This may seem a little less dire than other things on this site, but I'm still just looking for help, same as everyone else. I had bad anxiety for about a year, and I've got over most of it now, the only thing that still remains is my fear of large assembly's of people. I'm in my last year of high school, and I have an assembly every friday morning. As I write this I'm sat at home missing it. Its one of the only things that still seriously freaks me out. I want to go and just do it, because when I think about it I just think ' I'll probably feel bad for 5 mins then feel fine', But then this perpetual dystopian future springs to mind, where i think that if i go all the anxeitys will come back and I will be at square one again. I used to fear going to school, then only a few lessons, and now i'm comfortable all the time at school. Assembly, buses, and going to the theatre or cinema are the four things that still scare me, and the correlation between those is of course, being in a large room with a bunch of people. Its less im afraid of the people, its whenever I do go i just feel physically sick, my palms start sweating and I start shaking, like uncontrollably. I know Its not fear of people, because If i'm with a big group of people outside I never feel bad, its only when Im inside i feel kind of trapped. What should I do?
