Keep in mind that it all takes time. Some days will be better than others. Also, try to have a goal of better anxiety management, rather than trying to eradicate it completely. While that would be wonderful, we are wired to feel anxiety to protect us. It's where we go from there (after an event) that seems to separate some of us! Some people can move on. Some of us have a harder time, and ruminate. Arg.

I have dealt with panic attacks since age 7 and it's been off and on. The past few years it's been ON a LOT. All the time. It's hard for me to be out around people too, only in short spurts. If I didn't have xanax, I wouldn't be able to do it. I take xanax and benedryl and it helps. I also have klonopin to take now and then. My dr. wants me on zoloft, but I have fought against it for months. I need something, but what? Another SSRI? Egads. I just don't know. Just tried Buspar for 2 days at a VERY low dose. The side effects were too intense and I just couldn't handle MORE anxiety from it and being dizzy, nausea.

So, it seems you are doing the right things; therapy, meds and keep trying with going out, in small doses. Keep in mind, it doesn't matter if you have nothing to say. It doesn't matter if you just stand there. Love yourself regardless and remember in the whole scheme of things, it doesn't matter what they think. Chances are, it's nothing like what you think they are thinking. Try to be in the moment and JUST BE. Life is passing by while we are busy worrying about insignificant things, ya know? I do it too, and have to remind myself to BE HERE NOW.

I sucks. We are all in this together and all dealing with something, many the same things you are.
