It is so hard for me to talk to my own sister, let alone strangers. I guess this is the crazy, twisted irony of having something like SA, you want friends and want to be included, but you don't. I want to have friends and be social and have a life, but at the same time I am so scared that nobody will like me and I will be judged and whatever comes out of my mouth will be ridiculed and laughed at. It's why I can't really speak to my own family much, same fears.
Has anyone gotten past this kind of fear?
