Q: 

social anxiety disorder: Yet Another Made Up Illness

A: Well, aren''t we making the world a better place today? Good thing you haven''t lost your resolve... some of us have already given up. I don''t like the way drug companies are pushing their products - the consumer ads, the vists to drs., all that, but... There really are people who are unable to function because they are so painfully ''shy''. My niece, who is a very beautiful (and I''m not exagerating here, she is a one-in-a-million type) and talented soon to be 21 yr old, will now actually leave her house now that she''s on Zoloft. I''m on Paxil. I hate it (the side-effects are bad), but it keeps me alive. First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you. F. Scott Fitzgerald nice idea

Also don''t keep trying different methods of punishment/discipline because it makes things worse. Have the punishment fit the crime as much as possible. He...


Q: 

Is this symptoms of social anxiety? Depression? :(?

A: 12 Aug 2011 Hey Aldrig, I too use to be a heavy smoker of the Ganja. I have to say since I quit, I have much less social anxiety. Your anxiety sounds like it qualifies for effecting your ability to function and needs to be addressed. Unfortunately until you cut out the pot, you may find that the medicine doesn''t work as well. I can only share once I quit the pot and got on the right medication and therapy, my anxiety has virtually dissappeared. I no longer worry about what others are saying or doing in reference to me. I would definitely be honest with the doctor. They are use to helping people like us, that is their job. I sometimes miss the buzz, but I definitely...
