    So I seem to have this problem with I know that everyone obviously blushes when they are embarrassed but I seem to get it when the situation is not even necessarily embarrassing...

    I try to ignore it when it happens but obviously it would be great if I could stop it happening.

    Anyone else had this and if so, how did they get through it?

    *Feel free to move this if its in the wrong section*

    I read a book recently called 'Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science' and in it is a story about a young broadcaster with an issue like yours.

    Here's the bit from the book below so you don't have to buy it

    I have the same issue. That was a good read, but I wouldn't go to those lengths.

    The more you think about it and are aware of it, the worse it is.
    I've always had it too - it doesn't help when people point it out either

    I've only ever had someone point it out once.

    This happens to me, too. I think it is worsened by the fact that people never fail to point it out. It usually happens to me if I am receiving some sort of unwanted attention, ex: everyone staring at me if I ask a question in lecture. Personally, I think it is caused by an awareness to how people are feeling or perceiving you, coupled with a sensitivity to how they feel about your performance. It probably helps to keep in mind that people don't really care. If anything, they'll be slightly amused and might point it out just because it's relevant to the discussion.

    I've got that too, I just try to accept it now because thinking about it and worrying about it makes it worse. I figure if people care about it that much or think it's weird they're not someone I want to spend time with anyway so who cares haha, it can't be fixed so might as well ignore it
