Where can I find help for my Blushing problem?
Asked By: Anonymous Views: 1,419 times
I was mentally and emotionally abused by my mother who purposely tried to hurt me by humialiating and putting me down in front of others. I started blushing at a young age and it got worse the older I got. It has caused me so much pain and suffering and I got so tired of trying to fight it just to feel beaten down. The weirdest thing is that their are some people I can talk to and dont seem to have a problem but then other times it is so strong that I go into full blown panic attacks and usually always make a fool out of myself. The worst thing is getting caught unawares in a place like a store and I have no way to escape and I just stand their feeling like a freak show. I now seclude myself and avoid social gatherings as much as possible. This makes me depressed as I Love to be around people. I am now 53 and want to know if their is help for me after all of these years? How and where do I go about finding help? I would greatly appreciate it.
