New here, introducing myself.
« on: January 10, 2014, 12:58:05 PM »
Hi everyone. I'm new to the forums. I came here so I could talk to people about how I feel, people who understand where I'm coming from. I constantly feel like people are judging me, talking about me, or making fun of me. I have 2 sons and I'm afraid of people judging me as a mother, so I get very anxious in situations with other parents (school events, kids' parties, etc.). I have no friends outside of my family, mainly because I have trouble talking to people. I worry that I will say something stupid, causing them to dislike me. I want to overcome these issues, not just for myself but especially for my sons. I don't want my anxiety to affect their lives and hold them back from everything the world has to offer.

Hi sadie,

Welcome to the forum.  You are now a member of our community, where you will find support and advice from other members in similar situations.   It's always nice to find someone else who understands, and to know you're not alone.

We have sections in the forum that address specific concerns, so feel free to post or start a new topic in the section that best fits your situation.  Feel free to explore the rest of the forum.  You may find the other topics helpful, and you may be able to offer advice or support to someone else.

We also have a chat room for members over the age of 18.  Once you have made three meaningful posts, you will be allowed access to the chat room.

Sadie, what you are experiencing is Social Anxiety.  I know, cause I also have a bit of that.  You are way too focused inwardly.   You think ppl are judging or making fun of you, when they probably aren't even thinking about you, because they are focused on themselves.   You will find help and support here at AZ, as many ppl here also have these issues.

Good luck to you, and again, welcome to AZ.
