Re: Who here has Social Anxiety/Phobia or exhibit the symptms of it?
I'm a weird one I guess. I feel perfectly well with my closest friends and people who I've just met (I've been called a "social butterfly" by quite a few
) but it's my simple friends that I struggle most with.
I get really tense when I don't have anything to talk about with them and the awkward (for me) silence just kills me.
And then sometimes I feel like something is wrong with me because I see some people on a very frequent basis but can't get any closer with them but one can't be friends with everybody I guess.
And even if my left depended on it, I could never properly public speak without studdering, getting nervous and completely losing control over myself.
And the telephone thing as well
I get nervous when I hear the vibration (I pretty much have ringtone-phobia) but I'm usually fine unless it's someone who usually doesn't call me, then I can get kind of tight.
