    Hi I'm Melanie. I'm new here. I don't know what to do with my life. I have almost no friends, people dont like me. I hate being social. School is going well (the academic parts.) but presentations and social interaction are really getting to me. Many days I pretend to be sick just to avoid being there.

    I recently began seeing a therapist but I don't know if that will help at all.

    That's me

    Hi and welcome...there are many people here who report the same reactions to social situations and I think it was very wise of you to work with a therapist about this...there are many successful ways to be in the world comfortably...welcome again

    Hi Melanie, welcome to SF. People mostly don't like me either, and I become very nervous in social situations. So I know how difficult that can be. Hopefully seeing the therapist will help you.

    Welcome Melanie. Give the therapist a try and if it doesn't help don't assume that it's your fault or that therapy isn't for you - try a different therapist.
