As Liza coments, this sounds very like Social Anxiety Disorder ( like a more severe than usual form of shyness ), and responds really well to CBT. You seem to be describing some difficulties in being assertive. Its is a bit difficult when your nan ny needs a nanny. Can't you discuss it with her, on the lines of asking whether she isn't finding this arrangement rather difficult, as she is spending so much time caring for her own child, that there's not so much time to do the job she is being paid for ?
