It is so frustrating and debilitating sometimes. I have to avoid possible public speaking engagements whenever possible. I also have social anxiety. I am somewhat quiet and introverted. My wife is the opposite. I get jealous and envyous when we are out somewhere and she is able to laugh and smile and I count the minutes till we can leave and go home to my safe, secure, castle.
