Can't Relax and Don't Enjoy Anything...

Hello,

I am new here.  I am trying to find other people that can relate.  I don't go out much and whenever I do, I don't seem to enjoy it.  I feel tight and uncomfortable and seem to get really tired afterwards, almost like it stressed me out so much that it caused me to be tired.  I recently went to a family get together which was very stressful for me, only to be told later that I don't seem comfortable in my own skin.  Of course, this made me feel worse. 

Does anyone else out there just feel like they don't belong or just don't enjoy anything ?  People don't understand that if you feel terrible when you go out and try to be social, it just doesn't seem worth it.  When this happens over and over again, you just give up.

Yeah sometimes I feel better when I socialize, but most of the time cause I'm not used to doing it I come home with a bundle of nerves. Ever read the book how to win friends and influence people?

Yep I'm the same way....it keeps me from doing alot. My friends go out and want me to go but I don't feel comfortable...I get nervous and become afraid...
