Hi  :action-smiley-065:
I have suffered from anxiety and panic attacks for as long as i can remember, even as a young child. I recently started university and the social anxiety is just paralyzing me. I can't walk into a lecture without panicking that everyone is staring at me. I don't have any friends because I can't talk to anyone and if they talk to me i come across as awkward or rude when i'm not, i'm just anxious. the uni is sending me letters saying my attendance is bad but i feel trapped like i can't do anything. i don't want to disclose my mental health to anyone incase they can hold it against me in terms of exchange student applications and things like that. they only accept people with a good mental health.
I hate anxiety.

Hello Bee,
I have been teacher of a few students with severe social anxiety. I understand where you are comIng from, but perhaps it would be a good idea to go on anxiety meds for a while so that you can manage classes and not lose your place at uni. Also, perhaps you could speak to a counselor about your issues. I don't know your specific situation, but I think most lecturers would have an understanding if they knew what was going on.
Just don't withdraw from the world. Life has more to offer than social isolation. Take care. See if there's a group at your uni who face the same challenge as you.  :action-smiley-065:
