I feel really uncomfortable around other people

When I'm in large crowds I get angry and I just can't deal with people. I don't really like other people (I prefer animals) they make me nervous and scared.

I lay awake at night thinking and having conversations in my head and i almost always end up making myself feel terrible and crying, I have more conversions in my head than I do with actual people.

I don't know what's wrong with me and why I feel this way. What should I do?

First off, I commend your vulnerability in opening up here online about what is going on with you and I’m glad to see you’re wanting to seek answers and help for understanding your situation better. There are many mental health issues that involve an individual experiencing social difficulties, such as the ones you mentioned here.


As the therapists here, including myself, have such limited information as to what you’re going through, it would be unwise for any of us to suggest a diagnosis for you. The best option for you would be to see a professional therapist or psychologist who could get the appropriate background information and make an accurate diagnosis.


Once you have a diagnosis, then your therapist can make suggestions as to the best treatment plan moving forward, which may include a psychiatric evaluation for medications, ongoing individual therapy and potentially even group therapy. I wish you the best of luck in finding the right professional for you.
