Hi Trees - I think a number of us tend to be quite hard on ourselves - I know I do too. I've had to learn to accept that my ability to cope would be better at some times than others - often because of unrelated stresses in my life affecting my ability to handle anxiety. Didn't someone once say "Progress is never a straight line"? I do think that the more we learn about ourselves and how our bodies tick with regards to paruresis, the more likely we are to be able to control it instead of it controlling us.
