Social Anxiety Support Group

Wednesday, 27 July 2005 at 5:00 am Pacific USA Time.

Our weekly paper lists what to do around town including workshops and support groups. Yesterday, I cracked myself up reading that we have a Social Anxiety Support Group. If you’re laughing already, then congrats for getting it. If you’re not laughing, here’s the explanation.

"Social Anxiety" is, according to drug commercials, a disorder. Evidently, it’s no longer just shyness. If you get anxious about social situations, you might need medication. Funny enough, that medication sounds like it would give you half the things that would make you afraid to go out in public (loss of bowel control, "certain sexual side effects"). The point is that people with this "disorder" are evidently uncomfy with social situations and being around groups of people, or so the commercials have taught me.

So if you have a Social Anxiety Support Group, does anybody show up?
