thanks for the responses everyone - -props to you all who have done it!! it really inpires me that there is hope and that it isn't impossible and it can be done. ;] i'm am just so worried that my hands will start shaking uncontrollably and my voice will quiver...gosh i hate when that happens! i feel completelyyyy humilitated. I remember it happened once after I read outloud in my Philosophy class, i was so embarassed, though i dont think anyone noticed - -i stopped going to class and loss all motivation and failed the course
:( OMg I am so nervous about speech class- starts in 8 days!!! in 8 days I will attempt to conquer my worst nightmare. I have been dreading speech so much that I actually considered changing my major to something that didn't require me to take speech - -( what a punk, i know) . . but I decided that I need to face this!! did any of you use meds??

I did my speech class almost 2 years ago. It went Ok I guessed.
I had to do a total of 4 speeches.
1- 3 min Introduction
2- 6-8 min informative
3- 6-8 min perspuasive
4- group speech -teaching the class
15 min each student with a total of 45min.

Thanks god!! I've got through it.
Actually there were a couple students that were really nervous than I was.However, I don't think they had SAD. They just probaply had the anxiety for the speech only.
At that time my anxiety was not so bad, it got worse later on but now it is little better. i just tranfered to another big school. So i'm battling with it right now. Pray for me you guys, i'm praying for all of you too.
Happy Memorial Day!!
woww thats tough!!!I don't think I can do that... thanks for sharing!! you'll do great at your next school if you was able to get through that!!

I took a Public speaking class last year. I usually freak out or occasionally start crying when I give speeches but this class was different. I was semi-confident getting up in front of my class...but as soon as I opened my mouth is when everything when downhill. lol. I think the teacher felt so bad for me she gave me a B- in the class. I honestly thought I was going to fail. I'm SO glad I didn't because now I don't have to worry about it anymore. But I have an acting class that I have to take soon...and that's what I'm REALLY afraid of.
awwwwww did u cry in front the class???
