    Hmm another year.. was it good or bad?

    Another year and it feels like I have never done anything really. It was a rollercoaster ride as always, but I wished there were more highs. I suppose I can't complain too much. I moved to a new place, at least it feels like I am not stagnating in one place. So how did your year go...

    I look logged onto my fake facebook account and spied on people from school & uni. Now I feel so depressed. Its because most of them are married/in relationships and/or have kids and overall seem to living normal lives. Last time I met one group was at my 10th school reunion and even back...

    More and more I am feeling the need too dull my pain & anxiety. I donno I have never abused any drugs (illegal or otherwise) or alcohol, but I don't know why I feel the need for something like Valium now. Does anybody else feel like that? I don't know why maybe because I think other meds...

    Any Family Guy fans here? Anybody watch the 150th ep, Brian & Stewie? What does anybody think of the contents of Brian's safety deposit box? I don't know what the rules are around this forum, but the ep was MA15+ in these parts. So Mods delete this thread if you want. -SS

    What do non-SP people think about people with SP? With all the 'symptoms' that we have... you know... Don't have friends, don't have girlfriends/wives or boyfriends/husbands*, might not be in a good job. tends to be homebodies. What most of the population would, unfortunately tag as traits of...

    SP: All your life or acquired later

    I just want to know if people here had SP all their life or if you acquired later in life? If you got it later in life, then when did you get it? In mid-late teens? As an adult? If you got it later, was it caused by any particular event? Do you think its easier to get cured of SP if you...

    I am feeling a bit disconnected. No no I am not talking about internet... thats also disconnecting.. but thats another story. Ever since I got the net (in mid/late 90s) I have been looking at SP/shyness forums. Always felt that I a bit relieved when I found so many people posting about the...

    Irrational or rational? Real or Imaginary?

    Hmm I am tying to understand! What is real and what is just in my mind. I have always been extremely worried about certain events (parties, uni/school presentations, work meetings). I have been told (by doctors/family) its anticipatory anxiety and irrational fear. All I have to do is to...

    I am sick of this... routine

    No not SP exactly. Well I wish I didn't have it... but thats not what i mean. When I look back at the last few years...It almost seem like I have wasted them. My life seem to revolve around my boring job. All I have done is react to stress from work. I haven't really progressed my life at...
