First comes the feelings of chaotic and uncontrollable worry.

Then you find yourself struggling with nervousness, shaking and trouble speaking.

With the build up of anxiety over time you start to find yourself suffering with debilitating phobias.

As a result your anxiety begins to present itself as fear and a feeling of hopelessness.

While all the time your physiology is being affecting as you find yourself holding stress and tension in your body..

If this is you, I can help because I’ve been there myself and now I am free of my social anxieties. If they present now, they present only as occasional small waves rather than overwhelming tsunamis.
