Does anybody have problems feelings natural whenever their face is exposed to the public and open for other people to look at? This problems affects my particularly on subways, on the streets, presentations, and private conversations.

It seem like I can never feel natural and makes it very hard for conversations.

I can never get comfortable in the presence of others. It seems like I am always being scrutinized and I get too paranoid to just "be".


What is your solution to this problem?

I do the scrutinizing, and it freaks people out! :(

I always have the habit of covering my mouth somehow with my hands when I'm anxious. Like I would stroke my shaved hairs around my mouth, or put my hand on my chin and lean on it when I'm sitting. Also I feel much more comfortable when I have a hood on. Maybe this has something to do with this?

I also have this problem. I feel that everyone everywhere is just staring at me all the time. It's worse when I'm on the metro which is usually crowded. I just try not to make eye contact.
