I suffer from a condition called anthropophobia. It is different that social phobia. It is a rare phobia where the sufferer is afraid of other people. I have no friends besides my sister. I am estranged from my family. I was abused physically, sexually, financially, and emotionally throughout my childhood up until my late twenties. I was bullied and jumped many times throughout my life, the most recent being last year. People scare me. I can't even make eye contact with others. I especially avoid eye contact with angry people. I am afraid they will say someting rude or attack me. I can't be around groups of people with out having a panick attack. I get nervous and shaky when someone stares at me too long. I hate feeling weak. I hate people knowing I'm afraid of them. I try to hide it and I fail. It hurts being afraid of what you need the most. I need friends. I need a loving family. I need a loving partner. Does anyone else have this weird fear?
