I was diagnosed with Social Phobia 6 years ago now. I'm 37 years old, only recently been researching about this condition on the internet, and I definitely have social phobia, wish I had researched about this sooner and went to the doctor sooner instead of waiting this long!. I scored 91% and was being a little conservative on the questions!. I don't go out anywhere other than food shopping and walks, I have avoided family situations all my life and am now finding it impossible to get a job since I was diagnosed. I was like this since I can remember, even from my school days. I have used drugs since I was 16, as I found the gave me confidence but since I stopped using drugs 6 years ago, my head is even worse for using. I really want to achieve something with my life, but it is so hard to get going.
