I'm new to this.

I am 41 and I think since adolescence i have suffered from social anxiety. I never thought much about it and kind of lived my life not taking risks and never being sure of myself. In my mid twenties I had to take a psychological test for a job, and I got called back in to speak with a psychiatrist as they said I tested for dysthymia. I pretty much lied my way through to get the job but I think since maybe my late 30s, l feel more like a zombie just floating through life, going through motions but not really enjoying life. I also have issues speaking my mind in social situations. It has made relationships hard (I didn't have my first real relationship until 36) as I am accused of not opening up. I went to a counselor a couple of years ago but I don't think I got much out of it. Anyways just trying to see how other people cope.
