I always seemed to be on my own at school and the quietest kid in class. Suffice to say, my childhood years weren’t the happiest. Every memory seems to take place beneath a grey sky and characterised by feelings of misery and worthlessness.Unfortunately, these uncomfortable thoughts and feelings continued into my adult life, making simple things, like walking around the shops or going out to meet friends, a daily struggle. I used to self medicate to dull the symptoms, but it just made me feel ten times worse the next day.Eventually my life had reached a point where I could continue feeling isolated and subconsciously threatened by other people all the time or do something about it.

I could see where life was heading if I didn’t - and it didn’t look good. So off I went to see the doctor for their advice on what I should do.As has happened to many people suffering from anxiety, the doctor immediately prescribed me with medication (propranolol - a beta blocker mainly used to treat hypertension) to ‘calm me down’.

While the medication did calm my nerves (slightly), it didn’t do anything to counter the negative thoughts that kept hammering away at me all the time. So I decided to do some research of my own.It was while looking into the causes of anxiety that I started finding out about the more specific symptom of social anxiety disorder.

After reading through a number of books on the subject and blogs of other sufferers, I started to discover more about the condition - what causes it and what you can do to overcome it.I then set about applying what Id learned to my daily life and making gradual lifestyle changes (e.g. regular exercise, being more productive etc) that would help me feel better about myself and improve how I responded to the situations that would normally make me feel anxious).I wasn’t cured overnight.

But Im pleased to say that the changes I made to how I thought about things and how I approached situations has reduced my anxiety to an extent where it no longer stops me from enjoying my life.Whilst I can still feel anxious from time to time, my social anxiety disorder is no where near the levels it was.

It doesnt stop me from going where I want to go or doing the things I want to do, and my life has improved vastly as a result.I wrote this eBook to provide other people suffering from social anxiety with a guide to understanding their problem, what causes it and the strategies they can use to overcome it.The first half of this eBook focuses on the psychology behind social anxiety and cognitive behavioural therapy techniques you can use to think in a healthier, more accurate way.The second half covers the ways in which social anxiety can affect your daily life and provides strategies for overcoming these problems, such as how to overcome painful memories of being bullied, how to say no to unfair requests and how to assert yourself healthily.I hope you find the information in this eBook useful and it sets you on a path towards overcoming social anxiety and living a more fulfilling life free from the fear of strangers.All the best,Matthew
