Something wrong with me?

Postby 111jas » Thu Nov 20, 2014 1:43 am

I don't know why, but I always feel like something is wrong with me, mentally or physically! Like, if one day I'm feeling sad, it means I have depression, or if I get a bruise, and I don't know how, it means I have cancer and it is really annoying. I also hate being touched! I do touch people though because I feel like I'm being impolite. I won't let my family touch me or even my friends. When I have to speak in front of an audience my hands start shaking and I start stuttering really bad. I usually feel very overwhelmed and I'm some what anti social. I rather stay home and do literally nothing than go out with my few friends. I don't even like texting my friends. I absolutely hate when people tell me they love me, and I hate saying I love you back. I usually say I love you but I don't mean it and it feels very uncomfortable. I don't know why but I feel unloved and I know my family loves me and not to brag but I know I'm the favorite because I'm an A student and don't do anything wrong (I stay at home). Does anyone have this? I'm worried that maybe I have suppressed childhood memories and that's why I hate being touched, am antisocial and nervous in big crowds?

Learning to accept ourselves as we are brings wonderful peace of mind, are you willing to change?

You just have social anxiety. You would be shocked how many people do. Most social anxiety has to do with the "Me, myself and I" complex. You are worried about making someone feel differently toward you. Children who grow up with very few friends have trouble dealing with confrontation beyond a one on one. Love yourself and accept yourself and all your flaws, and as you age, you will over come it.

I see somewhat of where you are coming from. I only ever hug my sisters and I hate people touching my knees especially. Over time I realised I would get quieter and quieter and then couldn't really talk with people anymore. Didn't know how to have a conversation with anyone even with family. So I suggest you try to get help ASAP before things get worse. You need to take baby steps. Try going to a group or reading self help books. I know this sounds harsh but do you really like your friends? I realised that my friends were nothing like myself and as we grew older had very little of the same interests. You could try putting yourself up for courses you enjoy like cooking or sewing or looking for something you haven't done before for one day a week just to get yourself out there again. But prepare yourself first. I hope you get the help you need. And things work out for you

counseling or therapy can help you. Be positive and try to think rational
