Hello I'm a 24 yr old female and in nursing school. On clinical days I get nervous, I don't know how to interact well with patients or any of the student nurses in my clinical group. All my life I was told I was very shy, quiet I was a loner in grade school. I didn't have friends bc I didn't socialize. I went to a pysch she prescribed me Zoloft 50 mg for social anxiety. I'm worried about the side effects such as suicidal thoughts, and increased anxiety. What if a crazy attack happens when I'm at school? Anyone have a positive experience with Zoloft? I just got the med but I'm scared to take it now. Btw I've never taken any prescription drugs or alcohol. All I've ever wanted in life was to be normal. I want to be able to feel confident and make friends, get a job. I hate this disorder. It's ruining my life.
