Thanks. Im at session 17 right now and Im already feeling way more comfortable.
The therapy has been useful from the start (the "slow talking, slow thinking input was very positive for me) but I have to say I ve undergone many ups and downs.
I think I rushed the therapy more than I should: I joined a French class at the start of it where I usually have to give oral presentations, which made me feel pretty awkward, but I have finally been able to overcome the initial embarrasment.
In my case, I left my parents' home at an early age due to psychological harassment from my father and I think I developed social anxiety mainly because of the fear of being rejected again, bearing in mind I live in a country with a very high unemployment rate and I didnt have anyone to help.
I ve always been a good student, so I have somehow managed to survive. It s been very hard though and I have discarded the idea of having a family of my own.
I know there are things I ll never been able to repair but at least I am now proud of myself.
Like they say, if I could, you should too
