Hi Westie, I'm sorry to hear things are so difficult, I think many here can relate to fear of not being liked. I hope you find the forum helpful. I think a few of our members are from the south west. It might be worth posting in the Depression and Anxiety sections as well (or Experiences if you prefer), where there tends to be more activity.

:welcome: to the forum, I hope you find it a friendly place to be.

Hi :)

Mine is not so much of a phobia but I have major issues around people not liking me.

Someone could say in a sentence that people don't dislike or hate me but could also say something else in the sentence which will make me still feel like that.

I was bullied all throughout my school years and only have a couple of friends in rl, mostly, I think because I'm scared of getting close to someone and then they hating me.

This forum is full of nice supportive people. There are quite a bunch of us from the South West but as Alice said it might be worth posting in some of the busier forums. Of course if you don't feel comfortable then carry on posting here :)

I KNOW people don't like me, I'm not a very likeable person.
