Hi everybody! This is my first time here and I was just hoping to get some advice from ppl outside of whom I know. I noticed that my social anxiety began after high school. During high school, I played sports and was very sociable. But now that high school is over, it's a totally different atmosphere. Sometimes I can be social but most of the time I choose not to be. My boyfriend is very social and talks to anybody who walks by us. When it comes to me having to meet new people, this rush of anxiety hits me and I get so awkward when talking to people. Most of the time I'm really good at hiding it, but I still feel like people can feel that energy from me.
Hi everyone. It feels so quiet in my head and I feel so lonely. I am to shy to go out and make friends.
I obsess on whatever I have said to anyone all day long. My only relief is sleep which of course is difficult because I am ruminating on whatever I did earlier. It is driving me nuts and even suicidal.
