> After it is done, there is obviously a huge sense of relief. But in addition to that, there is a slight sense of accomplishment. A slight boost in confidence. So the next time around, it will still be terrifying, but a tad less terrifying than the time before. Over time with these repeated purposeful exposures, symptoms can be cut in half, and things can be much more tolerable, and we can at least have some control over the feelings, even though we can't make them go away by will.
> Medications that do the job, awesome if you find the right one. But even with the wrong one or an unsatisfactory one, do not wait for a cure to begin curing oneself. Force yourself into those uncomfortable situations and retrain. It really works. I agree, it aint easy, but whoever said life was. It does however make a better and stronger person out of you, a person less controlled by the invisible illness, a person who says to the social phobia monster, "I am the boss of you, you are not the boss of me."

Sorry, this is simply false for some people.
