    Have you got SA?
    I was home schooled for much of my childhood and thanks to long periods of sickness I was basically hermit. When I finally got back "out there" again I was incredibly nervous and unsure of myself. Im not sure if Id class it as full on social anxiety - but even basic social interactions were very intimidating.

    The best advice I could give you would be to jut bite the bullet and get interacting. You will mess up a few times, especially at first, but the trick is to remember that it isnt the end of the world.

    And if you treat people with respect, compassion and honour, you'll do significantly better than 85% (minimum) of other humans.

    Mine isn't too bad but yeah. Hope you're finding social interaction a bit easier now.
