Still Shy At Your Age? I Don't Believe It!

Posted 8th March 2015 at 14:06 by indigo777

Why is it that the social anxiety forums are so youth orientated? One female poster said she felt too old at 30 to use the forum and it often feels like I am entering a student forum and feel embarrassed mentioning my age. Not surprising when there is special sub-forum for the over 30's. Itís the same on blogs or facebook groups with social anxiety being almost always spoken to as if from the point of view of a teenager or someone in their early twenties. Yet there are many people aged 40+ with...

It's so hard to lay down in all of this

[B][I]But still the warmth flows through me
And I sense you know me well
No luck, no golden chances
No mitigating circumstances now
It's only common sense
[SIZE="3"]There are no accidents around here[/SIZE][/I][/B]

I think a lot of advice is from people who assume that everyone is in exactly the same boat as them just because they all have anxiety when of course everyone is very different and often has vastly different levels of anxiety...

In The Mood

[B][I]Getting hard to believe in anything at all
But Fear.[/I][/B]

I have started to take some pills called 5 HTP. They came from America and took 10 weeks to arrive which makes them sound dodgy. They are supposed to improve moods and have some good reviews although after 4 days I have noticed nothing so far. Perhaps you need to take 10 a day instead of one but they advised you to start slowly and build up so I'll wait and see. Some days my moods could be appallingly bad, so...

[B]so hard to move on
still loving what's gone[/B]

I went to the cemetery again this afternoon as I did last Christmas day. Its quite surprising how many people do.

More random cobblers

[B][I]But I still haven't found what I'm looking for[/I][/B]

I remember being young and doing things and blushing and stuttering and feeling like a fool so I stopped doing things. Yes, thats basically why people become avoidant and are still SA into their forties. I remember teachers picking on me to read aloud in class to apparently encourage me and help me as I was shy. So I blushed and stuttered and the other kids took the piss out of me so I became worse and even shyer and even...
