more confused

i came to this thread thinking i have social anxiety.
after reading some posts, i am more confused.
is it possible to only have social anxiety when you are alone? i can't seem to go places without thinking people are judging me. this only happens when i am alone. i grew up very shy. however, if i am out with anybody (be it a friend, a coworker, or even an aquaintance), i dont give a ****** what anyone thinks. i can go to a party and mingle with everyone as long as i know the person i came with is 'somewhere around'. people are surprised when i tell them that i think i'm shy!
the thing is...i like doing things alone...sometime i feel like talking to people is a 'chore'
so my question this just a confidence issue? or is this some type of anxiety problem.

Re: more confused

I'm the same way. Social anxiety is not just about being openly shy. Have you experienced any of the common symptoms (dizziness, fatigue, etc)?
