A quick review of myself

Severe social phobia for over 25 years, a history of behavioural therapy, xanax, paroxetine, psychoanalysis - symptoms: many and varied and some very strange.
(1) Unable to go through glass doors
(2) Unable to touch a glass
(3) Dread fo eating with others
(4) Unable to sign my name when others were watching
(5) Dread of speaking in public

The list goes on and on. For me social phobia was not one symptom but a cancerous spread of symptoms over the years. Quality of life at times reduced to zero, nothing to look forward to in life but fear, fear and more fear - and worst of all not a clue why this was happening to me.
