Social Anxiety Disorder, or SAD, is an anxiety disorder also known as social phobia.
Social anxiety disorder is one of the most common psychiatric disorders, and is characterized by an unreasonable fear of social situations and impaired ability to function in at least some parts of daily life.
Anxiety and self-consciousness develop from a fear of being watched, judged, and criticized by others.
People with social anxiety disorder frequently feel uncomfortable and nervous in social situations. They worry that they will do something humiliating, or that others will judge them. This fear can be so powerful that it gets in the way of doing normal everyday things.
People with social anxiety disorder worry about events weeks before they are due to take place. They are very self-conscious and feel as if they are constantly on stage.
