Hi all, I am new here and have joined as soon as I found the website. Why have I joined I will share with you in future posts as I go on a journey to help myself overcome my social anxiety for which I have lived with for over 30 years. I am hoping as a male nearly reaching 50 using this forum will be a way of both coping and overcoming (if possible) the anxiety I live with daily. I also hope on this journey I can support others who like me dread those social invitations. Thank you for reading this and I hope along the way I meet / befriend new people and share laughter and stories.
