I have no problem answering the phone, but making phone calls-- to anyone except my dh basically -- --scares me to bits.
I totally have phone anxiety, but only about outgoing calls. Incoming calls I'm fine. I worked in a call center for two years and was fine answering the phone but if I ever had to call anyone back I would always try to get out of it.
I can't call to order pizza and was SO happy when Pizza Hut started having internet ordering.
I also have major anxiety being a passenger in a car, as well as airplane anxiety and have not been able to get myself on a plane since 2000.
Oh my gosh, me too, me too... !!!!
Except, I don't pick up even when it's family, most of the time. Usually, I let people leave a message. Then, I check, see who it is and what they want, and call back then. Or not... lol
I hate being on the phone, and I hate making phone calls.
Does anyone here carry a cell phone? I may be the last person on the planet that doesn't own one, just wondering.
Anyone here ever tried to analyze what makes them like this? I wonder if it's just a personality thing or if something made me this way. I've gone back over my childhood trying to pinpoint the event that made me afraid to call people, but I can't remember anything. I'm not a generally anxious person, but I am very introverted.
no cell phone here.
we have one, but it stays in the car or with dh
as a teen, I was GLUED to the phone.
I'm director of sales and marketing
I have to talk on the phone ALL friggin day *
I should just buy stock in rescue remedy...I really should.
we're out now, and I'm freaking over all the calls I have to make to set up a conference
