I'm perfectly fine about opening up to strangers, adults, and little kids. In fact, people are always saying I'm good with kids and that I should be a lifeguard at my community pool, since I know everyone that goes there. I could also be a babysitter. Kids like me for some reason, since I act like one all the time.

And for some reason, I have an urge to perform on stage in front of strangers, like singing or dancing in a play. I don't know what's wrong with me- I'm fine around strangers but uncomfortable around people I know (that aren't my friends).

When it involves talking to people my age that I already know, like from school, I just can't do it. I feel like they already have a perception of me, and I can't change that- and I can't, really.

Do I have social anxiety or something? I feel like I have it in reverse...

Help me...I'm going back to school tomorrow and I really want to find out if there really is something wrong with me. So I can go to therapy.

I kinda have the same problem, only I have a lot more than just that going on
If you want a diagnosis, or real help (Not that places like this don't but they're limited in what they can do) I'd suggest talking to your doctor or maybe even a school councilor. They probably can't do a whole lot for you, but they can tell you where you can go, and some times it helps just to talk about things..
Not great advice, but better than nothing I s'pose..

Best of luck,

Angelan

Oh, you're fine. I've tried talking to the counselor before, but I've been there so many times, that I feel like a beggar for advice. I have a doctor, and at one point they took a blood test because my mom believed that my iron was low and that somehow, that caused me to be less energetic than a 'normal person.' Turns out my iron is better than hers! I guess it just has to do with my mindset.
