Welcome to Healthcaremagic, One of the most helpful things you can do to overcome social anxiety disorder, or social phobia, is to face the social situations you fear rather than avoid them. Avoidance keeps social anxiety disorder going.

Avoidance leads to more problems

While avoiding nerve-wracking situations may help you feel better in the short term, it prevents you from becoming more comfortable in social situations and learning how to cope. In fact, the more you avoid a feared social situation, the more frightening it becomes.

Avoidance may also prevent you from doing things you’d like to do or reaching certain goals. For example, a fear of speaking up may prevent you from sharing your ideas at work, standing out in the classroom, or making new friends.

Challenging social anxiety one step at a time

While it may seem impossible to overcome a feared social situation, you can do it by taking it one small step at a time. The key is to start with a situation that you can handle and gradually work your way up to more challenging situations, building your confidence and coping skills as you move up the “anxiety ladder.”

For example, if socializing with strangers makes you anxious, you might start by accompanying an outgoing friend to a party. Once you’re comfortable with that step, you might try introducing yourself to one new person, and so on.

I wish it helps you

Hi !

Take heart. These are not any signs of Tb or HIV etc. These could be a result of some mental stres that you have been going through for sometime. Try to speak to a couseller who will be able to help you get out of the same. You can cheer up and feel totally normal again. at teh most you may need to take some mediication wich will help your state of mind to be more steady and chearful. There are many effective medicines availble today. Seek help from aprofessional and you would be fine soon.

Take care
