> It is a subtype of social phobia.

Do you see a therapist and/or participate in some kind of group therapy. I know you write about drugs to cure this, but really, it's a cognitive distortion (highly unlikely people are laughing at you, since most people aren't really even thinking about you). Combined with low self-esteem, which causes discomfort and awkwardness with others. This is the kind of thing which gets better when you have practice interacting with people, through a group or day program. Or see a behavioral therapist who may give you exercises to do - like go to a store and say something to the clerk.

I'm sorry you feel this way about yourself. It is a hard way to live.
