I have never been formally diagnosed, but I would put money on social anxiety for me. I have the classic fear of judgement, over-anxiety in social encounters with people I don’t know, and will blank out and get visibly nervous if I have to speak in front of a people (sometimes smaller groups that I know somewhat). I’ve found Dr. Thomas A. Richards work on Social Anxiety to be top notch. Unfortunately, my ADHD has gotten in the way of being able to focus and practice the cognitive therapy all the way through.
