I too suffer from a social anxiety disorder and hate group work too!! I was put on Zoloft at 100mg in 2001, I have since then gone down to 50 mg but sometimes with the stress of Nursing school approaching I should go to 100 again. Some people just tell me to "stop worrying" but they don't understand. That's like telling someone with anorexia to eat. And once the anxiety starts flowing it seems to get worse. I recently had my first panic attack...I couldn't breath, I feel like I am going to have wrinkles and gray hair sooner than ever! I was diagnosed when the Doc found I not only had a heart murmur but also Mitral Valve Prolapse apparently MVP has a correlation with anxiety disorders. So that made me actually feel better, its not in my head I do have an issue here. Anyway the best advice I can give you is "BE PRESENT in the moment" try not to think further than what is going on RIGHT now. Workout, watch what you eat, take your vitamins (include fish oil--I have found this also helps to raise my mood). Never NOT do something b/c of your disorder.
