Feeling weird around people

Recommended Posts

My hands sweat, I feel tensed up, I feel like I'm trying to stop my lips from quivering. I can hardly control it.

Sometimes when I look in the general direction of someone (but not looking at him/her, maybe someone else I'm talking to, or the instructor), I can't help feeling weird that I'm also looking at that someone.

Particularly I can make people feel really uneasy with me, there's this guy I know who's my classmate, I just act weird around him for no reason and now he feels uneasy about me, it's like I've a knack to drive my potential friends away! No, I don't like him romantically, but sometimes I just act so just to embarrass myself out!

I also feel quite self-conscious when people look at me talking to him, that makes me act weirder than ever!

Sounds like you have social anxiety disorder. This is a fairly serious condition. As Fetal said, therapy would be a good idea.

Strangely, people are uneasy in the face of uneasiness. If somebody senses that someone they are talking to is uneasy about something, they themselves will become uneasy. I guess the solution is to overcome your social anxiety.

Its weird. I would of thought shutting myself out, would change my character as i had been away from everyday social situations, for a good year. So slowly day by day in the solitude, i would become a shy introvert. Thats what i thought was happening to me and had happened.

So im walking down the street to the store and on my way back, end up seeing a clique i knew in school. I wasnt doing nothing so i just kicked it with them for the night. I rejected the lure of weed coz ive quit. There were a couple of other guys hanging with them who i didnt know.

I was associating with the new recruits and old timers like i just saw them yesterday. Im still the same guy. Im still suave as hell.

I've let my Acne stop be from being social with people I don't know. This has really fucked my head up, as I've always been an outgoing, funny, easy to get along with type of person. Nowadays, I always have a sour face on.

Just run nude across the street, so that next time you're in one of these situations, you'll think back and say, "if I can do that, then there's nothing I gotta fear."

Or just do the opposite and imagine those people naked instead :razz:

I know how that feels.. I thought I was pretty much socially retarded considering that I've been shut off for 7 months, but right now I feel like im the one doing all the talking at my college course (which I started 2 days ago, new peoples bla). Though.. I seem to have a tendency to say stupid things to fill in silence.. I'm already paranoid I've offended people by being a smartarse. :(

BUT! I also still think I have social anxiety, just yesterday my palms began to sweat, and I started to feel really "greasy" (not sure how else to explain that one), also my eyes feel a bit uncomfortable. Oh yes, and I think one of my teachers hates me because he gave me the toughest homework. Yep, still got issues.

Anywho, you gots two options, bluelight. Force yourself, or therapy. I say force, because I haven't had therapy for social anxiety but I feel as though I'm not doing too badly right now.. I still fuck it up alot, I'm the king of social faux pas, but at least now I can talk to the person behind the counter without my head exploding.

Weird, I think I tracked this topic but got no notifications by email!

I think I remember why I had "My hands sweat, I feel tensed up, I feel like I'm trying to stop my lips from quivering. I can hardly control it. "

It was during a lesson which went on and on after the time it's supposed to end and I'm anxious about running off to work on time.

But well, I should tell my problem this way:

Every time some person who knows me looks at me while I'm talking or sitting beside someone else (say a guy) I'll feel really uneasy!

I don't feel too self-conscious usually cos, well, why would you think people would look at you anyway when they're busy chatting with their friends, but then I look like something jutting out (what's that idiom again?) when I don't have anyone I really "know" in that class, though everyone recognises me from face, and they seem not to like me or don't talk to me. Going on for a year.

SIH if there were someone like you around maybe we won't be so stuck in this vicious cycle!

It was a discussion class, and we're all seated in a circle, so I couldn't just go like that. I don't like being late for the first day at work, that was why I was kind of freaking out.

I never tried to wait for a class to begin. In fact, I was always a few minutes late. I stick out like a sore thumb trying to read my notes when everybody else's chatting merrily all around me!
