So I've always thaught that my social anxiety was just something in my head and that my perceptions of other people judging me or somehow being repulsed by my presence was just my anxiety distorting my perception of reality, but the other day I was hanging out with a friend because I didn't want him to be alone on his Birthday so we went out to have a coffee and some cake and later to a local museum. Every person I talked to had this funny look on their face as if my mere presence insulted them and first I thought it might be because of Covid but they didn't react like that with anyone else including my friend. Later my friend told me that he had noticed how strange people had responded to me and even he couldn't understand why as to him I had seemed perfectly normal. I've been pretty down lately and these episodes has made me feel even worse about myself and I just can't figure out why people reacted to me that way.
