And I feel so paranoid. Recently i've been walking and I feel like my legs could give in and i'd just collapse when people look at me. And I see people laughing at me, because it's so obvious how self conscious and scared I am. I don't enjoy anything anymore really apart from when I take drugs or drink alcohol. When i'm on my own I feel empty and down. When i'm with other people I feel anxious and my moods can change dramatically from one moment to the next. I'll be feeling happy and upbeat one minute, and suicidal the next. I feel so empty and everything seems so meaningless.

See a doctor or psychologist. These feelins aren't apart of you, it is an external disease. Fight it, don't let it win. Like any illness, immediate action is required. Somebody can help you

Just so you know, you're not alone.
I know that doesn't help much, but it's true.

I'm the same way. Major major social anxiety. Major major depression. The sad thing is, even when I do get close to someone, it's just a matter of time before they see what a freak I am and leave.

But,
i've adapted the thought that i'm even tougher than the rest of the world, because I (fear?) them and overcome it on a day-to-day basis. Alcohol and drugs help me majorly, but I know it isn't right.

Dr. Prescribed drugs may help you a little (they did for me sometimes) but the sad thing is, we're doomed. I've yet to find a 'cure' for this disease, but so far the best drug is talking to someone like-minded and being morose together.

Let's go get a drink, eh? At night, sunglasses, you and me. Let's go.

I feel the same way mna. When I am alone everything seems wrong and I am paranoid. I have absolutely no friends and nowhere near getting a lover. It led to heavy drinking. Bad thing is im a big strong male and it looks stupid when I feel nervous around a weaker specimen.

This kind of problems are due to mental picture or fear one has. You have to repattern your behaviour. Read "frog into princes" by richard bandler. Appley what you read.
