In reply to Anyone here with severe social anxiety employed?, posted by fuzzymind on December 9, 2002, at 2:27:35
I am a recovered social phobic, 44(f), the worst years were definately college, where i was so isolated, and would hide and cry in my private room and only venture out eyes cast down to class. it was terrible.(I abused alcohol for over 20 years to self medicate myself) Thanks to the meds i'm on (perphenazine, prozac, welbutrin, buspar) i no longer fear being in the public, and can even speak out in groups now!!!!
however because of a severe depression last year, i become disabled and on social security disability. That is also an option you could look into. Take care
