I want to share a bit about my experiences with Social Anxiety Disorder and now, how I am taking a stand for people with "SAD" and really speaking up for them, being their voice, their support and guidance.
I had "SAD" for as long as I can remember, always the shy kid at school who hardly ever participated and hated reading out in class. To a angry teen and an even less confident person in my early 20's, my anxiety got worse and worse until the lowest point in 2003 when I could only just leave the house to go and get food (junk food at that) and then return to wallow is my dissapointment as I was too scared to go out and talk to people. Talking to people to get a job or even walking into the city centre was a massive ordeal for me back then!
Now, I have fought my way through and now I am helping others get out of what can only be described as "a living hell" and creating awareness, support and guidance for people with "SAD".
