social anxiety disorder

Ive always had incredable shyness. When I was 7th grade I noticed I couldn't talk to anyone but a small group of people. I have a fear of inberessing myself and being akward. But I coulnt talk to anybody or make freinds. When somebody would talk to me or say hi an extreme amount of anxiety my mind would blank out and alls I could do is mumble a few words. But my fears are overblown but even when I decide not to care what I say I still feel extreme   anxiety and I can't calm it down. When I do talk to someone my mind blanks out and I cant think striaght so I do become very akward. Ive had this all my life and its only been getting worst. I started to notice it in 7th grade and I looked every day for ways to overcome it and no theirs no helping it. In middle I had a few friends but in high school I moved and couldnt make any friends at all. Then I learned about social anxiety disorder and is sound alot like me and i have other anxiety disorders like hypocondira and OCD. But it could be aspergers.

Hello there,

I suggest you read this and come back to me if you want help. It's something we'll do in private.

Social anxiety can really be hard to confront sometimes, but many people have this to some degree in my opinion.  Have you ever thought of seeing a therapist about this?  This can definitely be very scary and frustrating; especially when we do not know much about it.
