Fear

I also have this problem and it is something I try to avoid at all costs. It's hard living this way even my family doesn't understand. I try so hard to make myself sign in front of others and will continue that in hopes that it will work. Venting to others with the same problem is conforting. Thank you all.

My scriptophobia has gotten better through the years. There was a time when I couldn't write anything in front of anyone. Now I have a desk job where I must write in front of people all day long. It is funny but I am fine as long as I am on my turf. I have even considered becoming a notary to really add the icing on the cake. The one thing I still cannot conquer is getting my drivers license renewed. For some reason that is the one thing that can still debilitate me. I obsess about it constantly and one time I was unable to fill out my application. The attendant had to do it for me!! Now that time is coming up again. Any suggestions?

I have the same issue and thought I was the only one! I have made excuses for not filling out paperwork in front of others and even had to get my friend to fill in my banking and end of day paperwork at my previous retail job. I find drinking alcohol makes it worse the following day for me too.I now take anti depressants and they are helping slightly but am still fearful of confrontation.
