> Agreed. I have SP and it has nothing to do with performance anxiety - personally I would feel less anxiety standing to give a spech anywhere, than I do when crossing the street. SP is about not going to class because you can't stand the microsecond everyone's eyes will be on you as you walk into class late. It's about not being able to say Good Evening to your neighbour simply from the fear of the awkwardness. CBT combined with meds is the only treatment for it. Some people, including me, have no conscious ability to fight SP.

For the "all eyes on me" aspect of social phobia, I have found that low dose atypical APs work very well, better even than Nardil. For me the Nardil worked pretty well for one on one interactions, but not so much with the feelings of being looked at and/or evaluated by others who you are NOT conversing with at the time.
