extreme anxiety of talking about myself


I am really anxious and nervous all the time because i have a hard time talking about my self. I tend to try to hide things about myself due to fear people will think i an rich. for example: -going to a private high school (it was a religious one but still) -having siblings in the USa. one of them with a phd. scared people will judge me for my brother having done a phd inthe usa and think i am rich - telling people what my parents do ( own a small business) -other things like travelling and places i have been

I have also never told some people i have a sister. I am afraid they will be mad at me for never telling them this

I cant keep going like this. At work is the worst. I dont know what to do

Have you tried medication? I've seen similar threads from you a number of times and this seems more like obsessional behavior than ordinary insecurity. Medications can help with that.

Are you sure you want to permanently delete this culture? [Yes] [No]

you are wasting people time, you aren't going to take any of their suggestions, if you don't find anything helpful here, you can go to another place like reddit, people there may help you.
