Hi 😊, I am a 17 years old boy from Morocco whose been suffering from social anxiety for 5 years. I had a pretty much normal childhood even tough I used to play by myself because I had no siblings and yet my parents never allowed me to blend with the neighborhood kids. My lack of social skills really held me back when I first entered school and for the same reason I have been bullied for several years. When I reached the 9th grade the bullying got even worse till I hated something called school, days went by and I changed my school to attend a high school. I thought I could change with this new chance given but I was totally wrong, I got bullied and bad treated even worse for my look and excessive kindness. i survived 2 years of high school even tough waking up for every school day was like hell. I am now on my 3rd high school year and I managed my social anxiety quite well till the last 4 months where I just couldn't. Now I cant even breath inside the classroom anymore because its really hard to be in a place for 8 hours when you everyone hates (and yes they do I have a really great action processing). So I quit doing homework and anything that would remind me of school despite this year being a crucial year. Now am not only worried when I am in a social situation but all the time even on weekends, because all what my mind can think of is the upcoming social interactions. Its been also more than a year since I havent been to a social gathering or just hanging out with family or even going to the mall. I learned that I can longer concentrate in the classrooms and have good grades that will garante me a decent job, and even If I do I am not sure I can survive another 5 years of studies or a lifetime 9 hours per day social interaction so I began searching about work on the internet and I found something called Drop-shipping. Luckily even teens can start such a thing but my parents would never support me because they things having a 9-5 job is everything but I cant really go doing this path anymore.
