Bizarre way of life
Feb 11, 2006
I'm sure you get these threads a lot. It's "what's wrong with me" thread.

First of all don't like being around or taking to people. I'm shy, anxious and phobia fillied

Okay I know so far I haven't listed anything too unordinary and you probably think I'm just silly teenager overly concern about her mental health (well maybe I am).

Yet I isolate from the world as possible. I hate going outside I get so anxious and just want to run back to my house and lock myself in my room. Now this is the part make me think I'm crazy: I spend almost every hour I'm awake daydreaming, I know that is it's normal to daydream but I do it all the time and it seems very real and I even get confused between what is reality and what is made up in my head and when do snap back to reality I hit a huge emotional low because this is my real life and it isn't going change yet I seem so completely detached from this world.

Also sometimes I think the person standing me next to me or a people I know might possibly be able to read my thoughts and then in my head I say "I know your reading my mind, I think it's sick. Stop it" just in case they are and I look at there face it see if their face shows a reaction to what I said.

There is a lot I could add but I'm going to leave it there.

I think it's very normal for someone who feels so isolated and anxious to spend a great deal of time daydreaming or doing other activities that keeps the anxiety and stress at bay while also helping you feel more in control and less lonely. People can get lost in daydreaming, but it's important not to confuse fantasy with reality. I think as long as you recognize that you can confuse the two, you will be able to distinguish the difference.

I'm not sure about the thinking people can read your mind thing. Maybe anxiey/social shyness has something to do with that, too. Sounds like social anxiety, maybe agoraphobia, too. If you have self esteem issues and lack confidence in yourself and place a big emphasis on what others think, it's reasonable to think you might believe others will think bad of you and if they could read your mind and know who you truly were, that you fear they would reject you and that might lead to paranoid type feelings.

Again, as far as the daydreaming goes, I wouldn't worry too much. Is it something you have always done, since you were little? Has it gotten worse? Have you always been shy/anxious? Feel free to share more if you like. There are people who understand. Me, being one.
