Great Question: Put yourself in social situations that you enjoy. Some people do better in quieter social settings. Also depression can worsen social anxiety. It's always good to seek a psychiatric evaluation so you can understand why you're anxious and what has led to the loss of humor in your life. Counseling and sometimes medication can help. Hope this answer helps.

May help: It may be a helpful adjunct but if the ptsd is severe, i would not rely on it as a mono-therapy.
