Hardest Problem I Have Had to Deal With

I have had problems with varying degrees of social anxiety my whole life, but it probably got progressively worse when I graduated from high school 15 years ago. I have problems with low self-esteem and depression which just makes the problem worse. I don't like to talk on the phone and have trouble even socializing with my family on holidays. I have been to therapy off and on over the years, but it doesn't seem to help. I have been trying to get involved with some groups from meetup.com. I have met some nice people from a hiking group, but we only meet about once a month. Hopefully over time I can overcome this by pushing myself to go out and meet people and getting involved with more groups.
