    So after finally working up the courage to go to my GP about my social anxiety, I get told that SA is most likely what I am suffering from. I felt relieved in a way but also my heart just sank at the reality that I was suffering from a mental health condition...

    Anyway he proceeds to explain that CBT would potentially be very beneficial to me, until he told me that the waiting list is 7-9 months in my area! 9 ****ing months. I feel completely helpless after that news, especially since my anxiety has got worse as of late. Fantastic, another 7-9 months of unemployment with college being the only form of work/education that I am doing right now, all because my social skills are that of a parrot. Unsure where to turn to next? Any help is greatly appreciated, or even if you can relate to my little story.

    This makes me so sad and angry, it really does!
