    I'm always a shy type of person and when there's a crowd in front of me, I really feel nervous and my hands are trembling so much that I can't stop it. The more I'm exposed to the crowd the more I'm shaking and sometimes I collapse in front. In your personal thoughts or experience about this. Do I have anxiety? Do you think it could be anxiety symptoms? If It is then what should I do about it?

    Hi mugwump, I do think you have anxiety. I think tms tools from the structured educational program and Alan Gordon's program can help, but I suggest reading or listening to Clair Weekes to specifically explain how to approach anxiety. She writes about face float and let time pass which I think is like somatic tracking that Alan Gordon teaches.

    This is only my opinion, I am not an expert, but I think your brain has a "habit" that you are in danger when you are groups. You can slowly teach it you're safe.
    Something that has helped me is to remember that if I practice these techniques and it takes awhile, time will pass either way. I am doing a good thing for myself even if it doesn't happen quickly. I also heard someone say when asked when will it start to happen, as soon as you begin the journey, you are changing.
