> It doesnt sound like OCD to me.. could it be social anxiety? Or maybe just general anxiety issues.

Might be some anxiety, I don't think its social anxiety, but who knows.

> I think we all do that to some extent.. worry so much about ourselves, how we act, talk, etc.. when really other people are so wrapped up in THEMselves and their worlds, they dont even notice. I dont mean that everyone is narcisistic - just that people are so inwardly focused that often times they miss what we feel like is such a glaring mistake, or how stupid we look, or anything else.

I think we are all a little narcisitic lol. I know what you mean. I can't seem to stop overanalyzing EVERYTHING. But I am not always like that. most times I don't think about dumb things I did or said, it feels like right now everything feels exagerated, like I am highlighting my faults somehow.

> My guess (although I could be totally wrong) is that it's related to self-esteem in a big way. Maybe that would be a place to start looking and working on. The more confident and happy we feel with ourselves, the easier it is to not worry so much what others are thinking of us. At least thats how it seems to work for me.
> I hope thats at least a tiny bit helpful.

Thanks, you are probably hitting the nail on the head. The way I was worrying about the same thing over and over in my head was sounding slightly OCD, so I thought Id ask. I feel so emotionally sensitive right now.
