The Science of Social Anxiety Disorder | What? Why? and How?


So, tell me about yourself? I did my undergraduate from SJCIT… and I took PHP pro.. I’m asking about yourself? not what’s in your CV. So, tell me about yourself? Well, I love watching movies
I love video games I’m a chronic procrastinator though but.. I do get.. Are you serious? Hey, what’s up man?
how’re you doing? Come on, I’m talking to you. You wanna know how I’m doing? My grades are sinking, I’m fucking
failing in everything in life and I don’t really give a shit about that but
all my parents care about is that shit Know what I care about in life? All I want to be
is a normal fucking person… Go out like a normal fucking person… It’s been eight
fucking years, I’ve been dealing with this shit and I have no fucking sign of
getting better. You know what happens when I take my hands out like this? They
start shaking and I have to put them in my pockets so that people do not notice.
This is what is going on with me. Is this what you wanted to know? What’s wrong man? I’m good man, I’m good. Imagine overthinking minor interactions
into oblivion and jumping to the worst conclusions every time to the point of
being sick that’s how Byrania on reddit explains
social anxiety disorder and it cannot be more accurate.. Remember when you were a kid
and your mom left you in a line or you had to hold up a line for a friend and
you were worried what if someone barges in asking questions or something happens
there.. Social anxiety disorder also known as social phobia makes you avoid social
situations due to the irrational fear of being judged, you overanalyze all your
actions and think of the worst outcomes Your mind wants to prepare for it but
can’t think of an appropriate way. A person suffering from social anxiety
disorder wants to say the right things and make a good first impression but
they feel a crippling inability to do so. Introversion or shyness is how you’re
wired, whereas, social anxiety disorder is something that holds you back you to
fear instead of choice. As an introvert or a shy person you choose not to
socialize while for a socially anxious person you can’t even if you want to Now shyness and introversion are often confused with social anxiety disorder… so,
when people see a socially anxious person they might think, how can a person
be this shy? But, there’s more than that. Now for people with social anxiety, it’s
not always necessary that all aspects of their life take a hit. For example, some
may be able to speak in public but won’t be able to do so with others or vice
versa. Some may find it extremely terrifying to go to job interviews but
if they get through that, they may be able to do their tasks really well. It’s because for starters it’s a
disorder. It is something that can rob you off of your life experiences. You
won’t be able to do a lot of things like to a job interview well or do any other
job for that matter. You will find it difficult to make new friends and even
keep the ones that are already your friends. Normal activities like going to
a restaurant, starting a new new conversation. Speaking in public, asking
for directions or going to school or work become very difficult to do and
with such normal tasks become difficult to handle then it’s a huge problem
therefore treatment is necessary. So, another sad part about social anxiety
disorder is, it often comes with symptoms such as palpitations, hands shaking and
what not. These symptoms make people avoid social situation and their social life
is hampered due to that … and Abhishek actually has suffered from social
anxiety disorder here so I think he has some experience to share. So, this was during my high school or plus two days I was so shy that I would feel anxious to
go to the college cafeteria. I would not have lunch because of that. Because of my
social anxiety disorder. My social life was hampered because of that because I
had friends but I never really hung out with them. I hid myself alone in a room.
In college, I often be locked in class writing poetry or something and my
studies were also suffering. Teachers would come to me and tell me that I
could come to them and ask for help but I never went and never asked for help to
anybody. I tried to do everything myself. So, I was kind of overwhelmed by all of
this. So, after I finished my +2 .. I went to a psychiatrist and I figured out that I
was suffering from generalized anxiety disorder and social anxiety disorder
that’s when I realized that it’s a constant uphill battle and I realized
that I need help. I need medication and I also need a good support system. So, if
you are suffering from social anxiety disorder or any form of anxiety disorder,
the first thing you should do is to seek professional help. Social anxiety disorder, although is different from shyness but it can be a result of extreme
shyness. Other factors that cause it include genetic factors and
environmental factors such as your family, your upbringing and other
situational factors but genetics is what plays a key important role in causing
social anxiety disorder. So, if you have crippling anxiety the first step is to
always seek out professional help there’s no two ways about it. Don’t
hesitate to ask for help from an experienced psychotherapist and there
are various treatments for this such as the cognitive behavioral therapy where
you are taught that you can’t really control the situations you are in but
you are taught to take control of how you interpret the elements of the
environment. There’s also mindfulness meditation
which does really help if you put yourself into it and there are support
groups where you meet similar people listen to their stories, share your own
and learn how they deal with unfavourable situations Now there’s also medication which might not always be necessary but as in
Abhishek’s case where you are crippled due to anxiety you might need it so
those were some things you need to know about social anxiety disorder if you
think you have it do not be afraid to seek help 🙂

  1. its really "babbaal" video. full of important informations and helpful for those who are seeking for.
    keep going bro. keep it up. best wishes.

  2. Depression

    It's not that I don't want to be happy
    it's that despite my best efforts I can't bring myself to be happy.

    I feel suffocated, embarrassed, ashamed,
    Why did I have to be this way
    I have a great family, amazing friends, good academic results,
    – on paper everything is okay
    Yet all I ever seem to see is sadness and grey

    It's like there's a constant burden on you pulling you to the ground and however hard you try you can't bring yourself out
    You can't bring yourself to care about anything – not me, not him, not her
    Living has become the constant nightmare.

    And it's just not fair.

    Society will tell you to try yoga, go for a walk, listen to meditation.
    I tell them that this cannot be solved by exercise or medication.

    It's a disease that affects every aspect of my life, my relationships, my work, my education
    And even to this day despite my best efforts to explain
    I am met with blind hesitation.

    They ask me why are you always sad, I tell them I don't know…I don't know
    What I do know is that I wake up everyday feeling like absolutely shit – and that that's become my norm.
    I'm afraid of the outside world, afraid of putting my guard down in the fear that I will be judged for something that I cannot control

    Where's the fairness of it all?

    Do you think I enjoy to watch myself fall?
    Into this hole of self hate, shame and loathe
    So I just hide and put up a wall
    That's so high, you will never see my pain or any of my flaws
    I create this character and he is perfect, he's invincible.

    And so I live these two different lives, one for the public and one just for me late at night
    Cos that's easier than admitting I have a problem

    and- that's the problem

    The stigma is real people
    And it will not go away until we realise that mental health is a big deal.
    It's a hidden disease thats affecting so many lives, wake upand listen to the silent cries
    It's the kid that never speaks or the guy who's always tired,
    The lady who's too emotional or that man who just got fired
    cos he was absent a lot – he couldn't get out of bed due to his
    mental health
    but do you think any of his colleagues knew that – course not.

    Depression is the hell inside of me and it eats me up daily.
    Daily
