  • I am not sure if I have social anxiety or not?

    Sorry for the super long post, but I need help and answers. You see, I'm not really sure if I actually have SAD. I've done research and I believe I do but I really need confirmation.

    I am almost 14, and I have had many symptoms of SAD. I constantly feel like I am being judged. The popular kids in school would be laughing and I immediately think they're laughing at me. I have a very low self esteem too.

    Also, I get extremely nervous for absolutely no reason at all. I would be having a normal conversation with my friend and for no reason I feel anxious and I start to shake uncontrollably. Also, this year I have noticed that my presentation skills have gotten even worse that before. I shake so bad (like a scared chihuahua), feel like my mouth and throat are dry, I can't talk, everything is sort of slurred and I feel like I am about to cry. I take really long pauses between sentences and the embarrassment kills me.

    I have also had a problem with gagging when I get nervous. I have had that problem since pre-k. I would gt nervous or excited and then gag. I eat out in a restaurant, I gag. I also have problems with talking to adults like my teachers if I needed to ask them something. Sometimes I can talk to them, but sometimes I can't. I don't do a lot of things because I am afraid of embarrassing myself and it keeps my from having fun.

    I have talked to my mom about it, maybe a few weeks ago. I was always a shy girl and always had problems with talking, but it has gotten worse. My mom said she'll talk to her friend who is a therapist, but she hasn't. I feel like she's forgotten, but I don't want to talk about it again to her. So my real question is, do I have SAD? If I do, what can I do about it? And if I don't, what is wrong with me? Also, I don't really tell my teachers how I feel about presenting so I just get bad grades now... I don't know what to do.

    Thanks
