This

If you had social anxiety how could you even bare to go to a group? If I had to go to group my heart would be racing so hard I would probably have a panic attack. Your social anxiety must be quite mild.

Social anxiety is now a meme disorder, like being bipolar or having depression. It's fashionable to identify as someone who suffers from it, so support groups are mostly going to be circlejerks.

it doesn't matter. wanting to start a relationship is a choice and kind of a serious deal and the time where it happens is completely up to you and women are fucking afraid of approaching relationships anyway. so it's not like something you have a guarantee for getting at a certain point in your life.

a trigger is something that causes you to panic, like seeing girls laughing while looking at you or something like that

Yes.

My parents just crushed me once again. The conversation went something like this:

>Parents talk about my successful elder brother who studies in the US
>they talk about a girl he has been seeing
>Someone gave her knockout-drops on new year's eve and my brother regrets that he didn't stop her from going with that guy
>My mom says she texted him saying that girl should have been going with my brother, then this wouldn't have happened
>She adds "I didn't write "nothing" would've happened because I didn't want to imply he can't score"

Honestly, this sounds no different than /r9k/.

Everyone here claims to have social anxiety, yet I rarely (if ever) hear of anyone who is completely dependent on their family because they're too afraid to go outside, let alone get a job or an apartment.

No one cares about people with real social anxiety. We're pathetic and uncommon and completely hopeless.
>>
>>25946787
I've been posting about having it for years and everybody here was insulting me for it. It's true that there are very very few people with real anxiety issues in the world.

I remember a few years ago posting about how I was afraid to buy a car, and people were berating me and couldn't understand it. Even though I had the money, I didn't know what I was supposed to do with it, and if I'd have to talk to bank people, etc.
It makes me feel very pessimistic about how much a support group would help, since it seems like there aren't a whole lot of people who are actually like me.
>>
>>25946787
It's not a competition. Take off the victim hat.
>>
>>25942257
if you're in a support group or even getting therapy at all then your social anxiety isn't bad at all, and you should just stop being such fucking pussy.

Because you think anxiety is binary. It's not. It's not "you have it or you don't". It's a spectrum. But you love playing the victim and anyone who isn't as bad-off as you is just pretending or faking it.

Bless you, OP. My psychiatrist has been trying to convince me to go to one and I was on the fence because I was worried it would be full of "le so quirky" people who treat mental illnesses like fashion accessories, and I would be the only one there with actual problems. Now I see I was right. If you've got a fucking fiance, how fucking dare you show up to a support group for SA? Clearly it's not affecting you at all.

Fuck normies. I can't fucking go outside, have no friends at all, and am so self- conscious that I think people are judging the way my shadow looks on the ground, and some fuckbag shows up with a good job and a fiance and has the fucking gall to claim he's got a problem with SA?

Honest to God we need another Biblical flood.

OF course everyone feels some social anxiety sometimes, but how many people are so affected by it to the point where they become dysfunctional? A very, very small number. Maybe you can understand why people who are legitimately affected by it would be fucking pissed off at others who aren't seriously affected by it at all, yet claim they have it to seem special and get attention. It's like going up to someone who just lost his legs and saying, "I know exactly how you feel. In high school I sprained my ankle and couldn't run for a week. We're buddies!"

It's fucking insulting and it makes it hurt even more than it already does.

you a strange guy pal.

I've definitely had "extreme" anxiety, no friends online or off.... until the last year when I started making serious attempts to overcome it.

Now I have a couple online people I talk to...

By your logic I could call you a fucking coward since you haven't tried hard enough to overcome it.
(I wouldn't do that though, because I know what it's like and that can take literally years of trying to find some small improvement... So just chill, OK? We're all at different levels, and even within the level of extremeness can be afraid of different things more than others. But in all our cases it's fucked over our lives, and we have that in common)
