How to overcome this disorder?

Okay firstly nothing to overcome it has to be managed.
So if you are diagnosed by a psychiatrist with social anxiety disorder.
Then for management we actually see the severity of it.
Medication is required for managing signs and symptoms of the disorders.
Treatment is tailored according to the patient’s needs and requirements.


But how do medicines help in this case? I mean isn’t it a psychological disorder or behavioural disorder?! I mean you fear facing people or talking to them or fear of getting yourself embarrassed so isn’t that it requires just talk to people. Isn’t that the only remedy?!
So if one wants to come out of this they just need to start getting themselves embarrassed first & then maybe someday you’ll be lesser hesitant while talking to people!

I can’t explain the entire psychopathology to you here.
How the brain functions. Different pathways of the brain.
Neurotransmitters there actions and all.
Yes what you are saying will help again it will depend on the severity of the disorder.
Not everyone or everything can be cured by a single approach.
With all due respect It’s way more complex than you think or know.
