First, thank you for reading my inquiry. I am a 19 year old male who is extremely shy. I can't be in any social situation without the fear of embarrassment or failure. I can't even strike up a conversation with a man let alone a women. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
A. You need to get all your medical diagnoses made and treated. The "screening test" section from my new book "Biological Unhappiness" is available for free at my book's website: http://www.biologicalunhappiness.com
Prozac and Paxil can help for social phobia.
You also need to do specific things to build your self-esteem and self-confidence. In the strongest terms possible I recommend you get Zig Ziglar's tapes and listen, listen, listen. The number is listed at the top of this section.
