How can i change?
Hi im a bit scared writing this now but i tried loads but nothing seems to work, Im so shy i dont have any friends or a boyfriend i cant talk at work (im a cleaner so i dont need to) but it gets me down so much i watch every one else having fun talking but i dont dare join in. If i become involed in a conversation i get nervous sweaty and feel like my head is pumping with blood. and i can sense i make people feel awkward with my body language cos i look away or say one word answers cos my mind goes blank. I cant even get on with my own family im scared about my future. I been the doctors loads but they give me anti depressants they dont work cos im not depressed just sick of being shy.
I just wish I could fit in and enjoy life more instead of being scared and nervous all the tgime i hate it. Is there anything I can take to cure it??

I don't think there are any easy cures.

I also have trouble joining in conversations. I either butt in or keep quiet. I have trouble reading nonverbal communication.

It's POSSIBLE that you have an anxiety disorder, but it's also very possible that you're just an incredibly shy person.
I would suggest discussing this with your doctor. The one thing you said that makes me strongly recommend this was, "I can't even get on with my own family...." I know some extremely shy people, but it disappears around their family.
IF you DO have a social type of anxiety, there are medications that could help you, but they would best be combined with therapy to deal with your shyness.
Come out of your shell............I bet you'll end up being the life of the party!
Let us know how you're doing, OK?
Peace
