A mental disorder
that stops people
from living the lives that they had always dreamed of.
Everyday when you step foot
outside of your house, it's like constant anxiousness, and you can't really do anything.
It's horrible, and I wouldn't wish it on anybody.
It can get so bad that people
their houses becuase it's not worth it.
You'll never understand what it's like, unless you have it yourself. A lot of people
think that it's people
overreacting and being shy, but they really have no clue.
often comes with
other disorders, like depression, bipolar, etc.
can be treated successfully (I think/hope...), but people with
are too scared
or embarassed to ask for help. I think that many people
when they do ask for help. So many people turn
to drugs or alcohol to help them
S.A.D. are misunderstood
and I get in trouble becuase I don't talk loud
enough and don't do homework assignments (like book reports) so that I don't have to do oral presentations. I can't leave
my house by myself.
And a really miserable part of any anxiety disorder
is panic attacks which cause people with
to think they're dying
or going crazy.
I always dream about
what it would be like
to not have social anxiety disorder. I can't imagine what it would be like
to have one day where I could
do everything I've ever imagined. If I ever get treated, or somehow magically
it goes away (which I know it never will), I'm going to do everything that I can't do now.
