Nerves Buzzing

NOt sure why but I get this tense feeling anytime I'm around a group of say 8 or more and having to find a way to talk about something.  I talk about my friend standing next to me to avoid confrontation.  "yeah I'm with stupid." It feels like confrontation to me.  Like I'm on stage when someone I don't know very well talks to me. Mingling ha what's that? I'm indifferent.  I care about you as a person, but you brag.  I don't care about your successes it's what you've done in your own strength. How blessed are you really? Why don't you be transparent and talk about "life."  I go home thinking oh how rude of me, my manners suck, or I interrupted, or I made fun of.  I don't know how to talk to people.  People are so superfiscial how can you trust do you keep all conversation simple?  I hate job interviews too.  Inside I'm like a ball of yarn I can't wait to get home to unravvel my nerves because I have a ball of it in my stomach.  Let's laugh for a while at how stupid we can be that will help.

I too have social anxiety problems. I just think about being where someone can see me and I start to sweat, shake & my mind goes blank. Then when I do have to be around people I can't think straight etc. I hate it. I only go out at night if I can help it. But I also know that's not the way to deal with it. I have to find a dr to help. I get tired of being a prisoner of my own mind. Please try to find some one to help you too. Good luck and know you are not alone.
