When I was about 11 or 12 and this was in the early 70s, I began to experience symptoms of what is now called social phobia. Back then there was no term for this and no medication like Paxil or anything. So it got worse and I just fucking suffered through it. All through jr high and high school. It was HELL!!! I only wish that there had been medication back then that I couldve taken or that there was some medical definition so it couldve been treated. When I went to college I started seeing a psychoanalyst/psychiatrist to work it out. I was fortunate to be able to work it out via therapy and some xanax :). It was hard work but I forced myself to work it out and I did. It almost makes me agree that if people work it out themselves rather than relying on medication that it makes them better, stronger people but on the other hand I think that not everyone can do that and that why should people suffer when they could improve thier quality of life with medication?
