Yes! I have social anxiety.

I'm sometimes able to enjoy a group activity if I can feel included, but all former friends are married, I'm not, and I feel like an outcast.

I live in the UK.

I would imagine New York has a number of Kosher events, Jewish cultural centres and events run by Chabad.

Social anxiety is the fear of social situations that involve interaction with other people. You could say social anxiety is the fear and anxiety of being negatively judged and evaluated by other people. It is a pervasive disorder and causes anxiety and fear in most all areas of a person's life.

​I believe, that for me, my suffering and hiding was what made me depressed. It also dragged me to porn, for a sort of relief.
Due to my illness, I don't trust people, and I will have it very hard  to get helped. Meanwhile my years are going by with hidden tears.

Would love to hear from people who were struggling with social phobia and managed to cure themselves. 

When I am sad, or when I feel I can't do, or go to places I want to go, then is when I usually fall.

I hope this thread will give some hope for anyone struggling in this area.

Sometimes I ask myself, if my phobias are due to my watching porn, or is my watching porn due to my phobias???

I've actually struggled greatly in this area. Got better. Still a way to go. I can identify with abuse as a child etc. Without professional help I wouldn't get anywhere. Cost what it may, you wont have a life without it. Staying closed within yourself will just keep you there - inside yourself. You need an outside force to effect some change. This is THE first step. Period.

Hello I can relate to social anxiety on many levels as well as the abuse I'm trying to make a forum for just people who got abuse but have no idea  I'm not gonna say I'm a survivor but as time did go and I put on a bull confidence it actually merged into something though the sweat still remains by social gatherings!!!
