Don't feel so upset... I have the same problems, but I just take it one day at a time. I say stupid things all the time I just don't let it get to me. (Geez, why did anybody reply to this post? I know this is a "shy" forum, but come on people! there"s no need to be THAT shy!)

Silent Shadow, do you mean why DIDN'T anybody reply? Ok... Going with that interpretation: i dunno. Weird, huh?
Anyway... Diane, if you're still reading this, I have to say that I haven't gotten help myself, but from what I've read other places and in other threads, there are ways to treat your shyness without taking pills that with unbearable side effects. First there's therapy; and if that doesn't help enough, there're a number of different pills you might be asked to try, which have different side effects that can vary from one person to another. Like I said, though; I haven't much personal insight into this question, so for an opinion based in experience, you might have to sift through some of the other threads on this site.
I hope you've been adjusting well to your new home since you last posted, and that you've found something--whether internal or external--to safely help you to overcome your shyness!
