So..last night I had a panic attack....cause I was afraid that today if we went anywhere outside my house...people would be constantly judging me? I worried about my friends thinking I'm weird and not wanting to be my friends anymore. I worried that if I went ice-skating the better skaters would think I'm a wimp and that I'm horrible at it. I couldn't breathe, several times I calmed down a bit but then it came back. For some reason, these worries are completely new. When I was little I had no care in the world about what other people thought about me. Weirdly, I don't worry about this when I'm actually in public, although I think from now on I will. Since I'm claustrophobic, when there are lot's of people in one space I need to get out. If those people are talking, screaming, etc I want to curl up into a ball and die. That's literally how I feel! I've always thought I could stand up for myself and other people but now I freak out at the idea. If I say something embarrassing the bullies will have another reason to tease me! What is this?!

I don’t know if you ever had this question fully answered, but in my humble opinion, I’m no doctor, but I don’t think you have social anxiety. Social anxiety is when you get panic attacks, and sometimes feel your head is swelling, or you’re sinking into the ground, simply when you’re surrounded by people. What you’re experiencing seems more like fear of being judged, like the “imaginary audience effect”. I suffer from this too. I think this, plus your claustrophobia, is what’s causing these social-anxiety-like fears.
