Social Anxiety Disorder : Please somebody take my case.


I know some people replied to this before.
Thank you.

I want to post my case again with details.

Female, 34 yrs old.

Main ocomplaint:

Social anxiety.

I feel anxious whenever i have to go out. Going out by driving myself makes me more anxious. i shout at my kids when i feel anxious.

I feel anxious when walking on the road with lot of traffic. I feel like every body is watching me. I feel anxious if somebody is watching. I can't do things in front of others.

Some situations i faced today.
Today is the start of myd aughter's middle school, I felt more anxious , I didn't even drop her to her school, I dropped her halfway, because i couldn't face seeing lot of people. I felt guilty about it. I didn't buy her uniform and i didn't go to the school office on the first day of school either. I was thinking what she is going through since i didn't buy her the uniform. I couldn't face people in authority.

I cannot go to people and make friendship because of social anxiety. My neighbor called me one time for tea, it's been 7 months i didn't even talked to her after that and didn't call her to my house.

I don't want anybody to come to my house, because i feel anxious. I don't know what to talk about. I feel stupid.

I won't tremble or my heart won't go fast, but i just feel anxious.

I never usually drive with my friends , i only drive with my kids. One time when i went with my friend, i did an accident. not big one , but while backing i turned my car too early which scratched the other car. So i never want to drive with any friends.

I want to avoid social situations .

I didn't make any friends with my neibours , if i see my neighbours (group of people standing and talking together), i feel jealous. I cannot go and introduce my self. I have stage fear. I feel anxious at social gatherings.

If you have any questions please ask me.

I would take any treatment to get out of this.

I suffer from inferiority complex. I am 5 ft tall, 120 lb wt, I look good, but still i feel inferior. I am afraid to approach people, since i didn't know how to behave. I always think 'what other people think of me'.
Eventhough i make friendship, i cannot prolong conversation, which leaves our friendship wherever it is.That teans which never moves further. Everybody remains as aquaintance. No close friends.

Suppose for the first time i made a friend and talked to her about whatever i can talk about. whatever comes to my mind. When i meat next time the same person, i don't know what to talk about which leaves me in an awkward situation. I always think what to talk about. And i think what they think of me.

I feel inferior in every thing, Even in cooking food also. My kids don't love to eat what i make. I feel angry at them. I talk merciless to them like 'from tomorrow i won't cook anything for you. Eat garlic bread , chips whatever you like'. They won't eat any veges. I feel angry at them and at the same time i feel guilty, may be i am not making any variety food, but i know they don't want to try any new food i make.

I am always thirstless. I won't remember to drink water. When i remember i drink some water.

I like sweets very much.

I have joint stifness in the shoulders. I don't have any health problems . Not even headaches. I have two kids.

Menstrual cycle regular 25-28 days. Usual menstrual cramps . not severe. menses lasts for 4 days. bright red.

I feel comfortable sitting at home. but feel sad about it. I want to be more outgoing. I want to join some course , but can't because, i know i will be miserable, and boring without making any friends.

I love listening to good music. I feel happy while listening to good music. Sometime, i get tears in my eyes when i hear sad love songs.

Talking about God.
I have faith in God. But not much into spiritual things.
I pray god every day, I feel guilty when i don't find time to pray god.

I am forgetful.

I am more nice to outside people than my family.

I keep postponing things since i don't have courage to do. like calling some people on the phone, and going to some shop i never went. I afraid to drive to new places. I affraid to judge things while driving , that's why i am afraid of going to places i never went before.

Eventhough i drive, I am afraid to get gas for the car. When one time i went i couldn't fill the gas properly, i had to ask somebody to help, which made me embarassed and from then i never went.

Sorry, i keep adding details,

In my childhood I was always like day dreaming if some new girl comes in my class, I have to become close friend with her etc etc but never did. Now also i do that. I never went to a shop to buy anything in my childhood. So when i was a teenager i was getting very tensed to go and buy anything, i was getting blushes and sweat.

Now also In India, If some person was selling something on the road in the cart i feel tensed to go and buy. I cannot neggotiate. I will take it whatever the price is.

And I am indecisive can't just make a decision.

I get worried for everything.

Regarding neatness:

I like my house to be very clean but lazy to do that.
I don't like doing house work.
But while cooking i am very nea,t i wash my hands even i touch the computer mouse in the middle of cooking. And i don't like it when my husband wipes his face with my towel or my kid's towel. I don't like when he licks his finger sometimes, i want him to wash his hand immediately.

I can't bear the sweat smell when my husband wanders around without wearing a shirt.

I don't get ideas. i.e if somebody gives me some art supplies and asks me to do some thing out of it, my mind goes blank. I could't get any ideas. i.e i am not creative.

I cannot even make up astory. my thinking capacity is less.

I gave lot of details. If somebody replies then i will proceed.

Thanks Pankaj, I know I could count on you.

You helped me in the depression case, I hope you remember.


I had some improvement with sepia and Aurum and then didn't take anything.

One week back I took Anacardium 200C , 3 doses.

Now As per your advice i started taking Gelsimium 200 C. For now i took 2 doses. You said i have to take for 4 days , 2 doses each day. I will do that.

Thanksyou very much. I hope that you guide me in this until I am free from my social phobia.

The remedy depends upon the constitution and mind symptoms of the individual.

Not necessary that the same medicine will benefit another person with some common symptoms.

Best wishes,
