paxil As it turns out, there is a “cure” for shyness. Seth Stevenson’s story “Extroverted Like Me” is a journey into the world of coolness through chemical aids but it quickly turns into a cautionary tale for those willing to overcome their social awkwardness through the use of mood-altering drugs.

    It’s amazing how many people in the US and Canada are on these pills. I always thought they were only given to clinically depressed people, but it turns out everyone’s on them. Is winter too long? Take a pill. Are you lonely? Take a pill. Are you shy? Take a pill.
