Do you think you might be crazy?

I think about this some times. I mean, I am really in introvert and I have a terrible time talking to people. These days I have been trying and now the physical feeling of dread is a little bit less when I talk to someone, but now I find it impossible to find anything to say, and I feel as though I am being constantly judged or that someone is going to play a trick on me at any moment. But that's how high school is, isn't it? But I kind of wonder if maybe I was just a little bit sicker, just a tiny bit more insane, just a tiny bit worse, I would be able to go to a doctor and be treated for whatever social disease or psychological problem I have. I think I'm on the borderline. Just well enough that nobody really considers sending me to someone, but just sick enough that it makes life difficult.

Try not to worry ... you sound perfectly normal. I remember being a teenager, and being very self conscious of everything I did or said - and also feeling a bit paranoid and that everyone was 'noticing' me or talking about me behind my back. I can assure you, as you grow older this feeling will pass - and you won't care anymore about what others are thinking. After all, that's their problem! Be confident in yourself and stop worrying about others. I know it's hard when you're so young, but just enjoy every day, do the things that make you happy and associate with people you trust and feel comfortable with.

Everyone says this is normal for a teenager, but where are the other deranged teenagers who I can go be deranged with? Haha. I love how I am, just the same I want to share myself with other people more, kind of.

Thank you for the best response, Sheepie ... maybe you should move to Australia - we have lots and lots of deranged and kooky teens you could hang with. Sounds like you'd fit in perfectly!

So you are a schooler, I will encourage you to interact in service clubs. These clubs has a way of helping persons such as you to open up more. I was a member of the Key Club International and it was a joy to be a member of it. Why don't you check it out.

Yeah,i sometimes think that i am crazy too. :) it's because my mind is so powerful & imaginative that it make simple things complicated for me. and i hate that feeling! but maybe it's only because we are different but it doesnt mean we are crazy, maybe everyone of us have thought of that too. I guess it all boils down to every people being a unique indivudual form one another. ;)

There's an old saying that goes like this: If you think you are insane, you are NOT! Those that are truly insane don't think they are!

When you are young it seems important to be the same as others, and most teens will try to be accepted by acting in the same way as their classmates. The most important thing in life is to be yourself, and other people's opinions about you really don't matter. As you get older you will see that being different is really an advantage. You will do better in your studies and in the workplace because you can think for yourself rather than acting the same as everyone else. When I reached a stage in life when I no longer cared or worried about what other people thought about me, I found it was very liberating. I have always felt myself to be an outsider, and no-one could see the real me. Now I am free from thinking about how other people judge me, because it no longer matters to me and I can be who I am.

Sometimes I think I am borderline as well - I have days where I am really anxious, and sometimes I think the way I respond to things and the level of stress I have in certain situations are not normal. I may go to counselling if I can't figure out a way to get myself to be rational

There are times that I think I am cray. I think alot of it has to do with being drove nuts alot by this or that though.

I'm an introvert,too and I don't always enjoy talking to strangers. If I like them or we have something in common,we can chat forever.If I feel uncomfortable I would prefer to sit around and wait till it's over. You're not crazy,just young. It's hormones and stress and it'll all be alright in a year or two.I used to have tiny anxiety attacks,where are they now?:)
