Hi! Social anxiety is obviously so debilitating and it sucks even more when it feels like people don't understand. I have a boyfriend but no real friends and feel very lonely. He doesn't really understand why I care so much what people think, and why it's so difficult for me in social situations. I hardly spend time with any of his family because it makes me so nervous thinking about what I'd say or if they'd like me, and I feel terrible about that. It sucks feeling like you'll be judged by others and fearing that others won't like you. If I could just meet someone similar to me who has social anxiety, it would be so nice! Large groups terrify me, but small, intimate groups are okay. I'd like to start or join a group where we could come together and share our stories, without having to fear how we may be perceived by the others. Anyone interested in doing so in the Fort Lauderdale area? I feel as though I need some support and would definitely return the favor to anyone interested. Thanks.
