Socially awkward Belle. TTC since Oct 2013; 1 child; Alberta 2433 postsstatus 22nd Apr
Ugh in highschool I used to be so popular and had no problems making friends or talking to strangers but for some reason now I am SO awkward and weird in social settings. I think I have been cooped up for too long. I haven't been out with friends in 2 years and now when I see an old friend I get anxious and don't know what to say and usually say something stupid. Today I got so scared when I was talking to this chick that I actually blacked out and I don't even remember the conversation. LOL like how fuckin dumb is that? Sorry kind of just rambling. Needed to get that off my chest

I'm like that :( I stopped really getting out when I got pregnant. My sons 5 months old & I rarely leave the house. When I do I'm super anxious & even overwhelmed to the point of defensive & stingy with my son sometimes lol. He's EBF & has separation anxiety though

I understand. I had a ton of friends in high school. Then in the military I had a ton of friends cause you're kinda forced to get along with people. I have no one in tx yet :( it s***s.

I'm a SAHM, and I've noticed that when I spend too much time cooped in the house I get like socially...yuck. Like even going to the grocery store I just don't want to speak to anyone. I'll spend the whole grocery trip talking to my 15 month old because I don't WANT to speak to an adult. lol.

I've been like this since I got pregnant with my daughter. I'm a sahm who can't drive for medical reasons and I'm cooped up all the time because SO works quite a bit. Now when we do get out, I can't explain the anxiety, it's overwhelming. It's taken me like 30 mins to type this bit, trying to make sure I'm not going overboard. It's got so bad I have a time talking on forums. Just so nervous because seeing how some people treat others these days, I want to avoid those situations. I am terrified of any type of social situation.
