david90 Posted August 8, 2008 Report Share Posted August 8, 2008 (edited) I have an avoidance disorder and I get anxious around people. I've been reading this articlehttp://www.mentalhelp.net/poc/view_doc.php?type=doc&id=9738&cn=353and it is saying that exposure therapy works because of habituation. I have been around people for many years (daily interaction) yet my level of anxiety is still somewhat the same. Why is that? For some reasons I think finding the answer to this question will help me understand my problem better. I think the reasons why I'm anxious around people is that I'm afriad of rejection but I should have "habituated" through many years of interacting with people.Thanks Edited August 8, 2008 by david90 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
