Social anxiety disorder,I need help

Ok well I am always really nervous no matter what i do. even talking to my closest friends i get nervous. when im in big groups of people i lock up and cant talk. at parties, in class i can never do anything because i am always so nervous. i read alot of things about social anxiety disorder and all the symptoms seem like its what i have. im 19 now, but when i was 16-17 i used to throw up while on my way to see my girlfriend and even on the phone with her. i cant meet people now because usually i just stay home since i get so worked up and worried about going out. and i cant use public bathrooms. i need help but im not really sure what to do

Happens when you use the computer/internet too much.

Are you a gamer/nerd? Try limiting your time on the computer, go spend some time outdoors and just hanging out with your friends. The problem is you think they expect something from you, when they really don't. They just want to be your friend and have someone to talk to - even if you aren't that smart and are nervous of saying something stupid, that's fine just realize no one is perfect.

I think I was like this too when I was younger. I played Runescape all day and felt nervous when talking to people cuz of those awkward silences where I didn't know what to say. After a few years of college and a better education, small talk comes more easily. Also, make sure you stay up to date with news and shit and you will have plenty to talk about. You just gotta get involved with something and do your best to enjoy it.
