How Anxiety Feels...

A phobia on the other hand (while still a very strong and unpleasant reaction), is an irrational fear which has been 'symbolically attached' to an object, or situation, which causes little or no real danger. It is usually accompanied by strong avoidance behaviour connected with the phobia, which will run alongside intense feelings of anxiety, loss of control and panic.


Sometimes, confrontation with the phobia, can even lead to fainting, but this is usually only associated with blood, injury, or needle-type phobias.


Fears and phobias are the result of a hidden or repressed memory or emotion that has become associated with particular situations. Natural fears serve a genuine purpose (fear of heights, fire, etc), but phobias mostly appear to be completely irrational, however they all have a cause, or perhaps did, and serve some purpose - otherwise they couldn't and wouldn't exist!

Social phobia is a fear of how others might see you, what they think of you, and feeling that whatever you're doing is being noticed by those around you - in short it is the fear of being judged. Social phobia is based around social / public situations, and these can be anything from nights out, to going shopping, meeting people, going to work, parties, entertainment situations, or even a complete inability to use public toilets, as well as many other situations where people come into some kind of contact with others. This fear can lead to the need to arrange your whole life to avoid the situations including avoiding using / answering the telephone, or typing / writing something down in front of others, avoiding signing your name, or indeed anything that could possibly put you at the centre of attention, or 'on the spot'.


If you suffer from social phobia or social anxiety this fear becomes your worst enemy.



...and can ultimately cause a full-blown anxiety attack or panic attack. Social anxiety also shares many similar symptoms with general anxiety.
