Hello everyone! I'm new here


First of all I want to say a little bit about myself. I'm not a native English speaker and I'm still in highschool.

In this forum I see a lot of older people. And it kinda makes me feel a little bit nervous. But I'm also happy because I can learn a lot from someone who's more experienced.

I have been feeling so lonely because I feel like I'm the only person in this world experiencing social anxiety and there is no one that can understand me. But after discovering this forum makes me feel better seeing there's a lot people like me.

I'm glad I discovered such a great forum.

Hey ReivenVI, welcome to SAS.

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.

Welcome. As you can see from all the people on here you are not the only one suffering from social anxiety. So how does SA affect you in your day to day school life?

It's especially really hard when I got a group assignment with the people I'm not close to or when the teacher asked me to perform alone in front of the class

That was the hard part for me back in high school. I had panic attacks every time I had to give a speech in front of class. Started shaking and sweating and face turning red. It was awful. Would skip class to avoid it. Have you talked to a DR. or therapist? Tell your parents about your issues and hopefully they will help you out. It wont get better on its own. Message me if you got any more questions

Welcome! Aweee My baby sister is in high school and she also deals with social anxiety. When I was in high school I dealt with it too (obviously still do). An incredibly isolating experience but not impossible to get through.
