hi kellydiane, how are you going?
you sound a lot like me so i know how you feel when you are a social person who ends up with these types of fears. I think that it doesnt matter much what caused it but just to focus on solutions and taking small steps. A counsellor will really help you to do this. I know it is really really hard to do but try to find some things to distract your thoughts like reading or drawing etc because believe me obsessing over the problem and thinking about it all the time doesnt help!! I made that mistake!! I am now improving I still feel anxious a lot but I am not letting it stop me from doing some things. All the very best too you
