Well where to start...

Hey everyone, I'm Kirstie & I'm 20, in my last year at University & work part-time at a bank.

I have been suffering from Social Anxiety probably from the age of 16/17, but only in the last few years have been diagnosed and told I wasn't going crazy!

Ive been prescribed Citalopram and have been on that for probably around a year maybe longer.

So, thats basically my story :)

Hi Kirstie and :welcome:

It is nice to meet you.

I too have social anxiety/phobia. It is not so bad now and I was never formally diagnosed. The very nature of this condition means that seeking treatment and support is made harder, because of the fear of being judged negatively.

Well done for surviving Uni into your third year. I start my second year tomorrow. I admire you for going to university and not letting the social anxiety/phobia stop your from achieving.

If you need anything, you only have to ask. It is a very safe and supportive environment here.

Take care

Companion

Thanks Companion. :) and good luck on your second year, you will be fine :D.

Just to say to everyone I have left a post in the Social Anxiety section of the forum, if you've got time to give it a read and pass on some advice it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Kirst
