I have long been at a point with my AvPD (avoidant personality disorder) that I have not attended Jumah for months on end. I avoid praying in mosques at all costs unless I know I will literally miss the previous prayer time. For anyone that suffers from social anxiety, or just anxiety in general, how do you bring yourself to go to mosque? How do you manage to go out and not feel like a thousand eyes are burning into your skin? I can't even see myself going to Eid prayer. Any help would be appreciated.
Asalaam Alaykum dear SC members, I suffer from social anxiety. I am engaged and sometimes I find it very hard to communicate with my fiancee because of my fears, doubts and anxeties. There are moments I get shut down and want to be alone. With Allah's will I am going to get married Inshallah. Everything in this relationship is so new to me. I am very insecure how to act towards him. I fear that if I share my insecurities all the time woth him that he might stop loving me and leave me. I know I think irrational, but these thoughts keep popping into head and doesn't leave me at rest. I suffer alot sometimes. I don't what to do. Is there any of you with mental health issues ( be it social anxiety or anything else) married? If yes how do you and your spouse cope woth this? Thank you, Sara
I want to be a good Muslim, and Islam is a social religion, but the idea of walking into an unfamiliar Islamic center terrifies me. What kind of baby steps can I take to overcome my irrational fear? I don't know of any Shia centers or people near where I live. I can either go to a Sunni Islamic center, go a long way to a Shia center, or (probably) stay home. It isn't just Islamic center that I avoid, it's all people places. Shops and museums are fine, just not places where people talk. And you know, I actually like people, I think they are interesting. I just don't know how to interact with them face to face.
