hi, i'm new to daily strength and i'm hoping to get some answers. normally i prefer to pretend i'm fine but it's getting to the point where i need a little help =/ i'm only seventeen years old and i have horrible social anxiety. i haven't always had it though. i am also a recovering meth addict and ever since i have been in recovery my anxiety has been unbearable. I want to be young and go out and do things with my friends but i can't. i always make up excuses or when i try to go i have such bad panic attacks and i get so sick that it's almost more like torture. i've tried some pills but they don't even take the edge off for me. i just want this to go away or at least someway to control it better.
