:hi: - Hi I'm Manfea

I'm a mid 30's guy so has just heard about this web site and joined. I have a long history of Depression and social phobia. However I believe the correct diagnosis should be Avoidance Personalty Disorder. So please if anyone can point me to any relevant threads or web pages i would be most grateful.

I have recently just got back on medication after having a run in with the DWP I'm rather typical AvPB person so please do not take it to heart if you email me and i don't/take a long time to reply it really is a case of it being me not you.

I live alone in the West Midlands and don't work due to being unable to stand being around others. However I was on the Pathways to work program until DWP decided nothing was wrong with me. Something that i only got reversed when I emailed the office of the sectary of state ( How poor is a system that the only way to get a mistake over turned is to go to a government minister)
