Re: You mean I'm not the only one with this problem!!
Since I discovered this site, I've been trying to figure out what triggered this in me. It could be a million things, from my mother knocking on the bathroom door asking if I was ok if I was in there for more than 5 minutes, to my first experience cohabitating with a man, when I really got in the habit of 'putting it off' until I was alone. I guess I'm still in shock to think that an irrational fear could prevent my body from acting naturally. But, it definitely does! I've bought a book on social phobia, 'Dying of Embarassment'. It's got some good info., but not really anything directly addressing this. Eventually, when I learn more, I'd love to write or contribute to a book about this. Is someone here still working on one?
