Hey everyone I'm Lola and I'm 15 from England and I'm new to JADE.
I've been wanting to post something in this forum since I joined a few days ago but I was too scared too until now but anyway here is a bit about why I joined ..

I have social anxiety disorder and I have done for a few years now and it keeps getting worse Sad . I worry so much about everything and anything that's social is so hard for me. I can barely talk to anyone and most of the time I don't talk at all at school and stuff so some people don't even know my name because I'm so quiet Sad .I had a really bad time last year where I was too scared to go to school because I felt like school was just a big social challenge that I couldn't face so I got so upset and worked up about it that I stayed at home . But now I don't do that anymore but I still am finding it so hard to cope with being so afraid to do anything , sometimes I feel like I wish I could be normal and be able to have fun and join in with convosations ect . I have been to my GP and I was so scared talking to him , he reffered me to a counceling sort of thing but I'm too scared to go because Im scared to talk to people Sad so I don't know how I can get out of this Sad

Anyway I look forward to making new friends here and talking to other people who are having problems like this . Because even though my friends are great they still don't seem to understand how I feel all the time about being so shy and what's going on in my mind. Also if anyone needs someone to talk to about their problems I will be happy to help and support anyone Smile

Thankyou for Reading this , sorry it's so long !
