Hi All

my name is Christine and I have suffered with anxiety issues for all of my adult life, predominantly social anxiety. I work as a community nurse 3 days per week, but would dearly love to form friendships with others who live with social anxiety and want to share ways of overcoming this distressing problem.
My idea is that of a small group of like minded empathic, friendly, and non judgemental individuals that get together for social days/evenings out. Suggestions might include going out for lunch/walking etc and sharing tips and providing mutual support to each other.
I live in the Hull, Beverley area of East Yorkshire. Please, i woul be delighted if you would contact myself via this site.

PS Lets make 2015 the year when we gain control of this problem!! xxx

I'm a bit too far away to attend this, but am wishing you good luck in your venture and I hope that you find like-minded people to start so socialise with.(y)

Also wanted to add that i've found meditation/spiritual groups to be quite non-judgemental and supportive too. It's helped me a lot from my late teens (when I was extremely socially anxious) to be involved in these kinds of activities.

Thankyou Elle-X for your reply. So far had no response, probably most people live too far away, but so kind of you to reply xxx
