      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.

      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!

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