Social Anxiety Disorder
What is it?
Social Anxiety Disorder is an intense, persistent fear of being watched and judged by others.
This fear can affect work, school, and your other day-to-day activities. It can even make it hard to make and keep friends.
Some people with the disorder do not have anxiety in social situations but have performance anxiety instead.
They feel physical anxiety symptoms in situations such as giving a speech, playing a sports game, dancing, or playing a musical instrument on stage.
