Everyday tasks which most people take for granted - such as working, socialising, shopping, speaking on the telephone, even just going out of the house - might be a wearing ordeal marked by persistent feelings of anxiety and self-consciousness.Public performances or social gatherings might be out of the question.Please treat others with the RESPECT and TOLERANCE that you would hope to be treated with yourself.
As a result of this, the operators may occasionally act to remove anyone who continues to jeopardise the chatting environment.
All users are asked to respect the decisions of the ops at any given time.
If you have experienced or do experience feelings such as these, you could well have Social Anxiety or the more severe form - Social Anxiety Disorder.
Experiencing these kinds of feelings and thoughts can be very isolating, you can feel like the only person in the world with these kinds of problems, but one of the most reassuring things that many people gain from joining the SAUK community is that they are not alone, that others have experienced and continue to experience the same thoughts and feelings.
The SAUK chatroom and lounge exist to provide a WELCOMING, SUPPORTIVE, UNDERSTANDING and FRIENDLY environment for ALL of its users to enjoy.
EVERY USER of the rooms is responsible for helping to maintain a good atmosphere and behaving with consideration for others.Many people have particular worries about social situations like public speaking or talking to authority figures, or experience more general feelings of shyness or a lack of confidence.For some, however, these social anxieties and fears can become much more troubling and difficult to cope with.The chatroom operators (ops) are fellow sufferers of social anxiety and regular users of the chatrooms, who help to maintain the chatting environment according to the above principles.They can be approached by anyone who is concerned about any aspect of chat or a particular situation, and they will do their best to help resolve any problems.Whoever you talk to now, you should also visit your GP.
