social anxiety disorder

Posted by @jim217, Sep 22, 2011

Does anyone have any suggestions for overcoming social anxiety disorder which comes from having schizophrenia and just being shy with low self esteem?

If you are not already doing it, I would suggest finding a psychiatrist who can help you with whatever medications are appropriate— and then find a therapist who can work with you one the self-esteem and social issues (which are interrelated). Find someone who practices Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. And always, always remember, like a mantra, that YOU ARE ENOUGH, just as you are.

I have schizoaffective disorder with what used to be major social anxiety. I took some Dialectical Behavioral Therapy classes & it’s not as bad now. 🙂
