Hey everyone

Iím sorry to be negative but Iím close to giving up hope with my Social Anxiety
Iíve been trying over a year to get effective treatment without success, its such an uphill struggle in the UK

Iím currently taking Marplan (for those who donít know)
Iíve been on it since June the 3rd, reached 30mgs on June the 26th and I went up to 40mgs last Sunday
The Marplan doesnít seem to be helping with social anxiety at all, nor does it seem to be very effective for depression, it is helping generalised anxiety a bit.
I have a bad feeling its not going to work for SA, although I hope to give it a fair trial
The side effects are few but quite annoying, bad constipation and disturbed sleep/insomnia

I really want to try Nardil, but no UK Psychiatrist Iíve spoken to has been willing to prescribe it, for some stupid reason the last one I saw preferred Marplan over Nardil

I havenít met a single doctor in the UK who takes social anxiety seriously, they all say ďwhat you really need is CBTĒ

Iím so tired of trying now, its so lonely struggling, my parents think I should stop trying to get treatment, so does the only friend Iím still in contact with.

I used to think its better to face ones problems, but now I think denial might be best, itís the classic UK response!
