I have a question re social skills ....... since i have had Fybro and ME mine have gone bottoms up ..... I am aware when it happens yet can't do anything i hear myself and cringe sometimes .. other times i try to apologies but some how it comes out as if i have a mental illness :/ ... umm an example would be .. shopping i talk to myself .. ask questions etc .. then turn to some one and say something as if i had know them for 50 years .. they either keep head down or just stare at me ..... I can say things that might be in my head normally and filtered for social intercourse but they just come out i am screaming in my head ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh no please dont ... but i stand there listening to myself say it anyway .................I just want a hole to swallow me ... I have to shrug and carry on but i really really hate that part of it ........I just wondered if this was one of the unsaid symptoms .... ummm or am i going mad lmao if so watch this space . . seriously have others experienced this ??????????
