Hi john,

I think you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder known as social phobia. The best treatment for this type of problem is psychotherapy. Some folks take medication to treat the problem, but you may choose to do a combination of treatments (i.e., meds and therapy). I think you should go to see a clinical psychologist to talk about your problem. They can provide you with some help dealing with this problem. Additionally, if they feel you need medication, they can refer you to see a psychiatrist to get on something to help with your anxiety. But honestly, the best treatment method is to do therapy first. Good luck with your treatment.
