Yes. You and I got the double whammy. I wish there was an easy cure (some say there is nothing wrong with it, but I frequently found being shy and introverted uncomfortable/painful), but I think it is a process of putting yourself into uncomfortable social situations until you grow more comfortable.

I rarely get uncomfortable in social situations any more. Although I am perfectly happy to be alone.

Thank you for reading, Lena.
