Man, after reading some of this, when you think about it, people with SA do some risky stuff! :b.
I used to only get cookies at lunch, because I was too afraid to go in the line, and get any real food. In grade school, I only ate jelly bread sandwiches, with maybe a little something else, because I don't even know why haha, I think I was afraid to get lunch then too. I used to get made fun off, and teachers used to be concerned.
I have such bad anxiety, that I was/and still am afraid to run away from socially anxious situations, and it actually doesn't help me :roll.
I don't think I raised my hand in school from 5th grade till college because of fear.
When the phone rings, even if I'm right next to it, I will not pick it up. Everyone yells at me.
If someone knocks at the door, I sneak around to see who it is, and I most likely won't answer it. My boyfriend thinks I'm nuts.
In my dorm, I would try not to use the bathroom if the girl who shared my room was there.
I avoided all my roommates.
I have lied to avoid parties or hanging out with friends.
When I liked people, I couldn't talk to them myself, I was one of those people that had to get a friend to do it. I must of looked like a loser.
I used to pretend to text people, or use my phone before classes, to make it look like I had a life.
I avoid ordering food over the phone.
I would lie to teachers, and say I wasn't done my assignment yet, so I didn't have to answer. Usually didn't work.
One of the things I hated the most was group assignments, and I would try to let the other person do it, and if they weren't that type of person, I would get really anxious, and just start making stuff up.
One time I was invited to a girl's birthday party, and when I got there, guys from class started making fun of me for the longest time, so my friend and I just left the party which was in the woods. I was in 7th or 8th grade, and we walked all the way home at night. It was pitch black, and we could not see anything. When I got home, I cried, and then my parents came home, and my mom made a big thing out of it, and I'm pretty sure I ended up ruining that girl's party. Well, really the guys did that made fun of me, if it wasn't for them, it wouldn't have happened.
