scared

I have gotten to a point where I cant communicate with people as I am scared of saying the wrong thing. I feel down and irritated with myself, have been on Nuzak for a few months now.

Whenever I get alone with someone/group I cant seem to say anything...I am a secretary and this makes it hard for me.

Please help

Sounds like a form of social anxiety ( like a more extreme form of shyness ). Some people find a drug like prozac helps them, but not all. CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy )a form of counselling, is currently the best bet for gaining self-confidence and social ease
