I get the exact same feeling if its at night time or something, especially if we're walking in the same direction, then I think, that they think, that Im following them but Im really not. Its horrible how your mind can mess with you like that

I don't feel like a criminal, but I do sometimes feel like they are going to attack me...esp if it is a man.

I feel guilty sometimes for doing nothing wrong with my mom. She's pretty sensative, and gets upset very easily even with things that shouldn't be an issue. LIke today I mentioned I wanted to get a bassinet, she got all offended because she offered to give us one and I didn't want it. I told her why a billion times...her bassinet isn't sturdy at all and my dogs may knock it over with baby in it. She still got all upset. I am much better than I was, I know I did nothing wrong and do not feel guilty....before I would have big time and would have used it weather or not I felt it was safe...

I have a massive problem with this. I feel guilty about things so often and think that I must be incompetent or inadequate again but then sometimes I find definitive evidence that it was not the case in that instance so that makes me feel better.

Once I had finished watching a midnight showing of a movie at the movie theatre and I was walking to my car in the car garage and it figures but a lone woman was scurrying to her car somewhere and she was in between me and my car so I kept along my path and of course she turns around and gives me the strangest "deer in the headlights" look that anyone has ever given me before. I just thought "I know what you're thinking bitch, just move along".

The whole reason I got this ****ing thing in the first place was because a woman I worked with thought I was a dangerous person.

Guys, don't overdo it: just mind your own business when walking, think about own things, not about people around you. Do not stare at people in front of you, away is better, and don't come too close, personal space, you know. If you do not look scary, everything should be OK.

You can't control other people thoughts and fears, and the least you can do is do not contribute to other people social phobias development
