This seems to cover a wide range of social situations and I question… so many people would be diagnosed with this disorder. If you were traumatized or abused as a child, would a psychiatrist come to the conclusion that this is probably what you would have and perhaps not dig further, stamping Social Anxiety Disorder on your file? I would hope not. So many people are uncomfortable and fall into the “speaking in public” or “eating/drinking/writing/working in front of people” category. …. Just my opinion.
I do agree with their treatments though, they would alleviate anxiety.
