can't focus, i get headaches. It's severe and terrible. Also, I've grown up without a father. Being social makes me panic and freak out. I need help. Do i have social anxiety disorder? If yes, how do I get help? Thanks Read More »
My mother is in her 50's and I am 26. I am in a long-term relationship with a man and we have an infant son together. My mother is divorced and I am the oldest of three. Due to the current economic climate, my boyfriend, my son and myself live with my mother. We pay half of everything on top of our own bills. We are not free loading.

Since my step-father left our family when I was 16, my mother has relied on me for a lot of things. I helped her get the guff to get a job and find a smaller house. She did not fight my step-dad in court for money or for custody of my brothers. She has a his Read More »

I was told by my old therapist that there's a possibility that I could have social anxiety disorder. I wasn't all too sure about that because I've never had a panic attack before. When I see the word ''anxiety'', I automatically think panic attacks. I know that I'm socially inept and awkward, but I was just wondering if it is possible to have S.A.D and not have panic attacks?

Is it Generalized Anxiety Disorder? Is it depression? Is it Social Anxiety Disorder? Or is it that I just think too much?
I don’t know.

It’s been more than a year when I am afraid of almost everything I do. I’ve become so self-conscious that I think what I do is always wrong and I’m giving people a reason to laugh at me. It wasn’t the same a few years back. I did not experience such fear before like I do now. Now, I become afraid when I get up in the morning as to how my day will go in school- obviously bad, and then I think that I won’t do anything that would make people mock at me. Th Read More »
