I thank everyone for there caring reply. I am 50 now and it has been figured that I have suffered with this for about 45 years. This anxiety thing is a double edge sword by avoiding the situation yesterday now gives me anxiety because I feel that I let people down and maybe make people think I don't like them and then for days it causes great hopelessness. And the more I try not thinking about it the more I think about it PTSD is a monster. I live in the thumb of MI and I'm wondering if anyone knows of any support groups in this area.
