My social phobia is so severe. I don't know if there is something else wrong with me other than bipolar. I get this feeling that I am so shy..my mind goes blank. I can hardly look up or speak to people. I fidget with my hands out of nervousness. I feel like a small child. I really almost feel like I turn into a child whenever dealing with people. That they are all adults & I have no idea what they are talking about. I freeze and drift off in my mind. Its really weird and a scary feeling. I wish I could fully get over these feelings because its ruining my life. I always feel like a little child who is so shy & needs to hide and needs protection from my parents. But I am 30! This is not even a joke. I know I am a loser. I hope to get over this. Does anyone know these feelings? I am working with my therapist on this and its really hard. I don't know if this is only social phobia or something else.
