Could be an extreme case of fear of strangers not a fear in speaking itself, xenophobia i think it is (or is that fear of foreigners, erg)? I have similar feelings with my paranoia of people watching me (I live in a ridiculously small town where everyone knows who I am even when I've never met them in my life before)-- makes me fear interactions with people I don't know ('cause maybe they do know me, you know?) and I generally try to avoid talking to... anyone.

I have had fears of going out in public, its getting a little better ebcause i forced myself to do it, i started off slow just going to the jiffy store, worked my way up to bigger places, and if i started ot feel bad would walk out and just sit in the car. Try starting slow.. maybe find a chat room as you have and talk on it several times.. then maybe when in a store just a smile or nod at a stranger... work your way up to the harder things
