I get most anxious whenever I have to speak in front of a crowd. I'm okay with a small group but feel intense fear in front of a crowd. I am always amazed by performers who thrive on that type of attention when I dislike it so much.
My anxiety is triggered when the focus is on me, I found my wedding day so difficult but my friends and family were so great and understood. It also gets triggered when I'm going to be in a large number of people like in a pub or club or even when shopping, this isn't as bad as it used to be - the pub still gets me though. My singing lessons are helping me no end, putting me in situations I would normally run away from.
