I become very anxious in situations where there are lots of people: whether I'm between them, getting picked on by the teacher in school or walking past people, I sweat, cough excessively, blush and it looks like I am about to cry.
I also experience hypervigilance which, I think, is yet another symptom of my anxieties.
My GP is aware of the situation (just general anxiety) but not the social aspect of it, nor do my parents.
School has finished for me (completed Year 11 and have been at home for quite a while) and I have GCSEs from Monday. The difficult thing for me will be going to school and walking past others who I haven't seen for a while and they are most likely to approach me in an unnerving way.
I used to interact with everyone so well but my confidence has been reduced since 2015 onwards I'd say.
Anyone else had similar experiences and how have you dealt with such issues?
I'd appreciate your help: Social anxiety problem for the last 6-8 months
