Spotlight: Social Anxiety

by Terry Gault

If you avoid social situations due to anxiety, you may have Social Anxiety Disorder.   Read on – this is a useful article by the Chicago Tribune.

It’s natural to feel some nervousness in certain social situations, such as talking in front of others, confronting a problem with someone or being among strangers. But social anxiety disorder goes beyond this, causing an excessive anxiety or fear of activities and situations in which you believe that others are watching you or judging you. In addition, you may fear that you’ll embarrass or humiliate yourself.

    Thanks for sharing this article by the Chicago tribune… I have been looking for another few good sources on social anxiety and I think this article has hit right on the nose.

    Often times people don’t realize that the feelings they are having are completely normal and its important to get this in the public spotlight.

    Thanks again for sharing this article it was exactly what I was looking for… now to find a few more 🙂
