Well I've been struggling with Social Anxiety for a few years now but thankfully I'm not nearly as bad as before. Before I used to barely be able to leave the house in fear that I may have to communicate with people and just embarrass myself. I was scared to walk into a shop and buy something because I was worried about embarrassing myself and it was horrible. I still struggle with ordering food from restaurants and every time I go somewhere public, I feel physically sick and sometimes I can barely breathe. Even going to relatives houses I can get these kind of symptoms and I know I shouldn't be worried or anxious but I am My problem is that I gathered some courage to talk to my parents about it and they don't believe me. They shut me down completely and told me that i should just grow up and do it. But that's easier said than done right? I honestly don't know what to do- my public speaking is just as bad as it usually is and if I'm honest I just want to stay at home and read, but my question is- what should I do now? I want to get help but where do I find it?
Thanks for reading
