Do you experience intense anxiety when faced with social or performance situations in which you feel like others are judging or watching you? Does your fear of these situations affect your daily life and functioning to the point that you either avoid doing things or endure them with severe anxiety? If so, you may be suffering with social anxiety disorder (SAD). Take the social anxiety disorder quiz and find out whether your symptoms are consistent with SAD.
