I'm a skinny 17 year old and I have social anxiety in general but in particular with eating in front of people. I find it so hard to eat even the smallest thing around people without feeling like everyone's looking at me even though I know they're not. It makes going out for meals with friends hell and I also hate ordering food at a restaurant so I'll often get a friend to do it for me. Also, even if I don't particularly want something, if it seems like the easiest or least messiest thing to eat on the menu I'll order it to avoid any kind of embarrassment. I've had this for years basically since I started comprehensive school in year 7. Does anyone else feel like this and should I see someone about it?
