This might be a repost but does anyone here have it? I've had it all my life and so do my parents (although it's hard for them to admit it to themselves) I also have depression. I tried CBT and it didn't work for me. I was put on lexapro,celexa and abilify for it. The SSRI's proved worhless. The ablify changed my life since it lifted my deppression and it took the laziness that came with the deppression. Yet I'm still very quiet,shy and terrified of social interaction. I've been begging my psychiatrist to put me on klonopin but she refuses to. I understand they are addictive but I am willing to try benzos since they seem to be the only thing that works for anxiety. What are people here taking? Anyone in theraphy? Did anyone beat SA? ps. I also wanted to say sometimes the SA is so bad that I'm scared of reading e-mails and even seeing replies to my posts on this forum. It sounds silly but that's how anxious I can get.
