What makes you feel very anxious and nervous?

Is there anything in particular that makes you nervous and anxious and makes you sweat a lot? If I have to do a presentation in front of people, that really makes me anxious and nervous.

for me, it's the fear of making a mistake, of saying the wrong things, looking bad in front of people. i'm such a paranoid when i'm in front of a large group. but one-on-one, i could pretty much handle.

Another good point of fearing of making a mistake, especially in front of people. That makes me nervous too.

Just being around a lot of people makes me anxious. Any type of social situation bothers me to some extent.

Being around a lot of people does make me nervous or people that I do not like.

I agree with that statement as well, especially if a cop is right behind me on the roads even though they are not after me.

Hospitals make me nervous as well. Needles don't make me nervous though. :-)

I am so sorry to hear that you could not sleep. Sometimes I get nervous when we are about to have a big company meeting because I worry about layoffs. Public speaking definitely is my most nervous and snxious moment.

I don't even have to be in front of people to get nervous. I get nervous just talking on the phone. I had a benefit dinner for my grandson and I gave an interview for it on a local radio station. It went live so I think thats what scared me the most. But once I got talking I was ok. I don't ever think I got so nervous that I sweat alot.

I get a little nervous talking on the phone but not too much. I get nervous when I get put on the spot about something as well as public speaking.

Speaking publically. Praying publically.

Public speaking has always been my greatest fear. I used to call out sick at school to avoid it. :-)

Nothing makes me more nervous than speaking in front of a class. It is okay if I am sitting down but not when I am standing up. I hate having so many eyes looking at me. :-)

I get very nervous and anxious if I have to speak infront of a crowd, also interviews and sometimes when I meet someone for the first time. Now I think about it the older I get the worse it seems to get, lol. So I think I'll stick to talking behind a screen from now on, lol

I'm the same way... doing a presentation makes me realllly nervous. My voice and hands shake, and everyone can notice. Also, I get a little anxious in crowds or elevators.
