I have the same problem. I started taking beta blockers, but for the most part, they only helped with the symptoms (it will slow my heart rate but I would still feel nervous/awkward). Then I started seeing a psychiatrist and was prescribed anti anxiety meds. It took about two months for me to see the effects, but they definitely do help with my social anxiety.

Hi there!

I’m sorry you’re dealing with this. I feel unqualified to give any advice because I’ve never really experienced social anxiety BUT…

I just felt compelled to reach out to you. If you find that your mind goes blank when interacting with a new person, try defaulting to just asking them questions about themselves. My mom always told me that most people really like to talk about themselves and it helps take the burden of the conversation off of you if you’re feeling nervous. 

I don’t know if that sounds like something that will help but I figured I would throw it out there.

Take care OP! <3
