[Anxiety?]My head literally overheats when I try to talk to people
Hi folks thanks again for the awesome replies for my previous request! I have been pretty much a hermit loner for a majority of my life and after going to the bank just now and botching a relatively simple request I feel that I should stop and address this issue since I am 31 and going to art school next month, which I am told that I will be expected to do something like a presentation monthly and actively engage in collaborations with people after a certain point
1) My eyes starts watering and eventually tears fall when I try to look at someone directly in the eyes while talking, which makes things really awkward because it doesn't make any sense at all since i'm not even sad or emotional. To avoid the problem I just don't look at people in the eyes anymore but then some people gets really offended if I don't
2) It's not hyperbole, my head really heats up, I put my hand to my forehead and it's like feverish warm. I couldn't have a meaningful conversation/discussion or convey my actual thoughts or make good decisions because after a short while my mind begins to shut down
At this point I am really unsure what I should really do or try, I've read numerous self help books, tried meditation and talked to a couple of therapist over the years and while doing all these stuff really made me a much more positive person the core physical problems still remain. Pretty much the only thing I've not done is medication, because i am kinda afraid of horrible side effects which might or might not occur
