Why am I scared to be in a relationship?

The anxiety I feel when thinking about how vulnerable you have to be with someone makes me feel ill. How can you let yourself talk about your life to someone? I’m able to make my way through friendships with sarcasm but what about in a relationship? To tell someone about me without feeling guilty for doing so, is a concept I can’t get my head around? I get heart palpitations or I feel sick whenever I think about being vulnerable. How do you talk about parent’s addiction or infidelity? How can I talk about something that is forever consuming me yet I still don’t understand myself? Maybe that’s the point, talking so you can work it out together? But I CANT do that! I feel like a burden if I tell anyone anything, why should they care about what I’m thinking or feeling? Can anyone relate to this? Any tips?
