    Does anybody feel paranoid when talking to people?

    I usually feel worried and paranoid of how others (even friends and family) are perceiving me while I'm engaged in a conversation with them. I don't feel comfortable speaking with anyone for extended periods of time and I often take sarcastic remarks in a personal way; even when I know the said sarcasm is just a joke. I feel hopeless sometimes, and smoke to ease my nerves.

    I feel a heightened sense of self-consciousness. I think part of it was due to BDD, feeling that people thought I was ugly. But then I became more concerned about them noticing my anxiety or other odd / unlikeable things I do. I nearly always assume the worst about what they must think of me.

    most of the time nowadays i feel okay but then there are moments when i start "thinking about it"

    like it all hits me at once.. and gets too real.. like, wow, Im really talking to someone right now, a real person, me


    ​and then i get kind of weirded out. but the key is to not think about it.

    I have this problem with authority figures or people I don't know well but respect and admire. Also overly critical people who I know don't really like me much. If I'm absolutely certain I have a true friend or If I don't care what the other person thinks I can be so different or normal with them. I know this is what makes people think I'm odd. I'll have normal conversations with some weird old hippie dude who hits on all the women at work because I really don't get anxious around him, but let my somewhat good looking supervisor talk to me and I become almost mute.
