Aug 24, 2011 · social anxiety with strangers, my own family in Mental Health

Is there anyone who has this issue?? Here is my problem…

My voice gets shakey, heart pounds, chest feels heavy and I get dizzy when I socialize with others. This happens alot to me, does not matter if it is a total stranger or my own family who I am very close to. I tell myself that I have no reason to feel nervous, ask myself.. what’s the problem and try to pep talk myself into being calm, but it doesn’t work. I do not feel depressed, or sad or unhappy. I like myself and feel good about who I am and where I am in my life, I enjoy the company of others, like crowds of people. So what the heck is my problem? I hate this feeling, my Mother had anxiety issues, and I have two sisters who have very similar issues. I also have a stepbrother and a niece who are bipolar.
