I do this with ppl that arent my family.
If the social interaction is necessary; I usually try to specifically plan things out, before I talk, like in a job interview. I just try to be honest, professional, and serious. but if the social interaction is unnecessary; I usually try to avoid it because of my paranoid sz. I don’t really obsess over things that I know I’m bad at.
Its hard to avoid it if its spontaneous . it sux cuz i used to be a funny guy. I was the leader of my clique.
Yes, every interaction I have I feel very anxious and go over everything I said multiple times and wonder if I looked scary or ugly.
for me; having no social interaction is safer than forcing a response in a spontaneous unnecessary social interaction, sometimes. doesn’t matter how I try to avoid the interaction, the ends usually justify the means.
I usually say something awkward in conversations. I don’t know why it happens. I’m not a very good communicator.
Yes! With halloween coming up and real plans forming for me for the first time in months, I’m losing it. I’m sooo scared.
I have so much social anxiety its not even funny. I take anxiety meds but I only take a small dose otherwise I feel like I’m drunk and I hate it.
Omg it’s horrible for me…someone will say something to me and I’ll respond and it must come out so horribly wrong they just look at me strangely and then say nothing…and then I am angry with myself the rest of the day.
It could ruin my whole day
same here, it sucks
I hate the random encounter…this ain’t final fantasy…I’m not gonna level up from this conversation…I hate running into people I USTA work with…they always ask where I’m working now…like damnit I know their just making conversation but its annoying…
It isn’t? I always look at it like it is.
Lol I USTa be an adventurer like you until I took an arrow to the knee…
I don’t in general. But today I have been.
I have pretty decent social skills, I am a good communicator I have a a difficulty labeling my feelings tho but it doesn’t effect my communication skills
I am extremely self conscious. It’s a blessing and a curse. It gives me loads of stress for tiny things, but it’s kept me out of mental hospitals because I always knew what not to do to avoid disturbing people. I’m also addicted to imagining conversations before I do them. Not just because I’m insecure, but because my imagination always presents those people as much more rational, which i LOVE, ha.
Constantly obsessing. I get random flashbacks and relive my errors from years back. I can’t control it, and it upsets me a lot.
I do my best to avoid other humans.
