Pathological Shyness vs. Social Phobia

The question was what is the major difference between pathological shyness and social phobia. This one was actually quite easy once I started digging. Pathological shyness is sort of like a branch of social phobia as linguistics is a branch of Anthropology (if I understand it right). Anyway, after perusing the information I decided that I couldn't break it down any better than the website. So I suggest you go there to read about the different levels of shyness and social phobia. When you can't improve on a product, just go with the original.

The Health Center is where I found most of this information.

Next posting will be sometime this week. I've decided that this will just be a weekly posting, not daily. Those of you who do not have blogs - blogger will tell me every time you post, so go ahead and leave a question and I'll try to answer you.

I just hope it helps you sweetie - sometimes knowledge is the key to coping. I also enjoy learning things, so it was no problem. I'll always try to answer your quesitons. Gotta put this college degree to use somehow?!?

My heart goes out to you. I've developed some social anxiety stuff as an outgrowth of PTSD and also experiencing some verbal abuse when I was younger. You're right about it though; you just keep taking small steps to heal.

Everyone is anxious. Everyone worries. But not everyone has to build their life around anxiety, avoidance syndrome, panic attacks, social dysfunction, anger, and depression. This Tribe is for my fellow persons who live their lives with Anxiety.
