Hi my name isDiana & I am 44 yo. I suffer from social anxiety. Ive been going thru this since I was a little girl I first experienced it At 5 yo & I can't grow out of it. It's an awful feeling. I tremble (shaky) when I walk or when I'm in a public place; racing thoughts, racing heart, watery eyes, I stutter when I talk; I don't eye contact I look down or look away; I can't make friends; unable to start a conversation; I feel that I'm going to ask a stupid question & that individual may laugh or may make me look stupid; & I also feel that someone is staring or talking about me. Does anyone on here go through social anxiety? & What are your experiences & How can I break out of it? Any advice or ideas?
