I don't know whats wrong with me, I can't start conversations unless I'm spoken to. Either I'm nervous or I can't think of anything to say.... even then I can't hold a conversation.

I honestly can't! :(

You probable don't want to hear this, but It will probable get better with time. Don't try and think of something to say, just let it pour out.

Nothing's "wrong" with you,you're probably just a little shy,like so many others in this world :) There are 2 types of people,those who start a conversion and those who wait to be approched first...what if we would all start talking at the same time,it would be a mess xD I'm sure you'll built up your confidence with time, when you're approached just sway along with it and everything will run smooth.

Speak to your doctor, see a counsellor perhaps.

Home schooling is not good for social interaction, in fact it stunts social skills. You may get a better education but at what cost?

I feel the same way... my mother does this because after she and my dad got divorced, she didn't want me getting separated from her in any way possible. DX

That doesn't quite tell me why you get nervous. I'm thinking insecurity. You know, you're worried about sounding stupid or something.

Insofar as that's true, my advice is to intentionally say stupid shit to people. Not at a job interview or anything, but if you don't have to worry about consequences too much just say inane things and you'll realize that you can survive doing so. Once you're over that hump, general chatting might come more naturally to you.
