  • Should someone with social anxiety (me) go away for college?

    Hello, I just recently graduated high school a couple of days ago. At the end of middle school I had been the most comfortable I ever was compared to my feelings in 6th and 7th grade. Normally what happens is I am extremely fearful of social situations throughout the first years in a new school. My last year in a school I begin to get comfortable and dread the fact that I graduate because it means starting all over again. High school was no different. I will miss everyone single one of the graduates that graduated with me. I have worked very hard to try and end my social anxiety and fear of being judged, and part of me knows it is time to move on. I really should have made this decision about TWO months ago but I have until July 1st. Will going away to college end my social anxiety forever? I will be six hours away from home and will be dorming on campus. I will also have a roommate and money is not an issue in this case since I received a scholarship that pays for everything! Please help I am terrified of the idea of going away for college because I will be facing my social anxiety issue "head on" but maybe it could end my problem forever?
  • What do you worry most about?

    I am making a zine for the counseling center here at school that focuses on college students with anxiety disorders. I personally have G.A.D. and this has contributed to a lot of the content in the zine but I would like some outside input. I want this zine to help those who don't suffer from an anxiety disorder understand what its like. I often struggle to explain how it feels to my husband and my family. They don't understand why I can't just "calm down" or "chill out". I need some quotes ( you will remain anonymous of course) from you guys explaining your experiences, what you struggle with most, and what has helped you cope. I'm also looking for input on what images come to mind when you think about your anxiety. For example one of the spreads in the zine is a series of thumbnail images that slowly change from one image to the next to show a "white out". This is something that happens to me when I have a panic attack I white out instead of black out. I would greatly appreciate your contributions and I will post the zine on my profile when its completed. Thanks,
