I really worry sometimes about how long my issue of people has been going on I mean im 30 now and im still pretty much the same as when i was a teenager, i mean im scared in almost all social situations to the point I will avoid them if possible and if i dont avoid them its only because im worrying that i will upset the other person and they wont want to see me again.
Certain people seem to make me more anxious than others i dont know if its there personality or what? I mean one of my family members partner I feel really uncomfortable around her and it doesnt matter how much i see her i just feel panicky and cant listen to what they are saying just wishing the time would fly by so i can be on my own again. I'm lonely most of the time because i just feel excruciatingly uncomfortable around most people including my family.
I'm not house bound but only really go out either with someone or if i have somewhere to go, i find it difficult to just say go out for a walk because i dont have a goal as to where im going i feel more anxious.
Could anyone tell me how long they have experienced there social anxiety or agrophobia or both for and to what degrees?
Thanks for reading
