That's . . . actually quite impressive.
I think just giving a label to your problems can help. Confusion and inability to articulate your suffering leads to increased suffering and isolation.

Social phobia and generalized anxiety disorder is so much easier to explain to oneself than vague terms like crippling shyness or how even good excitement can lead to hell.
Dealing with that inner voice with psychological techniques should be possible at real world TL 6 or any time with proper types of culture.
