Who Does This Define?

I think someone here, very nearby, meets many of these criteria. Either that, or this person is a sociopathic axe-murderer lying in wait.

Read the list below, and let me know who you think it defines. There is no "right" answer.

http://www.socialanxietyinstitute.org/define.html
People with social anxiety disorder usually experience significant emotional distress in the following situations:
Being introduced to other people

Being teased or criticized

Being the center of attention

Being watched while doing something

Meeting people in authority ("important people")

Most social encounters, especially with strangers

Going around the room (or table) in a circle and having to say something

Interpersonal relationships, whether friendships or romantic
This list is certainly not a complete list of symptoms -- other feelings have been associated with social anxiety as well.

The physiological manifestations that accompany social anxiety may include intense fear, racing heart, turning red or blushing, excessive sweating, dry throat and mouth, trembling, swallowing with difficulty, and muscle twitches, particularly about the face and neck.

Constant, intense anxiety that does not go away is the most common feature.

I said "social anxiety", not "lithium imbalance".

I hate to say this, but between his hair style and the colors of his shirt, he goes quite nicely with my avatar.

Be nice to Nick this week. All the rehab facilities in Malibu have had to be evacuated due to the wildfire.

I predict a Xanax shortage in SoCal this week.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
