I can relate to the social anxiety issue. With just a few people around I can be funny, tell jokes and be ok but when its a larger crowd I cant get up in front of anyone because the fear of making a mistake is overwhelming. I have even slipped out of the back door on many occasions when I was supposed to make a speech or sing in front of a crowd and it has hurt my career tremendously as well as my social life. I have had this problem since I was a teen and I am now 62 and still have it!
