    I think i may have social anxiety disorder, im bad at meeting new people and recently its started to actually affect mt life. I wont go out with my bf if hes with his mates ect even though i really want to, but when the time comes i get an overwhelming feeling and back out. I never used to be like this, it started at the end of high school where i was bullied because of my looks, and it has really affected my self esteem. Ive joined a dance class to meet new people ect which is good but hasnt been enough to change me. This might sound like a dumb question, but if i went to the doctors and mentioned this problem would it affect my uni offer? Surely uni wouldnt want someone with a social anxiety problem??? Anyone else in the same situation or can relate? keep anon please x

    No it wouldn't affect your uni offer at all, I'm sorry that's all the advice I have.

    I suffer from SA, and I can tell you that it is far from a weak excuse. Your ignorance is an insult for those who suffer from this condition day to day. While you may be able to interact socially in a normal manner, we have great difficulty in doing so. I suggest you refrain from posting messages like this because they stagnate or take away any progress that people suffering from SA have made.

    I'd read up on it and try talking to people who suffer from this condition and listening to them, find out how they feel and how SA effects them. Only then, might you understand how insensitive and blind-sighted you are being.

    Go to a doctor and get diagnosed.
    Self-diagnosis of SA is what has caused so many people like one of the above posters to consider it a mockery.

    To be personally honest it doesn't even sound like you suffer from SA, you're just shy.
