I think I have social anxiety as I avoid any situation where there is a social group if I can...cant always avoid them though. I attend work funtions that are mandatory, but all others I retreat from. It has gotten worse in the last 3 years. I am fine on my own to go out...I shop and prefer to work-out alone. I struggle with my emotions and avoid people I dont know well. I take a very long time making a friend. I am on propanolol for a tremor and have been for many years now but I still have heart palpitations. I want to be able to have frienships. Others have been reaching out to me lately but I find it so difficult to feel anything but anxious about spending time with them. I think this is anxiety and I have come here to read and hopefully get some insight on living with this. I was told recently that Prozac works well but I see Anti-Anxiety drugs could help too. Can I get some advice on what works best for some? Do all antidepressants give you nightmares? I have enough of those already..I hope I can find a way to feel better as some have on this site. Thanks for such support on DS......always much appreciated and great site!
