I have kind of a social problem with people. Especially when presenting to groups of people in a work setting. My past experiences have not went well. I have been really nervous during past presentations and it was very obvious. My heart starts beating rapidly and sometimes I can hardly talk. I have talked with others about this and they say that all it takes is experience. Well, it seems that I get worse the more I present. My confidence suffers and it is like a downward spiral, getting worse each time. It is very embarrassing and tough emotionally. I have seen ads on TV about social anxiety drugs that help people with these kind of problems. I used to be extremely shy and nervous when meeting people. I am getting better but I am still not always comfortable. I still find it hard to meet people. I have several presentations for work coming up in the near future and I do not want to resort to those anxiety drugs. Do you have any advice?
