Well I am very nervous and a absolute wreck when it comes to public speaking. I don't know why I get afraid. It's the only thing I fear, I can sleep after watching thousands of horror movies and pop ups and go to sleep. But if I was ever told to go to speak in front of people even like groups of 7 I get nervous and breakdown.
I was hoping since many of you in the debate section do have fine pointers... Perhaps have a several people debate or just speaking in general in Skype.
My senior year is coming... Rising senior....
Mind Skyping with me and help me get rid of anxiety thanks
I would love some help. Thank you...

Welcome to the site.

I'm sure someone will take you up on this.

Public speaking is actually ranked in polls as a persons greatest fear.

Well, another new member just popped up the other day offering to do pretty much exactly that. Message QueenVictoria.

Why are you so obsessed with me, dude? Your poor parodies are just to feel better about your poor self; how can you deny it?

Thanks, is queenvictoria legitimate? I just find threads tossed around here about her coaching, because her pm isn't exactly open. How do you contact her.
And at post above antidoctor or whatever. Thanks for you super brilliant reply. Very intellectual... I am typing my issue on my iPod touch. "Ha, faggot"...
Idiotic grammar nazis... Trying to prove their inferior self with false common era punctuational and prove yourself with contractions. Then try telling and posting your finding on impressive grammatical error on an informal forum on reddit and debate.org how mature and intellectual you truly are. Just because I am bad at public speaking in real life. I don't mind expressing myself on informal forum posts... Idiot.

@thanks airmax1227 I appreciate it. Haha, it is pretty much my only fear (that I know of)
@thanks ConservativePolitico I'd really appreciate that :)

FYI, though, I have no fear of public speaking. It's the demon living inside of me, and it's a fear for others. You wouldn't know anything about that, though, would you? :P

My bad, I was eating dinner. I guess for me, its inner anxiety or ambiguity. The means of being afraid of what is bound to happen or its just that my heart just starts racing and my body just starts to shake when i am forced to deliver a speech or a few lines of introduction throughout a large crowd. i suppose I relate that very well haha

I sent you a friend request. Pm me if you are interested.

I'd have took you for one of the midlife-crisis-because-you-feel-you've-lost-control kinda guys as opposed to my just being afraid of murdering everyone/never feeling like I had control. Don't call the cops, though; I won't.
