It's like I start to merge with them, I can feel myself go into them and them into me, so to speak. Engulfment. (Naturally from a psych point of view this is something I need and want?). It doesn't feel nice and is disabling. A drink at this point is good because it gives me an *edge*, as well as some calm. (I grew up in a situation where everything had to be interpreted and it's a strain to be doing it all the time.) By the end of a few hours of this I'm a wreck. All I want to do is whatever is the right thing to do. I start making social mistakes. The end point is being completely immobilised, unable to leave the situation. It's got nothing to do with other people being horrible. (I get on best with direct people who are accepting but not neccessarily similar to me.)

What I mean by 'Social Phobia' is basically what most text books would describe it as. I am a 'text book case', if you like, and have experienced most (if not all) 'typical' symptoms of SP there are. It would take up too much room to explain the whole bunch of symptoms here, but look up any basic definition of SP, and that will be what 'I' mean by it.

Does that make sense? Hope it does.
