Re: feeling uncomfortable/nervous around my friends...

i felt exactly like that all through highschool..when i first started feeling that way i tried going to the library sometimes, saying i had to study or something, but i felt like such a loser doing that and i could tell my friends thought it was weird. i never felt like i fit in even though i so bady wished i did..seriously your description reminds me so much of me in highschool. just curious, have u tried getting treatment? after i started going on meds in uni (SSRIs) my SA got so much better..now with friends im actually able to relax and joke and i feel like 'myself' again.i know it doesnt work for everyone but what u suffer sounds so much like what i did so just thought id share what worked for me.good luck with getting past ur SA

Re: feeling uncomfortable/nervous around my friends...

exactly what it was like hanging out with a lot of my friends.
maybe you don't need new friends and just need to be around a few to feel comfortable? for me it's "easiest" (still difficult..) to socialize around 2-3 other friends. (depending how well i know them of course). but often when i would go to someone's house to hang out or get drunk there were more around ten people and i wouldn't speak one word around all of them.

Re: feeling uncomfortable/nervous around my friends...

i thought i was the only one like this. every day i feel uncomfortable around my friends. ever since i moved its been this way. the environment is different now and the people are different. when i talk to my friends im like "what should i say?". its not like before when i could just talk naturally to people.

Re: feeling uncomfortable/nervous around my friends...

I always feel uncomfortable and nervous around everyone, sometimes being around friends causes more anxiety than being around strangers but it depends on the situation.

Re: feeling uncomfortable/nervous around my friends...

I can get uncomfortable with friends if it's just one on one. I'm fine if it's a group of us though, basically because I can chime in whenever I want. One on one more is expected of you, I find anyways.

Re: feeling uncomfortable/nervous around my friends...

the worst part for me is when they ask me "why don't you ever talk"?

Same way

I get nervous around everyone but especially people that I am really close to. It's so wierd. I am usually fine around strangers but I think it's because the people that I am close with, I think will notice when I am "acting" nervous or seem uncomfortable, but a stranger doesnt know me to know how I usually act. I hope that makes sense.

yeah, i always end up making excuses as to why i cant hang out with them after school, like "oh i have too much homework" or "im having a family day". my friends must hate me.

I don't know what to do, Ive drifted from my friends ever since going back to college, Were at different places in our lives and I cant identify with any of them so any time theres an event, if Im able to go- Im awkward and uncomfortable and force conversation. Theres an event tonight and Im freaking out, Id rather sit right where I am and watch tv. Im at a loss

Yupp. I use to be so comfortable around my friends but now I barely hang out with them because I get anxious around them now.

Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around

WHAT CAUSES THIS?!?! I've been looking for answers for 8 years lol..I remember breaking down in front of my friends and apologizing for my awkwardness right before everyone left for college. They didn't know what to do.

And where can I meet people like you, who've gone thru this experience?!?! I'm dying to know people like this.

I'm the same but one thing I don't get is that generally most people here arent getting treated by psychologist or doctor. I just saw a doctor this week and will be seeing psychologist soon.

I'm still like this around my high school friends. I think cause they always made me feel insecure. they were never really supportive or made me think like I'm not good enough or they are better (some of them). I distanced myself from the fake ones. I'm glad I did.
