Social Phobia

Imagine going through your whole life in the constant fear of worrying about the others' opinion for you, saying only such things which might approve you in the peer group and scared to go out in the public to escape the scrutinizing eyes of the people.

There are people who would rather prefer to stay at home for an endless time period than going out of their homes. Such people give importance to the thoughts of others so much that they tend to react accordingly and forget their natural behavior or attitude. There are people who constantly fear the prying eyes of the people when moving out in a public place.

Do you avoid parties and social get-togethers just because you don't want to interact with the people? If you experience something like this then you should be careful since you must be gripped with social anxiety disorder. Social phobia or social anxiety disorder is a neurotic disorder where a person may feel uncomfortable to interact more often with people socially. According to a survey out of the total number of people detected with social anxiety disorder there are just 25% of them who really go ahead for the treatment of the disease.

Social anxiety disorder although appears to be a very harmless looking disorder but actually it is a serious kind of nervous disorder that affects the behavioral pattern of a person to a great extent. Social anxiety disorder is a kind of social phobia in which a person has acute fear of eating, drinking, talking or being watched out in a public place like a gathering. People who suffer from social phobia encounter difficulties when speaking in public, eating and drinking in public, writing in front of others, meeting new people, being the centre of attention, being watched doing something, using the telephone or even when having to speak to authority figures.
