Hi,

I’m finding it really difficult to be around and talk to people. I find I’ve nothing to say anymore. I’ve gone from a sociable person to someone who wants to escape from everyone.

Hi Laura,
Welcome to the forum,
Sorry you are struggling, here to listen. Therapy might help you.
Social anxiety isn't nice, hope you can find ways to overcome it.
Take care

Yes I agree with Mayflower , it is best to talk with your GP and they can help you move forwards to improve your mental wellbeing and maybe therapy if you feel you need it. :)

Hey there Laura, welcome to the forum!

I feel exactly the same way as you...I get a bit of social anxiety around crowds and also feel I have nothing to say to people....I just feel lost for words more than half the time! :(

Hi , how long have you felt this way , is it a recent thing or have you had a traumatic episode in you life which has caused you to feel this way ?

Hi,

There have been a number of traumatic events unfortunately. It upsets me to even write them down so sorry for not sharing.

I was referred to Occupational Health at work for too many sick absences and for crying so much at work. But when it came to the appointment I just said I was fine now because I didn’t want talk about anything.

I’m frightened of going to work tomorrow in case I crack. Can’t stop shaking today.
