I'm done now.
Now in all seriousness: I will tell you that I go to a psychologist. No, not a psychiatrist, a psychologist. Thus far, I've learned that I have a severe fear of feeling stupid (which happens a lot in life), and this coupled with an inability to act on something until I've completely "figured it out" paralizes me. Except for a crisis. I deal quite well in a crisis, simply because I don't have time to overthink about it, because reaction is needed RIGHT NOW.
Some of the things I fear:
Starting a conversation with someone I don't know. This is perhaps the biggest one, as it also tends to prevent me from calling the electric company or phone company or whatever. Oddly, sometimes I CAN start conversations with people, but I have to feel "safe".
Driving. I did not get my driver's license until about a year ago. I am now 30 years old. Nor did I drive a car until last year. Silly, huh?
Anyway, I figured I'd share. I imagine a number of you out there have some of the same anxieties that I do, and I just wanted to encourage you to try to overcome them. If you have to see a professional to help you, then do it.
