I am in my late teenage years and I have social anxiety. I have noticed that my sensitivity towards other peoples comments has become gradually worse over time. When I was younger i.e. a high school student, I never used to really take on board what people said but I remember having anxiety. Nowadays I take offence to almost every comment made about me or every negative situation I find myself in. I feel it is not normal to have this level of sensitivity. I'll give some examples:
Yesterday I got served at my local shop. The assistant did not use any manners such as please or thankyou and I took it extremely personal and felt like the assistant was targeting me and was being polite to everyone else. I felt angry as well as anxious. Maybe its because I have had previous experiences where I have actually been discriminated like this for no reason at all?
