I feel it only sometimes during the day. If my routine is changed I feel it. If something goes wrong I feel it. If during the day something bad happens I feel it. On a crowded bus I feel it and train. Or even when I am at live concert I feel it. But getting better with my social skills now so don’t feel Anxiety when I’m around people. I use to but not anymore and I think I owe it to the bowling community for my social skills. Since doing public speaking and working with the yeep group my Anxiety has calmed down. I only have to work on 1 thing now. Its when I am under pressure like in a competition or a tough environment. Anxiety will eat you up if you let it. Dont let it take over your life. We are much stronger then that

    Hi Aine,

    Thanks so much for talking about anxiety. My children have all experienced anxiety and social anxiety through the years, so I am so curious about all the various mechanisms for dealing with anxiety.

    You talk about Public Speaking. Did you take a public speaking class? Were you involved in a social skills group?

    Looking back over the years, what coping mechanisms did you use? And what do you think worked best?
