I am outgoing and very sociable but I also have terrible problems with anxiety. It makes it hard for me to open up to people and let them know the real me. I really only have a couple of "real friends." I know a lot of people but I don't get close to people easily or really let them know the real me, if that makes sense.

I do not make friends easily. Honestly before I was on Zoloft I barely spoke to new people unless I just had to. I have trust issues and have a hard time making friends due to that. It takes me a while to get warmed up to a person before I can talk to them as a friend and even longer before I will trust them.

All 3 of you girls sound just like me. Isn't it sad that we have to live life feeling this way. I always feel like I am the only person in the world that feels like this. I also find it hard to trust people.. when it comes to showing them the real me, a lot of times I don't even know who that is anymore. I'm not on medication... but after hearing what zoes_mommy said about zoloft, I think I need some!

Same here! I have very, very few friends. What "friends" I do have are mostly the spouses of DH's friends. He's 13 years older than me at 47 so they're all older and call me a young'en or talk to me like I'm a freaking kid
I also feel like I'm imposing or asking too much even for something simple like a glass of water, even if I was choking to death. I'm also very passive at times so I let people use me just to have them as friends. I know it's not healthy and I'm working on it but self confidence is so hard to attain after beating your self down and berating your self for so long!

I make friends easily but people tend to annoy me, so I don't have a lot of friends and I like it that way
