My longtime friend Pat joins me for this episode! He had social anxiety in high school when I knew him, which I did not know at all because of how vibrant his social life seemed, and has come a long way. Today, he is gainfully employed, married, and has kids.

The questions I will ask him today include:

  • When did you feel you had SA?
  • Did your parents or friends know?
  • My perception of him vs the SA reality
  • Did you use therapy, drugs, or have a mentor to help you?
  • Explain “it never really goes away, you learn to deal with it”
