I have a form of social phobia that is really f@#$'ing my life up. It is really hurting me financially and relationship wise.
I don't really have anxiety about anything other then the symptoms of the disorder itself. My self esteem seems to be in the basement and nearly impossible to bring up.........no matter what I do. My main symptom is the articulation of my speech. I start slurring and mispernouncing words that I have been saying my entire life.
I went through a 6yr span on SSRI's and I had the best years of my life. All the above symptoms left and I did more in those 6yrs then most do in 12.
Year 5 I started to loose my hair and freaked out. I quit the SSRI's and my hair grew back. I tried them again after 1.5yrs off and hair started falling out like crazy, so I stopped again.
I need something that will help me "long term" while I work through my issues. Any advice would be great!
