Try seeing a psychiatric doctor. They may be able to help your disorder with medication.

Try to force yourself to think about it so much, like think about something else..try talking to yourself, and tell yourself"you can do it"over and over inside your head..and try to make overcoming your fears one of your goals. Just think about this whats the worst thing that could happen if your put yourself out there, not everyone will always like you, but so what who cares about everyone, and if anything happens people are usually so worried about there own problems they forget about others..You can do it I believe in you..Remember u only live once u mind as well make the best of it, dont have anything like anxeity take over your life you gotta to be stronger then that and just think positive, and if you start thinking alot about one thing try to just shut yourself, you just gotta to force yourself and challenge yourself..I hope this helps, now this should work, but if you want the easy way out I guess you can go on some anti-anxiety pills, but u have to kno they dont fix the problem if anythin theyll add a new problem since all pills come with side effects/

I had the exact same problem, the best way to solve the issue is to use natural breathing methods which will keep you relaxed, focus and keep the blood flowing in your body. At first it is very hard, but soon, you will feel the full effect and will be cured.
