tell me about that...
I'm not as shy as I used to be, but I still get "shitting my pants" kinda scared in crowds. (I used to be pretty social anxious, was hard to leave the house etc...)
I was pretty good with not getting panic attacks, but recently I got caught in a hostile crowd on a event, and saw some girls fingers being broken in a door because of it. right in front of me, I've never heard anything scream so bad and it wouldn't and wouldn't stop.. it was awful.
Her hand didn't look like a hand anymore after that either... it was terrible, and now I feel like i have to work up all I accomplished again :/
to get over shyness tho, handing out flyers for crashdiet is good practice against it
