I'm new here, obviously! Felt like I was getting quite a bit better (started working etc) but i'm still stuck at home and feel utterly trapped and it really exacerbates my sa (severe issues with my mum) I'm hoping to find some friends here
I think it's impossible to overcome even moderate social phobia without professional help. I've come a long way, but it's as far as I'm going on my own. The big things I need in life still lie outside my grasp because there's only so much we can do on our own.
