My name is Constance, and I've become a recluse. I've had a few social situations come up, and I think I might have a form of social anxiety disorder. Even posting this is freaking me out right now.
My reasons for thinking so that I've noticed are:
A shaky feeling whenever I go out in public alone. I always feel like I'm being judged or too awkward.

If I want to go out to eat or see a movie, if no one wants to go I just don't go.

The only time I'm able to feel socially confident is when I've had a few drinks.

What do you guys think? I don't feel like I can talk to anyone else about this. I've seen therapists, but I've never told them about any social anxiety issues. I guess I try to suppress it.

So far what I've read on here I totally relate to. I just don't know anyone really, so I'll probably idly watch this place awhile.
