    Phone calls?

    I hate phone calls. I have an anxiety attack just thinking about using the phone...
    I've cried having to make phone calls before. I've got two voice mails I haven't listened to yet and I received two calls while I was in class today.

    Phone calls are where my anxiety is the worst. Just the thought of a captive audience sets it off.

    Phone calls are where my anxiety is worst too! I have to make a phone call tomorrow morning because I'm not feeling well enough to go to work tomorrow. I'm dreading it, but it has to be done. :/

    Phone calls where there's some sort of obligation attached, like an appointment... I dread those >.<

    For some reason I do alright with social calls though. I'd rather talk to a friend on the phone than online.

    I made the phone call but had to leave a message since no one was picking up. Then I got all anxious and paranoid that my message never got left.

    I hate the phone too! I pace around if I have to make a call. Sometimes I write down or rehearse what I need to say. But lots of anxiety with the phone. Only people I'm okay with is my mom or my husband. I never answer the phone if I don't know the number.

    Hope you're feeling better, C-Guilt! ^^^
    I rehearse too!! If I know a friend is going to call me then sometimes i write down topics to talk about just in case the conversation gets stalled .

    The phone is hell. As much as I detest meeting new people in person, I'd prefer that to talking with strangers on the phone. I will say that practice, just like with anything, goes a long way. I've had a cat that's struggled with illness over the past year. That's meant many calls to the vet. I was terrified at first, but there wasn't much choice. Over time I got to where I was almost comfortable making the calls. Then there was a point where my cat was healthy for a couple months, hence no calls to be made, but when he regressed a bit I found myself fearing the phone again, though not as much as I had originally.
