I want to have friends but I don't want to put in the effort

Sorry if this is the wrong place to put this, I wasn't really sure where else it would fit and technically I have been diagnosed with social anxiety. Anyway, today my issue is that I don't get myself at all. I'm a walking contradiction. On the one hand, I'm terrified of winding up old and alone, on the other I tend to avoid human interaction and be extremely introverted. It's like I want to have ...

Why do I get embarrassed by my body's biological needs?

Does anyone else feel this way? It seems like I easily get embarrassed by my body's biological needs. For example, if my stomach growls around others. I suppose that one's fairly common, but it seems strange to me. Why get embarrassed over something you have no control over? Why get embarrassed about being hungry? I know it's irrational, yet I get embarrassed anyway and try to hide it. This also goes for other biological needs, ...

I have social phobia.

I have a lot of phobias, social phobia is just one of many. I do not easily like socialising at all. I am not too averse to it, but I have had so many bad experiences socially that I am not so well now. Every social situation seems to turn to catastrophe.

I have social anxiety?

Hey

So recently my mum got diagnosed with schizophrenia and I got diagnosed with general anxiety but I don’t think I have that because the only thing I’m scared of is people. It’s like i can’t walk down the street I feel like everyone’s watching my facial expressions or they can tell I’m anxious/ not reacting normally. CCTV freaks me out too. I avoid talking to people because I’ll get stuck in a conversation and ...

I’m awkwardly anxious around the opposite sex

I’m a twenty year old male student living in southern Germany and I’m awkwardly anxious around the opposite sex. You see, throughout my whole school time I was subject to bullying or being made fun of. I never managed to stand up against it or somehow manage to build up some self-esteem. Instead most of the times I started to isolate myself and even started to see those who didn’t have anything against as enemies. ...

I feel like I'm in a paradox

I am so anxious right now, all I want to do is sleep, watch porn and read the bible.

When I go around my mom all she does is bring up how I was bullied and it shouldn't effect me.

This just causes me to become disturbed, anxious and I start hating everyone...

I'm not a schizoid or a misanthropist. I don't know what to do, My mom is like a broken record.

I can't ...

Social Anxiety a klonopin withdrawal symptom?

Hello everyone,

I'm new to these forums but I have a question regarding klonopin withdrawal. I started taking klonopin back in January of 2018 because I was unable to sleep. I have long had sleep problems but at this time I went 2 weeks without even a minute of sleep so I was at my wits end and klonopin was the only thing that worked. Anyway, I took it for 11 days straight and then ...
