Make it an experiment & find ways of socializing that you can enjoy. Having regular friends is less stressful than meeting strangers, right? Standing around at a party like working for a volunteer group right? Curing social anxiety is mainly practice & building confidence by opening your eyes. Everyone's got a little awkwardness & few will judge you harshly. You're doing fine !
