Question Is this part of my OCD???

I have this thing about going out and doing things with friends/people. Infact I don't have many friends. I'm afraid of what people thing of me. I'm actually paranoid about it. I avoid situations or make excuses for not being able to go out. I won't even invite anyone to my house. I'm afraid of what people might say about how I live or what I have or don't have. I kind of makes me sad to think about it. Sometimes I wish I had friends. I know it is important to have friends. Is this a phobia or some sort of disorder related to OCD??? Thanks!

This sounds like it could be a social phobia or social anxiety that may or may not be connected to your OCD. I would discuss it with my therapist and see what he/she thinks. At face level I would be more inclined to say its a social phobia but that is only my opinion.
