Hi my name is Ashley Couey, I am 24 years old. I am raising awarness to help people like me. I have had crippling social anxiety since I was 5 years old. It is a very chronic mental disorder that is very misunderstood by the public. It is a very real disorder that people like me experience in our everyday life. It is feeling persistent anxiety and fear in social interactions. The fear is so intense, it causes you to have a rapid heart beat in social situations, sweaty palms, constantly worrying people are judging your every move. It may sound like a irrational fear. But studies show people with this disorder have a higher amygdala. This shows that we have a higher fear response to social interactions. Its more than just being shy. Its very more extreme, it affects your whole life. People with this disorder miss out on so much of their life because the intense fear they feel. It holds them completely back and causes them to go into a deep depression or worse suicide. I want people to help me raise money to help people get the right therapy so they can focus on conqueing social anxiety once and for all! I want people to finally live a happy healthy life. No one deserves to feel this way and feel like their life is limited. We just want to be like normal people. I want to make a difference and help people going through what im going through. With a little help you can make my dream come true, to help people like me to finally get the help they deserve. I hope this brings attention to how severe this disorder is and how much it affects one life. Thank you for reading. LETS MAKE A DIFFERENCE! HELP THE SOCIALLY ANXIOUS! HELP THEM GET COGNITIVE BEHAVORAL THERAPY SO THEY SO THEY CAN FINALLY LIVE A NORMAL LIFE!
