These children constantly feel "on stage," which can lead to a great deal of self-consciousness. – Social anxiety disorder usually begins in adolescence. – It can develop suddenly after a stressful or humiliating experience or slowly over time. – An equal number of girls and boys experience social anxiety. – Some of the problems associated with social anxiety disorder include poor school performance, low confidence in social situations, trouble developing and maintaining friendships, and depression.

    your mother probably grew up with "children are seen and not heard."  so she can only do her best. can you go to a counseler with her and improve your relations with her and then you both might be better in the future.

    Has anyone suggested the scientific approach? A Neurofeedback specialist can analyze the problem by looking at the brain activity. If you have severe activity causing your thoughts to race this will cause severe anxiety. Neurofeedback can unlock the brain. My son has had 26 sessions and is feeling extremely better.

    I had this all along and I had no clue that it was actually a disorder. I need more advice though

    i think it’s a genetically pre-disposed condition that is often seen somewhere in the family. it can also result in or be caused by general depression.

    To everyone on these comments: It’s not lack of religous faith but a lack of faith in ourselves that is the cause of our problems ( genetics and traumatic events too)

    No, they are content because they know that they should not do evil things that could cause destruction or misery to the undeserving.
    There are things that we should not do, We should not kill, Lie, steal etc.
    We should not do this things because we are not made to do those things.
    We are not made to SIN. But mans PRIDEFUL heart wanted more than what he deserves.

    How do I know my God is the real one? Im not a Catholic but the Catholic church is full of miracles of God`s enemy.

    Prideful people like you who wants to be like God will be destroyed for eternity.
    You children of pride wanted more than what you deserve.
    The day of the Lord will come very soon, may He have mercy upon your soul.

    @Wyatt7211 @Wyatt7211 Faith did not hinder the development of man.
    FAITH in the TRUE GOD opened the eyes of the people.
    It gave them CONTENTMENT.
    It limited the peoples actions because it is true that we cannot do all things.
    Faith enables us to see what we are and our purpose and what things we must not do.

    Pills, therapy, books about the subconcious mind etc you name it.

    In my experience I can truly testify that only The Living GOD has healed me.
    Medications from doctors helped me a little and it was temporary.
    God’s healing power is ETERNAL!

    Now Im not an antidepressant pill dependent.
    The cure for fear is FAITH!
    Fear limits you.


    God loves you and He wants you to LET HIM…
