I tried seeing a therapist to cure my pathological facial blushing problem along with all the social phobia that came about because of it. He put me on meds and I paid him $330 for that.....waste of money. I always thought to myself if I got this surgical procedure called "Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy", then it would stop my blushing and my social phobia would wash away as well. The therapist told me that it would be wrong for me to assume that, as well as a handful of other people. Well, today (05/08/09) I went through with the surgical procedure. I think it has cured me because I went out in public and didn't blush in front of people. And almost immediately I could feel my social anxiety start washing away. The anxiety is still there, but I'm 99% certain that it will go away as soon as my though process gets reprogrammed that I will no longer blush in front of people anymore. Today feels like it is the start of my new life. I'm happy and relieved.
