yes, i have, i currently have one right now.
yes, i am aware of that, that is what i am talking about. they need to be tested.
i think that (please note this is my opinion, i don't want you to blow up on me) taking a quiz from your psychiatrist or your doctor, etc. is the best way to go. using that as proof, i guess.
or by using a professional test on the internet, not like a random one.
i do think someone can have social anxiety, self diagnose, and no further evidence. the reason why i left that comment was because i have had friends who would fake social anxiety to get attention, and i know that that was the case. they would go up and talk to random people perfectly, hug random people, be funny and loud with people they met 2 days ago, etc.
yes, i agree. 100%
for example, Asperger. it is very rare and people that self diagnose probably don't have it. people with it are usually informed at a young age.
