    • Matt, here are some facts. This opens up a whole other market. Many folks will not admit that they are depressed. But would agree they may have some SOCIAL ANXIETY issues. I wouldn't hesitate to ask my physician.

      Misdiagnosis and undertreatment of anxiety disorders costs the nation billions of dollars annually.

      Anxiety disorders cost the U.S. more than $42 billion a year, according to "The Economic Burden of Anxiety Disorders," a study commissioned by the ADAA and based on data gathered by the association and published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.
      More than $22.84 billion is associated with the repeated use of healthcare services, as those with anxiety disorders seek relief for symptoms that mimic physical illnesses.
      People with an anxiety disorder are three-to-five times more likely to go to the doctor and six times more likely to be hospitalized for psychiatric disorders than non-sufferers.
