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.
