School makes me so unbelievably nervous and self-aware of myself, but being at home for so long has made me realise how comfortable I am in comparison to school. Just the thought of having to go back to school makes my heart slam in my chest honestly. And I haven't stayed in contact with any friends because I'm too nervous talking online, which sounds rly dumb but thats the truth

Which year of high school(university) are you in?
Do you have trouble making friends?

In all honestly I feel the same way. However we wont get very far in life if we stay at home in self isolation. I have found that as difficult as social anxiety disorder is, if you want things in life you have to go out and get them! You cant let anxiety stop you. I can guarantee that if and when you go to university you will gain more confidence and get better in social situations. I would highly recommend going to see a GP about your anxiety if it is affecting you on a daily basis. I wish I had sooner.
We cross each bridge in life when we come to it and you will find the courage to go back to school I promise you. As hard as the first day will be, it does get easier and it wont be as bad as you think.

When I did my master degree and now work, I have to communicate with many mates. Though I have a little social anxiety now, it's much better
Are you boy or girl? Are you a highschool or university student?

Yeah for sure. If anything, I'm a bad friend to her (cause I'm always just overcome with anxiety, I can imagine it's pretty exhausting to be around pff)
And I don't study that well.. I guess studying at home helps, but I'm your classic procrastinating type.

Hey
I am at university but I suffer from social anxiety too, and I only have 1 friend. Talking in forums like this really helps me cause it gets you used to interacting with people without having to be with them face to face. And I can tell you from experience that you are not a "bad" friend - if people leave you for your flaws, they weren't really true friends
Hope you're feeling better about things now
