Hi there, Its overwhelming if it's anxiety. So I can relate to how u feel at this point. But at this point u have to realize dat its a treatable condition and just requires some devotion on ur part to get rid of it. It's treatment involves some medications along with behavioural therapy. Either of the two if done exclusively won't be of much effectiveness in ur case. All u have to do is consult a psychiatrist of ur faith and let him or her guide u to a level comfortable and non anxious social interactions, boosting ur confidence in the process. I hope this helps u but feel free to consult further. take care
