    Oooh, good thread topic!

    I'd say around 13-15. One day I just became really self-conscious about sounding "stupid," even around friends I'd known for years. It all went down hill from there - to the classic symptoms like feeling like everyone was looking at me when I walked into a room, or whenever someone laughed it was because of me. Awful times!

    I'm so glad that I've finally gotten past that. I credit age, experience and my job - it's very social, and has given me a lot of exposure.

    I still have anxiety, but I've come a long way. I'm pretty functional.

    I can recall being overwhelmed by anxiety in elementary school..even over little things. It did not become unmanageable until my early twenties. I missed out on my twenties and all the fun peers seem to have had/ are having.

    My general issues with anxiety started when I was 11. My issues with social anxiety started my freshman year of HS, when I was 13-14.

    I was always shy, but I don't think I really had social anxiety until 17 or 18.

    I had anxiety and OCD type issues since I was about 8, but I didn't develop severe anxiety until just after I graduated college, so I answered 18-25.

    It stayed with me for quite a few years, until I started taking Paxil. Now it's quite a bit better.

    Not until after I graduated high school. Before then I was just shy and reserved.

    As long as I can recall although it got noticeably bad during and after high school. I am better now than I was in my 20s but still have anxiety issues. And I believe I always will. It's learning how to deal with them, I do alright for the most part. But there is plenty of room for improvement.
