How to Treat Social Anxiety

Knowing how to treat social anxiety can mean the difference between a life of complete social freedom and a crippling existence where you hide from day to day interactions.

I know this firsthand because I used to belong to the later of the two.
I probably don't have to tell you dealing with social anxiety is like having a wall in between you and the rest of the world. 

Despite your best efforts, the overwhelming fear, panic and self-consciousness envelopes your every action.

Personally, the paranoia I felt when in social situations was unbearable. I would also constantly squirm and feel restless, not knowing where to put my hands, my body, how to stand or sit – you name it.
