You Are Not Alone In Your Anxiety

Jan 17, 2008
Going to the shopping mall may seem easy to you and me, but for someone who suffers with a social phobia it can quickly become so overwhelming that the trip ruins their whole week. A person who suffers with social anxiety may find the shopping mall to be no problem but they may struggle to eat in a crowded restaurant, different people find different situations cause anxiety.

All anxiety disorders are not equal, different people find different things cause them to have anxiety attacks. Men will find different situations cause their anxiety disorder to come to the fore than women do.

People with social anxiety fear that they will make mistakes that everyone will notice, they fear that they are always going to be judged by others, they have the fear of being embarrassed or humiliated by themselves in front of others, they think that everyone's attention is on them, and they think that other people are more capable of doing something in the same situation.

In situations that cause fear, people who have social anxiety disorder will feel intense anxiety. The anxiety they feel may lead to trembling, pounding heart, blushing, nausea, and sweating. For many having this anxiety will turn into a panic attack.

These symptoms of anxiety can often lead to embarrassment for the person that has social anxiety. Some people that have social anxiety disorder are comfortable being only with close family and friends. Others people with social anxiety only fear certain social situations. Some people become anxious when they are dealing with people in higher positions such as their boss.

When you go to pull a plaster off , the time you spend thinking about how much it will hurt seems to make you more anxious than the actual removal of the plaster itself. That is just how it feels when a social anxiety sufferer knows they will have to use a public rest room or public telephone.

Many more women than men suffer with social anxiety disorder, possibly because they feel extra pressure to be perfect in social situations, but no one seems to really know. It is not uncommon for people to have social anxieties, there are certainly hundreds of thousands if not millions of people who suffer with it to various degrees in America alone.

If you have any form of anxiety it is very easy to have your life taken over by it. Our social interactions are what help us to find a partner, friends and the relationships formed outside of the home make up a big part of peoples happiness.
