So, I think I know what my mental problem is! For some unknown reason I’ve developed an irrational fear of speaking to people I’m unfamiliar with. I get flustered and find it difficult to get my words out and start or be part of a conversation. Apparently it’s termed social Anxiety and I’m not sure what to do about it. It’s made me feel so nervous around people in general, so much so, that I’m avoiding contact with friends and even some family members! I’m on annual leave at the moment but I’m dreading going back to work. I feel a little bit crazy at the moment, I know I’m not crazy but I feel that way.
Thank you to everyone who has expressed concern for me and sent me kind messages and words of comfort. I really appreciate it.
