I find myself avoiding people in general, desiring to walk around like a ghost. I hate being acknowledged. When someone sits next to me on the bus, I cringe inside and inch away. I always maintain a personal 'bubble'. I hate compliments, and I fear everyone is suspicious/judging me. I usually feel like declining invitations to socialize, being too preoccupied with my weight and not feeling like faking emotions in front of people, but lately I have been forcing myself to go and this has been beneficial.
Does anyone else find themselves this way, especially after gaining weight?
I wasn't always so antisocial and depressed.
