I think I may have Social Anxiety Disorder... Since around 9th grade everyone referred to me as being shy and not talking, etc. I never went to any high school functions like dances or football games because I told myself they were pointless and no fun. I never had a girlfriend during high school. I have a few friends who I am pretty close with and am fairly comfortable around. When I started college I was ready to start changing things but I still get really anxious about most things. I will hardly ever talk out in class or go to lunch with people, etc. I have had two girlfriends while in college...one I met online. The other I was introduced to through a friend and I got kind of an inside connection and knew how she felt about me. I find it really hard to talk to people I dont know and try to avoid situations that are purely for social interaction. It a lot of times interferes with studying and other things because I become preoccupied with thoughts of getting a phone call or doing something that night where I can not focus on studying and as such my grades have been dropping. And during the times I had a girlfriend it really sucked...I felt happy but they were all I could think about- like when I was going to see them next, talk to them next, etc- to the point its almost all I did.
