Not sure if this is in the correct thread. I feel really uncomfortable being outdoors, when I'm just going into town and stuff and doing normal things. It's really hard to explain the feeling, I just don't feel comfortable, I feel really unconfident and nervous. I haven't really been out much in the last 6 months, and if I have it's either been walking to the shop and straight back, or going out in the evening/night/morning (like 3 times in 6 months) to a small dark bar that plays really loud music that I like and even then I've been very drunk and with at least 1 person I know. It's spring now, and there is no need for me to walk around in a massive jacket with my hood up, so I can't really hide from the world anymore, and walking around in just a lightweight jacket/top thing makes me feel really vulnerable. I've not always been like this I remember I used to be fine when I was a bit younger. I just went out to go to a local corner shop for some food and I immediately bought cigarettes just so I had something in my blood stream so I could go the extra length to buy beer, then semi-ran home and started drinking, now I feel a bit silly. (I'm not even a smoker, I do drink too much though.) How can I fix this? I guess it is a confidence issue, but how do I get it back?
