Alone i am an assembly line. Now the second i even think someone is going to near i freeze up and lose ability to continue. It does not matter the comfort level of the person in my experience. In social gatherings i have been questioned for tourettes syndrome, by employers, family, friends, ect. I also have extremely problems with eye contact. I could be in mid conversation on a subject i know very well and lose to a stutter.
But the post i am making is to find more info about my inability to function near other people... i will be held back from brushing my teeth, changing my socks, grabbing a clean glass, or even lack of appetite for days on end. I have found immense help from the cubensis family of mushrooms.

Sounds like we could be dealing with a social anxiety type of issue, friend.

No, I mean the anxiety disorder known as Social Anxiety Disorder or Social Phobia. It can be debilitating for a lot of people - I don't know about the plants though, they seem to be coping okay (joke). Some of the symptoms you mentioned sound like social anxiety. I'm not a doctor though, but it's something you might want to look into.

Thanks.
