Hi my name's Emma
I'm not really sure about posting this but I'll give it a go. I've been shy most of my life but have only been diagnosed with social anxiety in the last five years. I have been improving my confidence and ability to interact a significant amount in the last year or two but I've never been able to make friends and therefore struggled with school and college; I moved to university this past Saturday and although it has only been two days I am feeling very uncomfortable. I know that I should give myself time to settle in and adjust but I'm scared that it'll turn out badly
Today was the first official set of classes and it seemed to me that everybody was talking to one another and my seminar only has about 8 people in and they were able to talk to each other very easily and by the end of the day they were friends. I did not talk to anybody and I feel really angry at myself.
Can anybody give me any advice because I'm really scared???
Sorry for the rant, I didn't mean for it to be so long
