Social anxiety disorder

    I have written a common app essay about my social anxiety disorder and how I overcame it and how it made me stronger but I am bit confused that whether this topic will be apt for college essay.I am thinking it might have a negative impact on my profile but I also want to write about it because it was the major obstacle of my life that I overcome without any medication.
    so please help any hep appreciated .
    thanks in advance .

    It is my experience that the less I care about my "profile", the happier I feel. If you are inclined to write about this for your college essay, I would do it. You accomplished something noteworthy, no reason to be ashamed of it.
