Aside from Therapy and medication, both of which I am doing, anyone out there have any ideas of how to manage social anxiety. I suffer so much.... all ideas welcome

live group therapy would be real helpful and I'm sure others in the group would be able to empathize, or they themselves, may even have the same problem.
The only frum therapist I know is Dr. Rashi Shapiro in Flatbush. But you can try a regular group too and see how it goes. There might be a 12 step group for this and usually the people are very kind and understanding. I belong to a 12 step group and everyone is really caring. In addition, they are free.
