Hello, I'm 21 years old, and I have become really really paranoid. I have a stutter, although I see this as a big problem I am able to hide it very well so nobody notices it, because I believe I don't hide it they will think I am weird. I'm paranoid nobody likes me, my friends never speak to me first and I have to make all the effort all the time. I have trust issues, I don't really trust anyone apart from my parents. I worry that people don't like and look down on me because I haven't ever had a job due to my stuttering. Not many people even know I have a stutter because I am able to hide it so well, but I am basically living in fear someone will notice it. I am trying to stop hiding it but I just can't bring myself to do it. I also feel like the friends I have at the moment would make fun of me behind my back if I stopped hiding my stutter and I'm meant to be going on holiday with them all in about a month. What can I do to stop feeling like this? I HATE feeling like how I do. Please can someone help me.
