Hi everyone,
I have a problem.

I can not stand up in a room full of people, shoot just a couple, and say my name and a little about myself. My face will get red and I will have a rush of adrenelin that will leave me week and heavy.

I get redfaced and flush feeling in a lot of public situations like ordering food, talking to docs, standing in a line, boss telling me a joke. I get this way any time I HAVE to say something. I hate HAVE to's.

I am not scard of people or thinking that something bad is going to happen. I do want out of the situation from a fear of embarasing myself. I sometimes wonder if I would have a problem at all if my face never turned red.

My problem caused me to drop out of school and collage, it has caused emotional problems, health problems, depression and jealousy. The reason I am jealous is the fact that I could have been so much more minus this problem. Now I have to work my *** off and never get nowhere. It seems to me that being good socially is all it takes to succeed in our world.

I guess the worst thing about this is I am starting to hate people, not in a crazy way. The things people do. Here is a good example I was driving up to the mountains with wife and kids and stoped to help a box turtle cross the road when some *** swerved out of his lane to hit the turtle. Right in front of my kids. Or how about this my ex-boss laid off some help and cut others pay and a week later pulls up in a new Expedition. And hes in church every Sunday.

Well I have been sick for 9 months with dizziness, spaciness, scerwed up vision, pluged ears and weird sensations in back and shoulders. The docs put me on paxil thinking it was anxiety, just another symptom. 8 months of paxil did not help. I have all of those symptoms 24/7. I am sure this was caused or helped out by my social and emotional problems. I am trying to help myself by changing my diet. What else can I do? I dont want drugs unless they are alternative and proven safe and effective. I dont think it is to late, I am only 35.

If anyone has been through this please respond. Let me know what you did to help yourself. I am really concentrating on my physical probs at the moment. As soon as I get back to feeling normal I want to do something about the social and emotional probs.

If any young people read this and can relate or deal with similer problems you need to do something now or you may end up like me. Dont let anyone tell you that anxiety cant hurt you that is BS. I have heard a lot of people say that the heart can take a panic attack it is no different than exercizing. I dont know if I believe that either. exercise brings heart rate up slowly, anxiety attack instantly.

Thanks for hearing me whine,

Derek

I wanted to reply to let you know that you are not alone in how you feel. I experience the same anxiety when with people that I have to respond to, funny as it seems I can really relate to the boss thing. I always get red & blotchy when in a stressful social situation. I hate lines too, especially in a big open public place! I have my first appt tomarrow with the p-doc. I am scared to death, I have never been to a therapist or psychiatrist before. I feel nauscious thinking about it. Anyhow, it's not too late to get help, you are still young. Try to make an appt with a doc, and keep us posted on your progress!
