I've always had a fear of talking on the phone. I still did it, but it did cause a lot of anxiety. In an effort to get myself to not feel so afraid of the phone, I got a job where I had to use the phone a lot. I lasted a few months in that job and quit because the idea of calling a client one more time made me want to cry. Now I can't talk to anyone on the phone except my boyfriend or my mum. If it rings, I just don't pick up. I'm terrified of making any appointments or any enquiries. I've been avoiding it for some time now. It's strange because I'm more than happy to talk to people in real life.Has anyone else had a problem like this? What can I do about it? I'd go and see a therapist, but I don't want to call to make an appointment! That's about the scariest thing I can think of!
