Hi and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your question...

You appear tto be suffering from a Social Anxiety Disorder. There are good treatment strategies to help you overcome this problem. Treatment can be in the form of medication or psychotherapy and both are proven to be effective. I would suggest that you consult a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and further management.

Wish you all the best.

Cardiologist Dr. Anantharamakrishnan's  Response
The description is highly suggestive of Depression (+/- anxiety)
You need to see an internist - after a general check up/ work up - he will refer to you a Psychiatrist.
The very fact, you have written to this site, suggests you have decided to get yourself treated and to get well.
With counselling and/or medicines, the chances for recovery and return to normalcy are very bright - You seem to have a bright future indeed!
Go to a doctor
Get well soon
Good luck
