I have social and general anxiety disorder, I don't do good out in public unless I have my earphones on and music playing and stay away from huge crowds. I do find myself easier to talk online than anywhere else is that normal.

It's perfectly normal just remember not to listen to your music to loud it'll damage your hearing and you don't need that. Actually talking to people online or over the phone can help you develop confidence and should be good for your social anxiety in the long run. Just remember there are cyber bullies out there and if you run into that type of thing don't let it get you down.

I never leave home without my headphones and my music. Not just saying that to make you feel better. If anybody I knew ever saw me out without headphones on they would think there was something wrong with me. Always have my music blasting. It is a good form of distraction. Plus I love music. If it helps you, then use it.
