I shut down when I get stressed. I just want to hide from everyone and everything. Never happened during a speech/presentation though. Because I know that I have to get through those.

It's been a long time since I have been so stressed by something that I lost my ability to think at all. I do experience a lull or lag in my thought process from it from time to time, hell just yesterday I was freaking out over something I messed up at work.

I think most people hate public speaking, I know I don't even like being the center of attention at meetings which can make me leery of asking questions.

During a speech or test, no. If anything the anticipation/wait before giving the speech is worse than going up there and doing it. If I get really stressed than I usually feel it in my gut and it's annoying and distracting but doesn't have the ability to shut down my ability to speak or think.

I wouldn't know what stress is. Not enough shits given to let anything bother me.

Physics class was the most stressful experience ever for me. The professor was so shitty and did a terrible job teaching the class...not to mention help was hard to come by. I was so lost and frustrated. As you can tell, physics isn't my cup of tea.


I'm actually going through that situation right now. I'm currently in physics in highschool, and I have a teacher who is brand new. She does not know how to teach physics at all, most of the students in that class are failing. That is the only class that is giving me, stress the teacher doesnt know how to teach and its just hard to understand. I get anxious and stressed out by being in that class because I just dont know what to do and i'm frustrated because I cant understand any of what the teacher is trying to teach. There arent tutors where I live that teach physics either.. I sorta started avoiding that class because of that stress and anxiety I feel.

i've got anxiety and have suffered panic attacks. not fun. theres a few customers at my job that trigger these attacks because they have verbally abused me in the past so my brain automatically goes into defence mode. other panic attacks i can luckily catch early. my breathing gets shallow which causes me to feel dizzy, which if not looked after will result in me hyperventilating and turning into a blubbering mess in the fetal position on the floor. so deep breathing throughout the day really helps my anxiety and stress levels. once i leave the job and never have to deal with my other triggers i'm set.

I'm good with stress, my spring constant is really high.

Another fun topic from yours truly.

I had an interesting experience today. I am getting my arse handed to me by my second semester of Differential Equations. I was having a friend tutor me, when 3 questions in... I could hardly speak English, let alone do math! I think this is due to a high level of stress?



I feel your pain buddy, the dreaded dif eq, I got a B in that class but it was struggle. Hate math........

I feel like crying and shaking before reporting in front of the class. But now, I am learning how to cope it.

I can do one of two things. Shut the world out of my life or get irritated and piss everyone off
