I can't bring myself to go through an interview. I tried once and froze, I thought I was going to have a heart attack. couldnt say a word and then started blurting out gibberish.
Yesterday I went to a job interview, I puked in a trash barrel and fainted in the lobby waiting for the elevator.

Social anxiety can occur for numerous reasons and effects people to different degrees, if you really feel that it is holding you back then i would advise going to see a doctor, they may recommend medication or therapy.
Most social anxiety is the result of low confidence and self esteem which can also be linked to feelings of depression, personally i would advise you if possible to look into offering a few hours here and there volunteering for an organisation.
I remember back when i was 17 i was pretty awkward in social situations and suffered to some degree from the symptoms i have mentioned, i began volunteering for a children s charity supporting kids and young adults who have special needs, you basically get matched to a person and have to supervise them, i have been doing this for the last 3 years and was actually offered paid employment by them.
Through exercise and experience i have become much more confident and i am glad to have overcome any issues that would have held me back today, if you are serious and not trolling then i recommend volunteering even an hour every week in order for you to gain some social and work experience as well as building on your confidence,(also make sure you're lifting)
PM me if you need some more advice brah
