See counselor: It's important to reach out to a counselor/therapist in your area for help. Plan on seeing that person once a week until you have some strategies. Often, hypnotherapy can be very useful!

Social Anxiety: You need someone to help you make the gradual steps in reducing your anxiety around others. Supportive psychotherapy can be very successful in helping you feel more comfortable around other people. It is very hard to do without support, and with support requires some level of discomfort early in the efforts to get to a place where your social anxiety is reduced. Takes some determination.
