Social Anxiety Disorder

It is very normal to feel apprehensive about doing something in public when the spotlight is on you. Most people feel a bit nervous about standing up and giving a talk, lecture or speech.  However, if you feel excessive fear and worry about most everyday situations that involve people you may be experiencing Social Anxiety Disorder or Social Phobia. This can seriously affect the quality of your life.  

You may perceive the tiniest focus of attention on you as a massive searchlight shining on you and you will feel terrified that you are going to embarrass yourself in some way or appear stupid.  Some people feel phobic just walking down the road as they feel that everyone is looking at them and judging them badly.

It might mean that you will never contribute anything at meetings – even though you will have a whole list of valuable suggestions in your head! As with most anxiety disorders, if a social situation presents itself, you will have physical symptoms such as extreme hotness and blushing, a racing heart, breathlessness, shaking, feeling faint and a nauseous upset stomach. If you know that a social situation is coming up you may worry about it constantly for days, even weeks in advance and when that social event finally arrives you may actually feel ill and distressingly self-conscious.
