Ever since starting secondary school I've slowly started to delve into becoming socially anxious in certain situations, and it's really frustrating me and bringing me down. It only happens when I have to speak out in front of the class or do a presentation, and I am fine in most other situations.
Whenever I have to do a presentation, talk in front of the class or even contribute something I gulp and become short of breath. I also start to sweat and my voice just completely starts to stutter and freeze. It also doesn't help that I rush everything so much.
I'm in year 12 (going into y13 in September) and the problem seems to be getting worse. The last presentation which I had to do (which was a year ago for English in year 11 I completely messed up, starting stuttering and it was obvious to everyone how nervous I was, and that day turned out to be one of the worst in my life
) I'm just nervous that I might have to do more speeches and presentations next year and in university and that I might end up making a fool out of myself, again.
Is this anxiety issue ever going to go away?
