Sometimes I do.  I have social anxiety disorder & social OCD.  That's the reason I'm on medication. BTW, I don't think you're going crazy.

I used to have it, but as the fear is diminishing, that is going away too. I also learn myself coping techniques.

 

If I don't want to talk to people, I don't talk to people. I'm putting myself first. Usually I think about others first, but I need to get healthy.

 

Never had real social anxiety before all this I believe. I had just had a problem talking to some girls, but every guy has that at some point I believe.

 

Anyway, it's all fear fear fear, and if the fear goes away, it will be okay. Just my thoughts.

When I feel good I just talk to people, when I don't feel good I don't.

 

What also helped for me was realizing that I'm not less than anybody else and that I have nothing to be ashamed about.

 

I'm only around people who want best for me. If you don't like me, I think: 'f*** off, life is too short to be around people I don't like.' I live my life for myself and the people I care about.

 

If I see people staring at me, I think to myself: 'so what let them stare. There is nothing special about me. There are 6 milliard people on this planet. Everybody is busy doing their own thing.' or sometimes I even think ' f*** off, the problem is with you, not with me, if somebody is really staring at me.'

 

If I'm running through the park where there a lot of people I just sometimes close my eyes behind my sunglasses so I don't even notice them staring.

 

And one point when all the fear is gone, I won't even notice all those things anymore.

 

If people would try to bully me or be hateful to me I just feel sorry for them that my presence is affecting their life so much.

 

And I realised that not everybody is out to get me, we can't all like eachother on this planet, but there lots of good people around.

 

 

I don't know if any of this helps

My basic strategy is just trying to stay away from people, till I'm all better. I'm easily overstimulated. I focus on positivity and surround myself with only nice people.

 

If someone is nasty to me here, I usually just leave for a while. I still get those adrenaline surges you are talking about when that happens.

 

It keeps getting better however.
