Not sure...
Jul 1, 2009
hi everyone,

recently i was watching a youutuube video, and found out social anxiety exists! and can be helped....

i have an appointment with my gp on Thursday to talk about getting a referral for my local CBT clinic....
but im not sure if im just being silly?

for as long as i can remember ive been bad at saying what comes to mind in case its the wrong thing to say, and people judge me.
i cant eat in front of people, or sneeze, or walk confidently next to people.

recentlyyyy ive been to scared to go hang out with my friends, and when i do im so self conscious the whole time that when i try to speak to them i burn up and cant say anything....

also, a couple of days ago i started getting excess saliva in my mouth, which just keep coming no matter how much i swallow... ive done research on that and apparently its OCD?

ive read lots of books on controlling anxiety and self talk and stuff....
but id really like the help of a physiologist :)

any tips of what i should say to my gp? or...if i am being silly...

Tell him/her exactly what you stated here -that you have a lot of anxiety around people and that you think you may also suffer from OCD - that you want a referral for a psychologist to get help.

When I go tot he GP - I usually have to talk to the nurse hand so she can make a note to the doc as to what's behind the visit - If it's the same for you - and you fear talking to the doc - talk to the nurse.

Don't try to overbuild the conversation you go - that's all there is to it.

If you think you might choke in the discussion - write it out on a piece of paper - and if you need to, just hand the doc the note.
