Found this on the Zoloft website...this is confusing as this is also part of the perfectionist attitude for codependency...so how does one assess the difference? I am trying to figure out if I really want to take anti-d's.

If you have social anxiety disorder, you often get very nervous around other people. It feels like everyone is watching you and judging you. You’re afraid of making a mistake, or looking like a fool. You will do all you can to keep that from happening. You may even avoid certain people, places or social events.

I think this is about extremes and frequency. I don't think this is a definition of codependency. You can be codependent and comfortable around people. Being codependent is really about putting the focus out there on other people rather than on yourself. It doesn't necessarily mean you will do all you can to keep from looking like a fool like with social anxiety disorder.

From what I've learned, codependency is more about letting the actions and feelings of other dictate your actions and feelings. For example, the wife of an alcoholic has a happy day if her husband is happy and sober, and when he is upset or drunk, she is upset. She waits to see how he feels before she decides how she feels. She is not in charge of her own feelings.

With social anxiety, you worry about what other people think about you (I think) and not about what they themselves are feeling.

Excellent distinction sc13. This explains it well. Ugh, I do this with my boss at my office. And have done this in past relationships. It is nice to be moving towards being whole again.
