    First of I must say he is lucky to have found someone so understand , who wants to help him! I can relate to what your boyfriend is suffering with! I went though something like this a few years ago! Its good he has admitted there is a problem! It shows he wants to over come this! The key to this is making a list of goals he wants to do where he will be around people! e!g! a few close trusted friends over for lunch! Then slowly he could cross of his list! The best thing to do is to get him to seek help from the doctor! He may respond better to tablets or talking theapy! Im not sure if its hereditary, but my dad finds it differecult to be around people at events! I hope things improve for you, dont feel guilty for pushing him, I t must be hard for you to explain to family where he is at events! Talk to him and tell him there is no harm in seeking help for it! He doesnt have to be a prisoner in his own safe hidden away world! Good Luck
