    Social Anxiety Disorder

    A person relates their story through poetry. Interesting account of this disorder.
    I don't understand what's happening.
    I am sitting in Writing Seminar
    and it feels like my hands are shaking,
    like I've got a tremor.
    I try hard to focus, stare at my hands,
    but I can't tell whether or not they're shaking.
    I don't understand why I can't tell.
    I should be able to tell
    if my own hands are shaking.
    My eyesight can't be trusted.
    I'd try sitting on my hands,
    but that would make people stare,
    if they haven't already noticed the shaking.
    I try clasping my hands together,
    but that's no good, either.
    I can see myself with my hands together,
    banging them up and down on the desk
    like a piston, like a cartoon sledgehammer.
    I see myself doing it,
    but I know I'm not.
    I can't be.
    If I were, people would be staring.

    I went to read the whole thing... damn that is rough.

    I was looking forward to a poem of healing and no more anxiety

    It was an interesting read nonetheless and a scarily honest depiction of this disorder from the writer's perspective. Unfortunately, from what I've read medicine only eases the symptoms. I'm not sure how easy it is to heal. I believe cognitive behavioral therapy helps a lot.

    Yeah, it was interesting and pretty descriptive that I really wish I could help her because life is not easy for her. Anyone could just label her weird but she is in turmoil, behaviors she can't help.

    One thing I wish she could try is herbs and supplements.
    I wonder if she did a complete blood work up to test for vitamin, mineral, ... deficienies. Also test for lead and other things that might be hurting her body such as metals that might be in her body.

    That was a very interesting read.

    Crazy one time, I felt outside myself for over 2hrs I almost started trippin, but I knew what was happening like I knew I was trippin (not sure why) so I just focused on controling my mind to the way I know I should feel, its real weird but it has not happened again, I think i'm pretty clinically sane.

    well i hope
