An anxiety disorder characterized by extreme self-consciousness in normal social situations, including the fear that one is being judged or observed by all those around them. Social anxiety causes people to fear being humiliated or embarrassed much more than is normal. People with social anxiety disorder know that their fear is irrational and yet still avoid any situation in which they may be evaluated or judged.

Social phobics, like those with Avoidant Personality Disorder, may develop defences against their fears, such as denying that they fear social situations or defending themselves through insensetivity.
Holy crap, a factual entry into Urban Dictionary?!

A person with social anxiety may avoid public speaking.

When people fear social situations with strangers, People without it, don't understand it. Were not freaks or weirdos we're normal. I know i shouldn't be afraid of nothing but i am.
IT SUCKS!
Social anxiety is when...You walk into a party, and you never make eye contact with anyone, you sit around by yourself and sweat non stop, then you sneak out the back door and go home.

Afraid of people, beeing verry self-consciousness always feeling there's something wrong with you and that you're are watched by somebody all the time and you always fear that your peers will judge your actions. Living with social anxiety disorder sucks terribly!!! You want to do something but you can't.. you know that your fear is irational but you can't do nothing about it, something like a mental cage. SOCIAL ANXIETY SUCKS AND I HAVE THE WORST TYPE OF SOCIAL ANXIETY DISORDER! The one were you're afraid to go outside, talk to friends, strangers, talking on the phone and even chating with people online! How fucked up is that!?!?! ;( . And were not some crazy psychos! We're just normal people that want to do what normal people do, but we have a stupid mental disorder that makes us feel a completly irational fear that won't go away!.Most of the time we only remember the negative remarks that people said about us and usualy those toughts remain in our minds for weeks. We're not emos or goths!!! they don't have damn clue how it is to live with this shit. Social anxiety is like a fear and pain that won't go away!!NEVER!! And most people don't understand us! If you're a person that doesn't have Social Anxiety disorder, you're probably saying somethin like: ahahahaha what a sad fuck!! It's not like that!! We never wanted to have this stupid disorder. We feel lonely, isolated and barren inside :(
Gabriel only wanted to be like everyone else:
-to play sports such as football/basketball or any sport with a bunch of kids his age;
-to be just like everyone else and don't stand out in a crowd;
-to go to parties and have a good time with friends and meet new people;
-to graduate highschool;
Alas, he will never achive this things since he suffers from Social Anxiety Disorder and has isolated himself from his friends and the world for years ;(

Social Anxiety is the worst form of Mental Disorder, and no one can understand it, without having yet lived with it. Always feeling Humiliated, fear of humiliation, breaking out with sweats, and then feeling even more embarrassed of your sweat and feeling as if everyone is staring at it. It can be a snowball effect. We love to be alone because being alone means actually feeling relaxed, unwatched, and unjudged. It is a very sad thing to live with.

It is very hard for anyone with social anxiety to have any normal form of conversation. Over-examing the words and gestures that other people say or do, and eventually ending up feeling embarassed or humiliated for not saying the right thing, or the funny thing, or the cool thing. Our minds race and race and race all the time, every second of the day we are judging ourselves, trying to change ourselves, trying to relax ourselves, trying to understand ourselves, trying to label ourselves, and trying to understand where we fit in in this world. This is just a glimpse of what rollercoasters through our brain, constantly. Never rest. It is truly a terrible disorder.

We are cool people, we just cant HELP it.
A "normal" person may feel an incredible sadness when a loved one passes away, an intense fear when in a traffic Collision, or extreme nervousness when given a large responsibility.

Now, imagine all three (and more) of these feelings being combined and pounded into a single person every second of the day, every day of the year, and every year of their life. It is intense, but the person with social anxiety, must cope.

characterized by extreme fear of social situations and fear of embarrassment

people who have this often want to do something with their lives, but dont do anything because they are to afraid to go outside. creates a painful mental cage. Groundwork for other illness like depression and addiction to mmorpg's

Cured by either taking in alot of drugs to numb the pain so you can force yourself to a bar..

or going to therapy for years spending countless amounts of money
goth: oh man my girlfriend just broke up with me!! my life sucks so bad imma gonna go cut myself and buy dark clothes!!

guy with Social anxiety: atleast you can get a girlfriend ><

It feels like being trapped under ice, screaming to get out. But no one can hear you.
" I was trying to give a speech today but I totally forgot what I was gonna say so I froze for 10 seconds and told the teacher I was sorry because I forgot what I was going to say "

" Someone tried to talk to me today, but my social anxiety made my heart beat really fast and I just nodded my head "
