Social Anxiety?
Jul 27, 2005
I've suspected I've had some sort of social anxiety. I'm not afraid of everyone, just certain people. If I can be myself and wear jeans, shorts, etc. I'm better than if I have to wear a dress, heals, and stand around in a drinking environment (i.e. a Christmas party). Well, today I went to the gym but I had to also play sales person for my and my husband's company. I spoke to someone at the gym and gave them my business card. (I chose someone I thought I could trust). I was nervous, of course, and as I was walking out she ran into someone else's office smiling and I believe they were making fun of me. Now, I'm a little shaky with a rapid heart beat and I feel like crying. I'm humiliated. So, I guess I'm asking if this is some sort of social disorder? I'm on Lexapro, which usually helps. I'm trying to get pregnant so I can't take anything else. Right now I'm trying some warm milk to calm me down. Thoughts? Thanks in advance for any input.

P.S. I'm also upset with myself because a normal person can just brush this off and never think about it again. I'll be thinking about it for weeks!
