Hey Bill, your definitions fit me to the T. I feel so weak and pathetic because of this. There are only a couple of things that I have found helpful, and therapy is not one of them. Stimulants can be helpfull in social situations. It forces you to be sociable. I'm not sure if this is a healthier alternative to any of the other med therapies, and still has it's side effects. It works wonders for apprehension. For me, the thoughts are still there, but I am able to move on from them and not get 'stuck' on some self-destructive train. I couldn't stand and talk to someone for more than about 30 seconds...then I had to leave. I lasted about 5 minutes with the stimulant. It doesn't sound like a big deal to most, but was quite a revelation for me. The other alternative is sedation, in which you don't really care if your being sociable or not. Although, this doesn't really help the main prob. Very interesting...I'll keep an eye on this post
Happy hunting!
