Someone diagnose me!! LOL

This is more for fun, but I'm curious too.
I am literally terrified of attention. I HATE when people know I'm there. When I go out in public, I want to be invisible. I never used to be this way. As a teen, I was a crazy and wild town boy that didnt care basically.
But, now, I literally dont want to exist to anyone other than my family.
Even walking through crowded places can send me into a panic because I'm afraid someone will look at me, or say something to me.
Yet, here on CM, I'm fine. I dont care what people say or think. I post what I want, and am not afraid of someone disagreeing. I almost NEVER post anything anon...such a different than real

Any thoughts??

  • i agree, social anxiety. i have generalized anxiety with some social anxiety also, so i can understand some of that. it is tough, but there are underlying issues as to why you have this problem, that may be resolved with some counseling. good luck :)

  • DJsmommy answered in right on the nose! Do you ever feel that you are overwhelmed or ready to have a panic attack when even thinking about public places? To get over it there is always the med side or you can start out small like parks when you know they wont be busy and grow from there.

  • tnm786 is right, there is probably more to it and you will have to figure out exactly what it is. It could be something as simple as stress, and social enviroments trigger that stress and cause you to have anxiety.
