I have suffered from social anixety for over 10 years. Its especially worse at work and I can feel really on edge and uncomfortable with people. My confidence really takes a knock on a regular basis. I go red at a drop of a hat when talking to people and can feel my heart beating fast and my mind goes blank.
Has anyone got over this? I have tried the mater hospital course while it was good the effects wear off. Im on the waiting list for a CBT therapist and am currently going to a psychotherapist. I dont feel any better yet and have been going to him for a bout 6 months.
Any positive stories out there? Was thinking of trying toast masters, NLP along with the CBT. Really want to get rid of this, its controlling my life and my career.
Im open to any suggestions, would like to try medidation again also, feel I need something to calm myself down. Find it very hard to switch off my mind.
