    SSRI and CBT help me to deal with it. The combination between them is more effective than each one of them individually.

    There can be meds that help alleviate it. I really like taking Ativan as-needed when I’m feeling overwhelmed at work. I feel calmer but not fuzzy or out-of-focus. I feel normal not drugged or tired like some meds do. Another thing that really helped me (which I would’ve hated hearing a year ago) was just forcing the interactions. In April I got a job and I have to make dozens of phone calls a day. After a week or two my anxiety was significantly less. And after all these months I dare say I am good at my job lol. I also think it’s related to better self esteem. A good social network can do that for you, different perspectives, and lifestyle changes. Best of luck!

    it’s good to put yourself into situations that may make you a bit uncomfortable. i know it’s hard but trust me it’ll get better.
