Social Anxiety Disorder and Agoraphobia are often confused, just as "anxiety attacks" and "panic attacks" are. The clinical symptoms of SAD don't include panic attacks, although one can experience anxiety attacks.
I thought that SAD was seasonal affective disorder. Anyway, welcome. Isolation, solitude, and misanthropy are gifts from the Devil. Use them.
Thank you for the welcome, Shade.
Just to clarify, most people with social anxiety disorder don't dislike
people, they fear situations that involve people
. And, I doubt that anyone with the condition would ever see forced isolation or solitude as a 'gift'.
As for the acronym SAD, it had been used for both conditions. I'm now seeing "SAnD" used for social anxiety disorder, and I'm happy to see the differentiation made.
