Social skills: You can rebuild your social skills by repeating positive affirmations to yourself, talk to yourself in front of the mirror, write positive quotes to yourself on mirrors, index cards... By the time you know it you will start becoming what you say. Like ' I am very well liked', i enjoy socializing'. Things like that. Keep me posted.

See mental health: It sounds like you need some cognitive behavioral therapy (cbt) to assist you with regaining social skills. I would see a psychiatrist or psychologist when possible.
