...are you sunburned?

I have self-diagnosed myself with Social Anxiety Syndrome. Besides my complete and utter inability to function normally when I'm around other people, I have this little problem called extreme blushing.

This is what most girls look like when they blush.

Kind of endearing, isn't it?

This is what I look like when I blush.  

Yep. It's not even confined to my cheeks. My blush consists of blotchy, red patches all over my face, chest, and neck. The problem is, I don't just blush when a cute boy is talking to me. I blush whenever anyone ever is talking to me.

Standing in line at Subway, for example. 

 Or when a random girl compliments my outfit. 

 Heaven forbid I have to answer a question in class. That situation usually brings tears as well. 

One thing that has saved my dignity on a few occasions is that my blush is so bad, it can pass for a really bad sunburn. Of course, it doesn't work if you're with someone else before the blush happens. Because then they know that you're lying. 

The End
