Spaced out

hi
I know i have S/A but im wondering about something and im scared of what it could be.
I cant be around alot of people. When i am i feel really insecure. Its gotte so bad that i cant even be around family members without feeling like they think im crazy or whatever. I can be sitting with a group of people and hear them talking, but i dont pay attention And then i just laugh or say oh really lol when they are done because i dont want to look like a space cadet. I stare off at nothing alot. Im scared of what this miught be.Is it something bad??????? Is that a sign of depression?? I hear "Whats with you?" Or "Are you here?" alot and im tired of people asking me that it makes me feel like they think im crazy and just spaced out. Im not on any medications or anything. Nothing feels right anymore. I dont feel like i used to. I have low self esteem/. social anxiety, and its just getting worse. I cant take a compliment i feel like they are jus trying to make me feel better, and everyone knows im really ugly. I cry about my looks and my life alot and ive really isolated myself from everyone even family members. It feel like im in a fog all the time.......

Individually these as all symptoms of "clincal" depression. You need to understand that "clinical" depression could also be a symptom of a greater problem such as a hormonal irregularity.

You should mention all this to your GP, then make certain any major illness is ruled out before accepting anti-depressants. Unfortunately the only way to know whether it is clinical depression is after your cured (hindsight), but look on the bright side, "there is a cure"!

Oh I forgot ot mention, you may not even require medication, depending on how severe your problem actually is. You'll see a lot of people recommending CBT on these boards.

I think researching CBT should certainly be high on your priority list!
