First of all I'm not your generic self-diagnosed social awkward penguin. I've been to a psychiatrist, diagnosed with moderate to severe social-anxiety and was put on medication. I know what you are going through. I know about the adrenaline rush you get when a stranger gets near you, the almost heart attack you feel when you try to talk during a class or a meeting (as if you ever do), the long alone walks you take not to deal with strangers, the unfounded shame when you look another person in the eye, the huge wall you put between strangers.
I am going to get some stick from members on the forum as I am going to give some of you guys a reality check on the forum of how you are relying too much on the forum and the nofap challenge and forgetting about its benefits. Here goes my story briefly, discovered 3 months ago I had porn induced ED, social anxiety. I was depressed with life even though I am successful and couldn't pin point what the problem was.
