Hi Everyone,

I've been on the hunt for a good forum as I struggle with social anxiety and it can feel especially depleting at work as well as something I dread. My mind latches onto each social interaction at times and I therefore grade myself on how well these interactions go. Work meetings at the end of the week can seem treacherous and I often wish I could keep up a better facade but it doesn't seem to happen whether a blush comes on or I can't seem to get the right words out.

I'd love to interact with others who experience the same or different things relative to social anxiety. I also have a research paper I am working on that talks about social anxiety and would love to find someone to interview on their experience whether that be via email or a zoom call. This would be pretty informal and just a few questions.

It's good to be here,

Sheena

Hello Sheena,

:welcome: to the forum. I can relate in that I also judge every performance. But in my head it never turns out good. There is always something I could have done in another way or said better.

I am sure lots of people can relate to what you are saying. Good luck on your paper!
