I've been depressed basically my whole life. I didn't even know I had it untill a friend of mine who was also depressed told me about antidepressents and how it has helped him. Now im on prozac and wellbutrin and I feel like a different person. My problem is that for most of my life I've had no interest in socializing because of depression. But now I want to make new friends and meet new people. Its so hard for me though, I've some force just paralyzing me when I'm talking or interacting with someone. It would make my mind go blank and my words stutter. I would be ok with my friends but for some weird reason I can't talk to anyone else. My doc wants me to "try" harder, apparently he doesnt know how serious it is. But if "trying" harder doesnt work for me he has agreed to put me on benzos. I know there are addiction potential and withdrawals from benzos, but I'm willing to sacrifice a few months of withdrawals for a chance to be myself. Does anyone here take benzos for social anxiety and what kind of a effect does it have? Does it get rid of that paralyzing feeling anxiety brings? Please tell me your experiences and knowledge with benzos, I searched the web for peoples experiences but I want to hear from you people.
