Do I have social anxiety?
I’m fourteen years old and recently I have been worrying about my mental health. When I’m presented with a social situation such as. having to approach a stranger and tell them to do something, knocking on someone’s door, talking to shop assistants, having to change clothes in front of parents, I often find myself unable to do so these things. I find myself experiencing things such as hot and cold flushes, racing heart, fiddling and just nerves in general. Occasionally afterwards I will also break down in a crying fit. I’ve been doing some research about social anxiety but I’m not quite sure yet. I experience some of the symptoms and hints they suggest could mean I have it, but other things seem too extreme for what I’m experiencing. Im just not sure, and if I do have some from of social anxiety what should I do about it?
