There are only a few people I really feel comfortable talking to, and if I'm not with them I completely panic. The other day I talked to a boy that I know but don't talk to very often. There were only about six other people in the room, but after simply saying two words to him I felt completely overwhelmed and sick for the rest of the day.
I feel like people think I'm just rude because I never talk to anyone. People seem to look at me strangely at school and at basketball practice. Maybe I'm just imagining it, but there's one girl who I think might have been trying to talk to me but stopped because I seemed like I was refusing to acknowledge her. I don't know anymore.
All I really know is that there are only about four people that I can actually talk to without panicking, stuttering, or feeling overwhelmingly stressed. I'm probably too dependent on these few people, but I'm not sure what to do about it.
