    Hey,
    Im going out on a whim here and am just looking for an insight into feelings.
    In day to day life I’m “ normal” but in everyday social interactions I feel as though I say and act out of character. I’ll just blurt things out and then go home and for hours after it analyse and overthink the interaction. This has been the case ever since I remember but recently I feel as though it’s getting worse, I get really bad hot sweats and heart palpitations , until I figure out hot to calm myself down then it stops.
    I don’t think I’m describing this well but it’s beginning to effect me in the sense that I avoid social situations when I can, sometimes not going out for days. Anyone got any advice on how to combat this??

    Have you been to the doctors or tried self-help books? I think it's good to get out of your comfort zone. It's okay to feel embarrassed too

    hey, yeah self help books have been helpful to me but I’ve found them to be a temporary method to helping it, so it might just be a case of reading them more?☺️🤷🏻*♀️
    It’s strange because it’s an emphasised embarrassment, I know most situations aren’t as bad as I make them out to be but it’s trying to block off the overthinking that’s the main struggle, thanks for your advice roy😊
