Things that people with social anxiety will understand.

You may be fortunate enough to have never experienced social anxiety, however it is a lot more common then you might think. This list may help you to recognise some signs of social anxiety that either you or somebody you know may be experiencing:

  1. You’re always forced or encouraged to attend a party.
  2. You’re constantly tired due to you’re fight or flight mode being engaged all the time.
  3. You may experience physical symptoms such as an increased heart rate, sweating and shortness of breath.
  4. You panic when the phone rings, whatever time of day – even if you’re expecting a phone call.
  5. You second guess yourself over most things and end up convincing yourself that you’re wrong.
