I found your analysis of social phobia being somewhere in the psychotic spectrum very interesting. I have a form of BDD which seems like the extreme social anxiety that you describe--with its attendant paranoia. In my case I assume that unless I look as perfect as I can, I'm being rejected for my looks and, believe me, I'm looking for slights. BDD is classified as being related to OCD, but my form seems more like SA. I've so far resisted my psychiatrist's attempts to have me try one of the atypicals despite his assurances that the side effect profiles are similar to SSRI's(that may say more about SSRI's than the atypicals). It's a line that I'm very reluctant to cross. SSRI's have provided me a fair amount of relief, but not complete by any means.
