    S2. E20. Why I Take Medication for Social Anxiety

    S2. E20. Why I Take Medication for Social Anxiety

    *Super important disclaimer: This post is not meant to influence your medication decisions one way or another. I just remember wishing I could find some first-person accounts of what life was like before and during medication. That's all this is. At all times, trust your doctor's expertise over mine.*
    Medication is not a magical cure-all. But for me, it's been a science-backed help-a-lot.
    I was afraid to take medication because of the potential side effects I read about online... until I realized that untreated anxiety had its OWN side effects, and those side effects sucked.

    This episode shares some insight into my medication journey and opens the floor to questions and discussion!

    S2. E19. How courage, connection, and practice help this dad chip away at social anxiety [Social Anxiety Besties Club interview: Chris]

    S2. E19. How courage, connection, and practice help this dad chip away at social anxiety [Social Anxiety Besties Club interview: Chris]

    Today you'll be hearing from Chris, a 29-year-old husband, dad, and software developer.

    Chris shares how he has had social anxiety and OCD since high school, and how he pushes himself to incorporate mini-exposures and "experiments" into his busy day-to-day life as a dad.

    He also candidly discusses how social anxiety impacts his parenting and what it was like to tell his wife about his anxiety and depression.

    We touch on sweating as well, which I know many listeners will find reassuring (nope, it's super not just you).

    E2. S16. The One Where an Awesome Introvert Brings Together 12 Other Awesome Introverts

    E2. S16. The One Where an Awesome Introvert Brings Together 12 Other Awesome Introverts

    A warm welcome back to Roxana! Roxana (@honestrox and @growintrovert) has organized a truly special online summit to introverts. It's totally free and super high-value. And I had the honour of being asked to speak on how to lead a community when you have social anxiety. In today's episode, we talk about all the summit and what's it been like for Roxana to organize it behind-the-scenes as an introvert with social anxiety herself.  SUMMIT DETAILS: The summit runs from July 4th-9th, and I will be there to talk about how to lead a community when you have social anxiety, because having social anxiety doesn't mean we can't or don't want to be leaders! The sessions are pre-recorded, so you don’t need to wake up at 3:00 AM to watch (hurray!).  I’ll be joined by other amazing introverted leaders who are making an impact in their space, and I would love for you to hear all the insightful conversations that are going to take place. And it's totally free with the option to purchase lifetime access to replays! CLICK HERE TO REGISTER!* :) All you have to do is register here https://sadiehall--honestrox.thrivecart.com/sadie-hall-online-summit-discount/ and that’s it! *this is an affiliate link, which means that if you upgrade to lifetime access to the summit, I'll get a small commission at no extra cost to you. thank you so much!

Sadie is the friend we all need

I cannot say enough good things about this podcast. I’ve listened for over a year now, and I can’t count all the ways it has helped me to learn more about myself. Sadie gets us. She truly cares about helping others with social anxiety.
