What makes you anxious?
 
For me, it's being in a room full of strangers or being outside and people staring at me. I just wish I was invisible.

Being around people at school. All the noise really makes me anxious, made worse by the fact that I used to be bullied a lot, and still am. Let's hope that they won't do it again this year.

Being around lots of people in one place indoors (if it's outside it doesn't seem so crowded), being around certain people at school, and when people around me argue/fight. Also I get anxiety for no particular reason which really sucks.

Living without any friends. That really hits hard.

People. Doesn't matter if I know them or not. Especially if I have to ask them for something or provide a service for them. It terrifies me.

I hope they don't as well, that sux they do that, no reason for it. I don't know you real good, but what I do know it those that are bullying you are losing you on knowing someone really nice a very cool IMO

It does, I've been there. But Jason, friends don't come over night. And I know you have some here, so take that and embrace it bro. We all got something goin on. So if we stick together then....

Being around people I don't know very well, or being in a group of more than a few people - both make me very anxious. I don't do well with crowds.

Also, deadlines in general...those make me anxious. I'd rather be incredibly early than one minute late when it comes to anything (appointments, meetings, classwork, etc).

Leaving the house, making any sort of contact with, like, everyone that isn't my friend, mum or dad. You think I'm joking -_- but I'm not. The struggle is real.

Thinking about what other people think of me, wondering if I said anything stupid, anything that could be construed as confrontational, feeling inadequate and alienated in general.

This also goes for me. I try not to care what other people are thinking about me, easier said than done.

Anything new in general...if I have to go somewhere new, do something I haven't done before I think about millions of horror scenarios about what could happen.

And being among strangers...I never know how to start a conversation or how to act.

Loads of things xD Currently it is mainly meeting people I don't know and worrying about my future.

At the moment for me it's when I have to leave the house or when I have to meet people I don't know very well. I'm also having a lot of exam anxiety and a bad "what if I fail all of my subjects" mindset which is adding onto it.

Everything around me, pretty much. Ever since I was a young kid, I never really had any friends, so I used to pretend everything around me was alive. Unfortunately, that stuck with me and I can't seem to shake it out of my head. I tell myself all the time they aren't real, but somehow the thought sneaks in that anything in my room could be watching me. From my phone to my guitar, it just feels like everything has a mind of their own, and they are whispering negative things about me. Maybe it's my brain's way of dealing with an old issue I used to have with self image and depression, as well as my social anxiety which was never resolved. I don't think of myself like I used to; I'm actually becoming more comfortable with who I am, but because my social anxiety is still there and my brain thinks everything around me is alive, it makes it hard to live life being who I am. And it doesn't help that our house is haunted by the previous owner :mad:.

Even thought I don't have anxiety I know how you feel. When I'm performing in a talent show or a solo I get really nervous and I start to freak out. What helps me is imagining everyone in the room is wearing polka dot under wear or something funny. It'll help you see a positive insight of the situation. I hope I helped :)
