How do I live a typical life when I just want to avoid everyone 24/7?
I have some strange form of extreme anxiety and because of it I avoid nearly all forms of communication with others. Particularly when attracting interest from girls. When I communicate with others my brain shuts down and I'm incoherent and unable to say much at all. I don't know why but it happens without fail, whether it's a customer at work, a girl I'm interested in, or my parents I've known for years. I don't have any "butterflies in my stomach" feelings or that nonsense, I just can't think of responses, subjects, ice breakers or anything at all when people talk to me. I'm just in lockdown mode. So. How doomed am I?

Me too man... Luckily I have one or two people who that doesn't happen with. Oh well, maybe one day we'll be free.
