Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia) involves the fear of being humiliated or embarrassed in front of other people. It is manifested by extreme anxiety in social situations, and avoidance of social contact. Often social phobia is accompanied by depression, or substance abuse. People suffering from social phobia may: view small mistakes as more exaggerated than they really are, find blushing as painfully embarrassing, feel that all eyes are on them, fear speaking in public, dating, or talking with persons in authority, fear using public restrooms or eating out, fear talking on the phone or writing in front of others.
