I Feel Awkward In A Group Of People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 76 People

    I take a special ed class of like 15 people

    I Hate It...

    It's weird, I've never liked groups of people. I get so nervous and self-conscious, and I always find myself trying to make myself invisible so nobody will talk to me. At the same time, I kind of wish somebody would talk to me so I wouldn't feel left out. XD Especially with...
