I'm 14 and I think I have social anxiety.
Whenever teachers pick on me to answer questions i go bright red my hands become extremely sweaty and clammy, my heart begins to beat really quickly and i automatically think everyone in the room is judging me. When i talk to people i don't know, i stutter a lot and feel very embarrassed that i can't talk to them without going red and finding it hard to breath. I fake being ill on some days if i have to do a presentation in front of my class because i'm terrified of people laughing at me because of the way i look.
Recently one of my maths teachers asked me a question that i couldn't answer but she just kept asking me until i worked it out, it made me cry and i found it hard to control my breathing because my heart was beating too fast. So for the next couple of lessons i would say i felt ill and stay in the girls toilets for the whole lesson in fear that i would be picked on to answer a question again. Eventually my best friend found out and told me to email my teacher and sort it out (which i did and now its fine).
But this happens all the time and it makes me cry every time i have to do something in front of a group of people.It probably doesn't help that i am very shy and don't talk to anyone other than a handful of people. i also constantly hate myself and feel worthless or not good enough for people. I always think that no one likes me and that people are just being friends with me for a joke. And that one day they will all leave me because i'm not good enough.
