Yeah, like walking across the school campus is almost painful. Some mornings I actually didn't go to class because I didn't want to have to walk to class.

I get this. But I'm pretty sure it happens to "normal" people too, at least it seems to by their body language. It just happens when you're not comfortable with your surroundings, which happens to everyone, but obviously SA sufferers aren't comfortable in many places... I've found it helps to just think about something you like, or just observing your surroundings will take your mind off of it.

I worry about my left arm not swinging as much as my right and I consciously try to make them swing evenly.

Yeah, I feel weird whenever I'm walking in public, but only if I'm not carrying around a handbag. I feel better if I'm carrying something, anything, usually my keys or cell, in my hands because I don't know what to do with my hands when I walk.

Where am I going and why am I in this little handbasket?

Maybe we walk funny cause we don't know where we're going.
Like a sitcom with VERY high ratings....everybody wants to see what the Millennium Man is cookin' in his latest episode. On today's show, he trips on his briefcase and out pops his headphones!

Me too.. It only happens to me when I don't wear long sleeved shirts or jackets. Like if I wear just a shirt or tank top I'll think about the way I swing my arms or if I'm slouching. but when I have a jacket or long sleeved shirt I just feel more comfortable and I don't really think about it. Also if I'm carrying something, that helps too.

Well, it's good to know that you are not alone. It's bad that one worries about this aspect so much.

same problem


i have the same problem and only in school it happens. I feel like everyones looking at me and will soon make fun of me for something small. Ialso have the problem of sticking my chest out to much i dont know why. I do it aoutmatically most of the times i dont even realize when my chest is puffed out. Thats why i dont like wearing shirts cause it makes it seem so obvious and it gives off an image as if i am some kid of tough guy. Which i dont want people to percieve me that way i'm trying to get a physcologist because i have read that this problem is physcological issue. I really want to walk normal

I developed this problem in my early teens, and it persisted until only a few years ago. Somehow the problem disappeared, and I no longer have this problem, at least in any significant measure. I have no idea how I got it to go away. Maybe all my other ridiculous anxieties just got so powerful that there was no room left for that one.

lol yes!!! I feel so awkward when I walk. I think about it too much and forget how to walk normal. I'm not super embarassed about it, so it's kind of funny to me.

I've always felt weird walking. People have also told me I have this weird limp which just makes me more self-conscious. Now, I focus on my walk whenever I go anywhere. I think I've improved. At least my gf tells me so.

Yea I do too. I have a naturally fast walk so I worry about looking like I'm always in a rush. And I absolutely hate getting up during the movies, not really because I hate missing the movie, but because I'm afraid a.) I might trip and fall down the stairs or b.) I'll look so stupid walking down the stairs and everyone's looking at me (even though most of them are probably concentrating on the movie, I feel like everyone's concentrating on me.) I also hate walking into class late because it's like everyone's eyes are on me.

Oh yep me too! It is even worse if there is a group that is looking in my direction. I am clumsy too so that doesn't help me at all either... I keep thinking 'what if I trip!?' I've held my cell to my ear at times pretending I'm checking my messages but that only made it worse!

I feel weird because I get a feeling that my walk looks weird to people.
