Just wanted to introduce myself. I've been dealing with social anxiety pretty much my entire life. It's been so debilitating that I find myself a year away from 40 having no friends. I am literally a nervous wreck when I am around others. On top of my social anxiety, I suffer from the occasional psychosis and have had to deal with the belief that strangers are following and monitoring me, which makes me even more fearful of others. I've been put on countless medications and tried CBT several times without much success. I am so desperate to get out of this never endless cycle of sadness and loneliness.
