      I have to plan for every scenario before i commit to an action, whatever it may be. My mind will not let me "wing" interactions, errands, or events. My general anxiety has gotten worse since I've had a child since now my mind wanders to every negative scenario of her getting hurt. It makes me not want to leave the house

      i don’t leave my room. i can’t drive, no job, no friends, im 22 and i can’t make doctors appointments on my own and need a parent to go with me, i had to do online school sophomore-senior year, i refuse to go to actual college so i take online classes. like becca said ^ eventually when i do graduate, i will not walk across the stage because i am terrified of everyone.

      It makes it really difficult to make new friends or just open up to people. I want to say something but my social anxiety doesn’t let my words come out. I want to make new friends but my social anxiety tells me that they’re interested is being my friends. It feels as if people are not interested in becoming friends, it feels like your trapped.

      It prevents me from doing everyday tasks/taking care of myself/doing anything when others are around, even if I know the people around me I still struggle badly with it. It causes me to not eat or have problems sleeping most of the time and it also causes me to be afraid to go out in any public place by myself.

      I can’t have a in person conversation without thinking the other person is thinking bad stuff about me or if it’s good. I just worry what they are thinking

      Affects my every day living. I won't go in stores by myself i dont order my own food when out to eat. When i graduated high school i didn't even go to my graduation because i didnt want to have so many people watch me walk across stage to get my diploma
