Hi guys. I don't want to sound negative but this is for the people that haven't been successful in their dealings with trying to overcome this awful condition. I have been trying to address my issues for over 8 years now. I have tried councilling, hypnosis and been on the workshop. I have a mild case of paresis but still enough to cause me a problem when it comes to using a public restroom. I am strong willed and have gave up my nicotine addiction after 16 years but I am at a loss with trying to perform in front of someone else. My own personal take on the workshops is that yes it is great the progress you can make but everyone else is in the same boat as you so you know that the person next to you isn't judgemental as they have their own demons to deal with.
want i want to say is find your own level that your comfortable with and don't be despondent if you don't make your end goal.
