I decided to post this here as I'm not sure which section this would come under. I've been like this since Yr6 in primary school... And I'm the same till this present day.

In Year 6, when I answered to the register, i started going red in the face, and people on my table use to call me about it, so I got worser and worser.
Now in High School, currently in Yr10, whenever im talking to the teacher, get asked a question, talking to the class, talking to somebody I hardly know ect... I go bright red in the face. And I absolutely 100% hate it.

When I talk to my best mates, I dont go red in the face. So... Please help me, I really need some help here.

Thanks to everyone that replies with a possible answer & solution.

  • hypnotherapy is a good way, there are also classes that you can pay to get in where they often make you try to over come your shyness. i dont remember what the class is called, i had a friend go to it and he came back a new person. he wasnt shy anymore! i think it was either this class or hypnotherapy. of course hypnotherapy is said to only work on certain people (no matter what reason they try hypnotherapy) so it may not work for you. if you cannot find out what this class is then you can always look in a mirror and pretend like you are talking to somebody that you dont know (like a nice looking girl or the news paper guy) just do that until you feel like actually trying it with a stanger (like the new teacher or the new kid in school) hope i could have helped :)

Just like talking to myself isnt it though. Hmm, worth a try anyway, thanks.

Hmm, worth a try anyway, thanks. no problem. if you would like to see if theres a better option for you, you can search google. you would be suprised at how many ways there are to get rid of being shy, but like i said with the hypnotherapy not all options are good for certain people. try what you like until you see that its working. then just keep doing it :D

  • Hello, I read the other answers and while doing so I remembered 2 of my 4 daughters...In their cases it was not shyness...It was nerves...That is what it sounds like to me...Any authority figure, or new person, You are nervous...Let me ask you...If you do something you were not suppose to, and you are questioned...does it happen then as well, what about your neck, upper chest and ears...does same thing happen there also....as for neck and upper chest area...is it kinda blotchy looking, ( NOT A SOLID RED ) in the beginning of change from regular color to red....IF SO....NERVES...causes stress....TRY THIS...Breath in regular...now, lick lips to wet, as you breath out...purse lips to blow them dry....This will make the hypothalamus release natural brain chemicals to CALM you...and no one will even know you do this as it will look normal....I do not know a name for it other than nervous....GOD BLESS!! Mary:)

  • I was the same way and still am to a certain extent. You probably don't have Toastmasters Club, but it helps you become comfortable speaking. I like the hypnosis idea, self confidence and fear...you may be having panic attacks to a certain extent. Biofeedback would be the ultimate therapy.

Only in Yr10 at high school. I think It's starting to go slightly now though, I've found myself talking to a few people who I wouldn't dare to - normally. Not sure though...
