Unhappy i think there is something wrong... - June 14th 2011, 12:26 PM

I am really quiet...not just shy quiet i mean basically silent
I feel nervous and scared by the thought of talking and if i know i need to talk in front of people for example a class presentation then i will be physically sick before it. I also get to the point of crying if i need to speak to people and i have to plan and 'rehearse' what i am going to say to them and the possible answers they can give, even with my friends.
its got worse this year at school because i have completely new teachers and in lessons with none of my friends and i sit by myself in the corner, which isn't helping me. The people i am in lessons with make fun of how quite i am and some of them have bullied me in the past too.
every one usually puts it down to shyness but i think its more than that. its really effecting my life.

sorry if this doesn't make sense and i rambled on a bit.

theres this girl in my class like this and its nothing to be ashamed of i mean sometimes its gonna take a kind person to come talk to you first but it doesn't appear that any of your classmates will, so I would suggest finding someone just like you or similar and ya'll talk.. I think it has more to do with your confidence level, and I over came my fear by saying who cares what other people think they are gettin up infront the class too and I am sure someones presentation is ten times worse than mine.. We had to reinact plays and what not and what made me more confident to get up there was that other people where making fools of themselves so how bad could this really be... I think with time this will get better you just need to step out your comfort zone for a bit.. Start by answering a few questions out loud in class or making small comments on things, just start small
