Question: Shyness.

 fever - Fri Oct 14, 2005 3:51 pm

I have felt out of place and such things since I got out of middleschool. I know a lot of people just say you need to just relax or something, but they don't understand. Shyness is like Catch 22.

My question is are there any psychiatric treatments that have shown succesful, or drugs on the market? I tried anti-depressants, with no change at all, when I was depressed a year ago. I still am really, anyway, thought I am off them now. I've heard Oxytocin made people trust others. . .are there prescriptions in this case?

I just want a normal life, and it's frustrating to be close to one.
