How do you cope with going outside, for things like buying food, etc?

Dropping out of high school at 16 and being a shut-in for 3 years really messed me up for these sort of things. I went to the 24 hour store to buy some smokes since my parents are away, I was shaking and shit. The guy noticed it too since he asked me why. Didn't think I'd be as bad as that, I used to laugh at stories like to this.

In a few more days I'm going to get checked out so I can perhaps get my ADD prescription again and I'm afraid I may do the same thing. Maybe I should also get checked for social anxiety.

Still shaking and feel like I'm going to throw up, though that may be because I smoked damn near whole pack on the way back.

I get nervous when buying things at the store too, no matter what it is. It can just be a bag of chips and a drink and I'll usually just be standing there with my head down with my face as red as the sun. I don't mind going out of the house but it's when people notice me I get all shaken up. I wish there was a way I could turn invisible. When I get really nervous I get a sick feeling too and it shows on my whole body. Maybe it just comes from the fact that whenever anyone notices me, it's always negative attention.

You're probably shaking because you're on ADD meds (stimulant) and nicotine (stimulant).

Well, I lived like this for over 2 years, going out almost exclusively for cigarrettes, redbull and snacks...

Strangers passing by and people serving on the convenience store didn't started any conversation; talking was, hence, not really necessary at all (maybe just "good day/thanks" and that was all). So, for me, the main problem was just being seen through; with sunglasses on, it all got way easier... you know: like a kid's "invisibility glasses" (let alone how they help with daylight; going out afterhours it's still out of the question).

I pretty much live at the dollar store or stores in gas stations. They have everything I need even with the little money I leech off my parents. No one ever says anything to me either. Unless I somehow get lucky and have about $50 on hand is the only time I ever buy anything else but food or energy drinks. Which is usually spent online at Amazon for a couple cd's I want or whatever.

What kind of food do you eat? Try to eat healthy if you can. You'll get sick otherwise.

I try to go to convenience stores between 3 and 6 am. I try to go before 5 am since around that time it becomes very busy. Sometimes I can't avoid going to a store and I have to pyche myself up and plan out what I am going to do, what I will say to the cashier and so on so I don't bug out or start stuttering which usually frightens or disgusts people.

The grocery store has self-checkout.
I actually prefer going when it's busy, because I can blend in better.
