Social Anxiety Disorder happens when a person avoids all kinds of social contact because of fear of being judged, bullied, harassed or even just talked to.
We all had a classmate back in junior high school who, despite being a smart student, was terrified when having to present a school paper in front of the class.
I used to be (and think I still am) quite of an extrovert.
However, since the coronavirus outbreak in spring 2020, I have been experiencing an unexpected social anxiety disorder.
When people don’t wear masks properly, I freak out. Too many people at the supermarket’s line gives me the creeps. I give excuses to avoid traveling with friends or just having a beer in front of a real person.
