Sounds like you have anxiety? But you have not given much detail. What else has been happening in your life?

I have social anxiety and have signed up for help. When I am on the phone is the least anxiety I get , For example the way I talk on the phone is like I am writing a letter, It is quite shocking that I can't even speak on the phone, and face to face I tell people to not talk to me because I can't talk to them. For example my cousin I had not seen for 4 years made fun of me for it and I ended up breaking his arm.

I had the exact same problem! I have social anxiety, and it has held me back for sure. But ice grown out of the phone thing. I would never ever phone someone or answer a phone. Ironically, I had to phone the mental health people and I couldn't do it so missed out on that. Words would literally not come out or I'd be sweating heart racing and my voice sound 'gay' or 'girly'.

I don’t want to seem like a di.ck but the fact that you broke his arm is extremely satisfying and funny. He deserved that. Practice with yourself in the mirror is what I would have said a few years ago but it really comes down to self-esteem (although it is hard for us to admit it) and how much you value yourself. You should see a professional that you trust and that can help you climb the ladder to become the confident person you are destined to be!

That sounds about fair, as long as you have gotten over him. Seek help from people you can trust. Good luck buddy! Most people have been there but are too proud to admit it.

Look, being able to talk on the phone is an important skill and you are going to have to do it for many important things in life. I too don't really like talking on the phone so I can sympathise. The only solution to this problem is practice and more practice. Call your friends and play different roles. Begin it with someone you trust and build it up from there. If I am honest, I think a lot of people don't like talking on the phone. However, some have intense fears, like you and like I used to. The one thing that helped me was just doing it more and realising that as we grow older, we will have to become a little more resilient.

Do try to control your actions though. You could try CBT to support you and counselling.
