I’m afraid to let people look into my eyes. Has anyone had this feeling and overcame it? Will increase in meds help?
I once told a therapist that the eye balls were windows to the brain. Because I have this too. It did get better but took a long time.
I worry about the exact same thing! I usually avoid eye contact, or i’ll wear my sunglasses when talking to people. The medication has helped with this, but i still worry at times.
It’s why I don’t like eye contact. I feel it opens me up to much, they can read me to easily, learn things about me I don’t want them too.
I’ve had to practice, and still struggle to force myself. Have to remind myself it’s just the illness
I have this same problem sometimes. When I’m experiencing paranoid thought broadcasting and thought insertion, I don’t look directly into people’s faces or into their eyes. It helps a wee bit.
Yes I did when I was in hospital once.
I had to wear sunglasses to feel comfortable talking to people.
It went away after a while
