> Anybody with SP/SA feel like they have another co-morbid disorder - some sort of neurosis or maybe psychosis - rather than "just" social anxiety?

Ya my sad is bad and generalized anxiety and atypical depression goes along with it. I'm pretty sure those 3 are all mixed anyway...i fall under all 3 to some degree but am defined perfectly by none alone. people with sad or gad often have atypical depression. maois are the best option here...i can speak from experience. youre symptoms are/were exactly like mine....the avoidance is mostly a behavioural issue that youve adapted to to avoid unneeded stress and anxiety. properly treated, avoidance is the first thing you will notice dissapears. you can use therapy to help with the avoidance but med/therapy combo is best. your word "neurosis" is a good pick...this is overreaction to everything to the extreme...gad is typical of this. sad and gad seem to go hand and hand...i think they are all related to atypical depression personally. try looking, in terms of self research, in the area of atypical depression and may see yourself...i did. thats how i began treatment.
