maryland. mikulski is 80 years old and is retiring after 45 years in public office. she's the longest serving woman in the history of congress and was first elected back in 1976. she announced the decision last year not to seek the term again smeel be for those with social anxiety disorder, the holiday season can be pretty tough with parties and social gatherings, this is a particularly challenging time of year for them. dr. joshua weiner joins us with advice on making it through stressful events. first of all, how can someone know if they have social anxiety as opposed to just being shy? >> they are very similar. there are slight differences. somebody who is shy may be slow
they don't have this internal sense of dread. someone who has social anxiety disorder feels so emotionally uncomfortable in almost any social environment unless they are with somebody that they really, really know well and have known for a long time. these are people would are going to be nervous going to the store, talking on the phone, checking out in lines because they are worried about whether they are doing things correctly and whether they are holding up other people. these people are going to review conversations after they have a time thinking about what they are going to say before they have a conversation. they worry their mind might go blank when talking to people. they are constantly worried about doing something that is going to embarrass themselves. >> it's interesting that an adult would not have had this identified at a younger age but that does happen, right? >> it does happen. generally those who have had this as an adult have had it for years and have been dealing with it, muddling through.
so that's at around the age where people start to realize, you know what, people are judging other people, people do talk about other people and so that's really when people start to get very, very uncomfortable and inhibited in social situations. >> people with social anxiety disorder probably look for ways to calm themselves down when they are going into a situation, drugs, alcohol perhaps. does that happen often? >> absolutely. so, you know, people try to self-medicate and that's what people will dread going to holiday parties and the only way they feel they can get through it is if they start hitting the drinks. they are going to pound those drinks so they can feel more comfortable. of course, that's not a good idea and hopefully they can finds other ways to get help so they don't rely on drugs and alcohol. the other thing is, they are at a higher risk of developing depression.
see somebody depressed, one of the first things i'm assessing for is social anxiety disorder and a lot of kids develop it as a result of having social anxiety because they don't feel good socially. they feel like losers, they look around, see other people seemingly comfortable and socializing, having friends and they think, what's wrong with me? >> so what kind of help is available for people with this anxiety disorder? >> as normal, it comes down to a combination of therapy and medication, which is the norm when so when you have therapy, you're talking about cognitive behavioral therapy, a specific type of therapy where you get people to do what they normally do and when it comes to medication, you're typically using the antidepressants and these medications can be helpful. now, in general, it's recommended that you start with therapy and then go to
with social anxiety disorder are so nervous about going to therapy that they refuse to go to therapy because the focus is going to be on them in therapy. if you're not willing to do that, at least turn to the medications. the medications do work well. they are well-tolerated. the interesting thing about medication is oftentimes they will make you start to feel comfortable in situations that you were previously uncomfortable in so you're kind of naturally going through behavioral therapy because you're doing the things you medicine and your brain has realized i can do these things without worrying about anything bad happening. >> it's a good thing we're talking about it because those people experiencing this kind of anxiety will know i'm not the only person that feels like this and maybe they will seek some help. >> sure hope so. >> thanks a lot. >> back to you. the most downloaded music of the year in a preview of "hairspray live" is on nbc tonight. a young star who nearly
